Abstract:

The papers of Lucille Lortel relate the details of her life and career from teen years to her death in 1999, and include correspondence, production files, scripts, programs, production photographs, personal and family photographs, organization files, clippings, memorabilia, and scrapbooks.

Lucille Lortel's life spanned the twentieth century, so in addition to providing details of her family and personal life her papers encompass many aspects of the theatrical history of her era. Lortel is credited with fostering the Off-Broadway movement and providing a forum for avant-garde and experimental work at her Theatre de Lys. Lortel's productions at the White Barn and the ANTA Matinee Series at the Theatre de Lys brought works by Jean Genet, Sean O'Casey, Athol Fugard, and others to a wider audience. Many of these productions are represented in the collection by correspondence, programs, photographs and clippings. Over the years Lortel also worked closely with several non-profit theaters as a donor and mentor. Her affiliations with Circle in the Square, Circle Repertory Company, Goodspeed Opera House, Yale Repertory Theatre, and other companies are documented in the organization files.

In addition to documentation of her theatrical enterprises, the Lucille Lortel papers also contain material concerning her family and her husband Louis Schweitzer.

Louis Schweitzer's papers include some correspondence, clippings, and a few documents relating to his work with the Vera Institute of Justice. There is also material on Lortel's mother, Anna Wayo Wadler, her brothers, Seymour Wadler and Waldo Mayo, and her sister Ruth Cugat. Waldo Mayo's files contain programs, clippings, and writings which detail his early career as a violinst in the United States and Europe. Ruth Cugat and her husband, Francisco Coradal Cugat were artists, and some examples of their work can be found in the collection.
