Abstract:

Personal and professional papers of Arthur L. Kopit, a major playwright on and off Broadway beginning in the 1960s. Professional materials include significant documentation of all his major works beginning with "Oh Dad, Poor Dad... " and continuing through "Phantom". Records include research materials, notes, drafts and completed versions of produced and unproduced plays, screenplays, teleplays, novels, and story treatments. Personal materials include correspondence, financial documents, photographs, ephemera and materials generated by Kopit's parents, wife, Leslie Garis, and children. There is an additional large amount of newspaper reviews, clippings and advertisements saved by Kopit and his family or forwarded to them by Audrey Wood, Kopit's agent, or by friends and professional acquaintances.

The first series, Projects, is also the largest series, comprising half the collection. The materials are organized alphabetically by project title. Named project files go back no further than the late 1960's and thus do not include material on the early part of Kopit's career. The materials for each project present are in no particular order yet the materials fall into identifiable categories: 1) books, pamphlets, magazines, newspaper articles, journals, taped interviews, and any other material used as research for the project; 2) handwritten drafts of the plays including preliminary outlines, diagrams, sketches, and index cards used to structure the play or piece; 3) typewritten drafts consisting of whole scripts as produced, annotated early drafts, and many partial copies of various successive; 4) correspondence with involved parties, contracts, photographs, promotional materials, material on casting, royalty agreements, publication material, copyright records and other files.
