Scope and arrangement
The Jules Fisher collection of Jo Mielziner designs includes original drawings and renderings for theater, opera, and ballet productions from the 1920s through the 1960s, primarily in New York City. All are works on paper, with the exception of a three-dimensional model. Most images are set designs, with a few costume designs also represented. The bulk of the collection is finished renderings, although there are some preliminary sketches, and a 3-dimensional illuminated set design.
Among Mielziner's best-known works here are Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Death of a Salesman, The Emperor Jones, Guys and Dolls, Gypsy, and Look Homeward, Angel. Other notable titles include Mr. Gilhooley, Romeo and Juliet, Silk Stockings, That Summer, That Fall, The Lark, The Red General, and Yellow Jack. There is also a design for the AT&T Pavilion's Controlled Ride at the New York World's Fair, 1964-65.
