Abstract:

Papers of Kermit Bloomgarden, a producer of many award-winning Broadway plays and musicals. Although the amount and type of documentation present varies for each play, the collection includes correspondence, scripts, promotion and reviews, and various kinds of production files. For several titles there are floor plans, elevations, drawings and sketches, costume materials, light plots, property and furniture plots, and prompt books. In addition, legal and business aspects of production are extensively documented by financial statements, budgets, contracts and agreements, tax forms, and royalty statements.

Among the productions treated are "Another Part of the Forest" (1946), "The Autumn Garden" (1951), "The Children's Hour" (1952), "Command Decision" (1947), "The Crucible" (1953), "Death of a Salesman" (1949), "Deep Are the Roots" (1945), "The Diary of Anne Frank" (1955), "Equus" (1974), "Hot L Baltimore" (1973), "The Lark" (1955), "Look Homeward, Angel" (1957), "The Most Happy Fella" (1956), "The Music Man" (1957), "The Shrike" (1952), and "Toys in the Attic" (1960). Prominent correspondents in the files include Jean Anouilh, Leonard Bernstein, Melvyn Douglas, Ketti Frings, Frances Goodrich, Albert Hackett, Julie Harris, Rex Harrison, Lillian Hellman, George Roy Hill, Garson Kanin, Joshua Logan, and Anthony Perkins.

Also present are correspondence, reports, and scripts for plays which Bloomgarden only considered for production, many of which were written by noteworthy playwrights. Personal papers and general business records document Bloomgarden's investments and finances, his work with various theatrical and other organizations, the Kergan Corporation, and Kermit Bloomgarden Productions, Inc. Correspondence with Melina Mercouri, Arthur Miller, and John and Marguerite Sanford is also included.
