The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts will pay tribute to Circle in the Square Theatre, and its co-founders, Ted Mann and Jose Quintero, May 13.

The celebration, which coincides with the centennial of Mann and Quintero, will highlight their legacy with a variety of performers, panelists, and more.

In 1951, Circle in the Square Theatre was founded by Mann and Quintero in an abandoned nightclub in Greenwich Village, becoming a significant force in the mid-century Off-Broadway Movement. The duo, both born in 1924, were both inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame for their contributions to the industry at large.

Participating in the tribute will be David Amram, Gabriela Garcia, Salome Jens, Chandra Lee, Sydney Lemmon, Isabella Pagano, Jai Perez, David Rothenberg, Campbell Scott, Morgan Scott Jack Serio, and Jater Webb. 

The piece will be choreographed by Daniel Fetecua-Soto and Blakely White-McGuire. Performers will be accompanied by Adam Amram and Lynn Fusco.
