Ellen Stewart Presents: Fifty Year of La MaMa Experimental Theatre



Theater scholar Cindy Rosenthal relates the history of La MaMa through its performance posters, capturing the irreverence and the aesthetic of La MaMa over five decades. Richly illustrated, including posters and photographs of early productions and other rarely-seen photos, and featuring interviews with a wide range of now-famous La MaMa alums, Ellen Stewart Presents is a book for theater aficionados and anyone interested in the history of Off-Off-Broadway, the cultural history of New York City, or visual culture from the ‘60s to the present. 

La MaMa has several events planned around the release of Ellen Stewart Presents including a poster exhibit, a panel discussion and exhibit and archive tours. For more info: http://lamama.org/poster_history/
