I’m not sure what this has to do with performing arts archives (although I just read the announcement on Theatermania), but the Museum of the City of New York will soon be presenting an exhibition of  original artworks by the late Charles Addams.  Timed to coincide nicely with the opening of the eagerly anticipated Broadway musical, The Addams Family, the MCNY show, Charles Addams’s New York, which will run from March 4 – May 16, 2010, is guaranteed to be a hit.  Which show will last longer though, I wonder?

Also newly opened in New York is the previously mentioned The Jazz Loft Project exhibition at NYPL’s LPA.

That should keep people off the streets for a while.
