Summary
The Actor's Workshop and Repertory Theatre of Lincoln Center records contain the administrative and production records of the two companies, and document the creative output and operational activities of directors Jules Irving and Herbert Blau, and manager Alan Mandell. The Actor's Workshop was a San Francisco-based professional theater company, founded by Jules Irving and Herbert Blau that presented experimental and classic productions from 1952 to 1966. In 1965, Irving and Blau became the artistic directors for The Repertory Theatre of Lincoln Center, a fledgling theater company with the goal of presenting plays of social and emotional significance in a repertory format. Longtime collaborator and theater manager Alan Mandell accompanied Blau and Irving to the Repertory Theatre.
This collection contains both companies' administrative files, correspondence, photographs, play critiques relating to the companies' play selection process, production files, publicity materials, and set and costume designs. Additionally, the collection houses the Jules Irving papers, which contain files concerning his involvement in other companies and a collection of scripts.
