Citywide Festival Celebrates Noël Coward in New York

April 2, 2012 - Star Quality: The World of Noël Coward, a major exhibition focusing on the playwright, composer, actor and international celebrity, is now on display at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. Noël Coward is widely known as the creator of a number of stage classics such as Private Lives, Blithe Spirit, Hay Fever and Design for Living and as the composer of songs such as “I’ll See You Again,” “Mad About the Boy” and “Mad Dogs and Englishmen.”

Star Quality: The World of Noël Coward is the most comprehensive exhibition on Noël Coward ever assembled, including unique material from the collections of The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. This exhibition features photographs, posters, programs, scripts, costumes, personal effects, memorabilia, and other objects, many previously unseen, as well as rare audio and video components and covers all aspects of his life and work including his relationship with Hollywood, his work as a spy during the World War II, his worldwide celebrity status, and an extensive section on his life-long love of New York, which began in 1921.

Throughout the spring there will be readings, cabaret performances, productions and discussions around the City. The World of Noël Coward runs through August 18, 2012 in the Donald and Mary Oenslager Gallery, The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center.
