About the show

Curtain Up is an exhibition created in partnership between the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and London's V&A celebrating 40 Years of theater in both cities. More…

Curtain Up celebrates both the 40 year anniversary of the Olivier Awards and 70 years of the Tonys®. It tells the story of the plays, musicals and productions that have won both an Olivier and a Tony, exploring the craft and collaboration that creates spectacular international theater. Highlights include costumes and masks from Disney's 'The Lion King;' the original costume designs from "The Phantom of the Opera"; a celebration of the international hit, 'A Chorus Line;' and the original set models for 'In the Heights,' 'Arcadia.' and 'War Horse.'

On February 15, 2017 Show-Score hosted its first member meet-up at this exhibit.  You can visit the exhibit FOR FREE during library hours.
