Video Production and Preservation
Productions are recorded during a regular performance with a live audience and are intended to represent as closely as possible a typical performance as seen in the theatre.
In addition to live performances, commercial recordings of theatre-related films, documentaries, or television programs will also be included in this collection.
History of the Follies on Video Archive
Since 2007, the Spectacular Follies (SF) has preserved live our yearly theatrical productions and documented the creative contributions of distinguished artists and legendary figures of our production cast. With the consent and cooperation of the theatrical cast and each production’s artistic collaborators, SF produces video recordings of our regional theatre productions as well as dialogues between notable theatre personalities, cast members and audience reviews.
These recordings will revolutionize theatre research, ensuring that today’s performances will be tomorrow’s legacy, available to future generations for study and inspiration. The Archive is available to theatre professionals, students, or researchers with work or study-related reasons for viewing. Advance appointments are strongly recommended.
