October 27, 2011

Program Locations:

New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, Bruno Walter Auditorium

Just in time for Halloween, a salute to the life and career of Boris Karloff. Born William Henry Pratt in England in 1887, Karloff became a horror-movie star playing the Monster in James Whale's 1931 film Frankenstein. But he was an equally distinguished stage actor, starring in such Broadway productions as Arsenic and Old Lace, Peter Pan, and The Lark, which earned him a Tony nomination in 1956. The evening will feature a guest appearance by the actor's daughter, Sara Karloff.
