On a winter evening in 1943, in a former Masonic Temple on West 55th Street that had been scheduled for demolition, a concert was held whose reverberations are still being felt 75 years later. That night, New York City Center was born. As the first performing arts center in Manhattan, the fledgling institution broke new ground by presenting dance, music, theater, and opera under the same roof. This multi-use approach to performing arts venues set the mold for the presentation of the arts around the country in the second half of the 20th century. Through constant innovations, City Center continues to be a performing arts leader in the 21st century. For the first time ever, a striking new exhibition will tell the story of “The People’s Theater” through a wide range of material including photographs, costumes, props, theater seats, posters, mosaic tiles, and other ephemera that provide a fresh perspective on City Center’s first 75 years.
