Summary
The Jo Mielziner Designs and Technical Drawings document his long and varied career as a set and lighting designer, theater architect and consultant. This collection consists of the oversized production items which include technical drawings, painter's elevations, rough sketches, set renderings, light plots, detail drawings, preliminary drawings, and paint and materials samples. Almost every play, musical, opera, or project Mielziner worked on is represented and, for the most part, can be followed from inception to finished technical drawings. Included are theatrical productions (boxes 1-128), ballets and operas (boxes 129-130), and architectural and design projects (boxes 131-138).
The collection also includes unidentified Mielziner set designs, original drawings for his book, The Shapes of Our Theatre, and renovation plans for Mielziner's Dakota apartments, his Newtown, Connecticut house, and his brother Kenneth McKenna's house in Truro, Massachusetts.

Memorable successes include STRANGE INTERLUDE, DEATH OF A SALESMAN, A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, CAROUSEL, THE KING AND I, SOUTH PACIFIC, PICNIC and the opera, THE EMPEROR JONES.
