Summary
Over 350 original designs, principally for sets (mostly color), floor plans, and studies created by Marius Sznajderman for Circle in the Square Theatre and the French Art Theatre in the 1950s. The collection also contains production and research notes, as well as publicity material and posters. There are also some publicity materials for Circle in the Square, programs, fliers, and postcards for individual productions, blueprints, elevations, as well as a number of black and white photographs. Also included are costume designs (possibly for The firebrand, ca. 1924), several sketches, a sketchbook with notes, ca. 1918-ca. 1924, by noted stage designer Woodman Thompson, perhaps related to Sznajderman's research for the play Ludus Coventriae.
