Description: The collection aims to begin in the 1930s and will progress through the 20th century with videos covering the work of the Group Theater and Brecht's Berliner Ensemble. Performances from the 40s and 50s will cover works by William Saroyan, Thornton Wilder, Maxwell Anderson, for example, as well as many works by members of the renowned Actors Studio. From the 60s are performances by Jerzy Grotowski's Polish Laboratory Theatre and Joe Chaikin's Open Theatre. Moving into the 70s, the database includes productions from Joseph Papp's New York Shakespeare Festival. A broad range of contemporary productions will include, for example, works by the Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Wooster Group, Robert Wilson, and Richard Foreman. Both Broadway and off-Broadway productions are represented in each decade. The writers and actors will also span a wide range of periods and nationalities. When complete, Theatre in Video will contain more than 350 full-length plays and documentaries.
