Photo Call: The Theater Photos of Joan Marcus and Carol Rosegg features an extensive selection of the many theater productions Marcus and Rosegg have photographed over the past four decades, and tells some of their fascinating and unique stories of their experiences capturing some of Broadway’s most iconic images. The exhibition demonstrates the vast breadth of their work and the shows they captured, and, in some cases, their photographs are the only documentation we have of these productions. The show also captures the photographers’ transition from analog to digital photography. 

The exhibition highlights shows like Avenue QRodgers and Hammerstein’s CinderellaFinding Neverland, HamiltonLes MisérablesThe Lion King, and Wicked—as well as many more of Broadway and Off Broadway’s biggest hits since the 1980s.

Curated by Doug Reside, the Lewis and Dorothy Cullman Curator of the Billy Rose Theatre Division, in collaboration with Marcus and Rosegg themselves, Photo Call is the first major exhibition of the two photographers who shared a Chelsea studio for many years while building their separate careers.
