THE LIBRARY IS OPEN ONLINE! Our physical space remains inaccessible. Library resources and services are available online.
Since 1970, the Theatre on Film and Tape Archive (TOFT) at the New York Public Library of the Performing Arts has preserved live theatrical productions and documented the creative contributions of distinguished artists and legendary figures of the theatre. With the consent and cooperation of the theatrical unions and each production's artistic collaborators, TOFT produces video recordings of Broadway, Off-Broadway, and regional theatre productions as well as dialogues between notable theatre personalities.
Please Be Advised: Limited Walk-ins
Due to class screenings, TOFT will at times be unable to take walk-in appointments. Please call their screening room in advance to confirm availability: (212) 870-1642.
