Abstract:

Documenting the history of the Off-Broadway theater company Circle in the Square and two of its founders, Paul Libin and Theodore Mann, this collection consists of material relating to Circle in the Square's produced works, development material for unproduced works and abandoned projects, correspondence, administrative documents, financial and legal records, personal and office papers belonging to Libin and Mann, photographs, and other material relating to the day-to-day operation of a not-for-profit theatrical company.

The papers of Circle in the Square founder and artistic director, Theodore Mann contain a significant amount of correspondence, illustrating Mann's personal and business relationships with many luminaries of Broadway and Off-Broadway theater, including Elia Kazan, Ring Lardner, Irene Papas, and Thornton Wilder. Mann's--and by extension Circle's-- relationship to the works of Eugene O'Neill is illustrated through correspondence with the Carlotta Monterey O'Neill, the O'Neill estate, Tao House, and with individuals developing books, television, and film projects about the playwright and his works. Mann's work with the State Academic Maly Theater of Russia, where he directed Tennessee Williams' Night of the Iguana in 1989 is also documented. Paul Libin's papers consists of personal and professional correspondence between Libin and various individuals including friends, associates, and such notable public figures as Warner Leroy, Paul Newman, and Joanna Woodward. The collection also contains office files belonging to theatrical producer Kenneth Waissman. Other administrators, including George Elmer (Libin's successor as Managing Director) and literary advisor Seth Goldman, are represented in the collection to a lesser extent. Material belonging or relating to other founding members, such as José Quintero, Emily Stevens, and Leigh Connell, is only superficially present, and this collection should not be considered a comprehensive resource on their careers or their work with Circle in the Square.
