Macbeth recorded

Missed Macbeth? The New York Public Library recorded the play for their Theatre on Film and Tape archives and limited access will be available. This is the same collection as the vids of The Real Thing and the Neil Simon benefit.

The Public Theater / New York Shakespeare Festival production of Macbeth starring Liev Schreiber and Jennifer Ehle was videotaped by the Theatre on Film and Tape Archive (TOFT) on July 13*, 2006 at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park.

1) The videorecording will be available for viewing after July 26, 2006 at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, by qualified researchers. If you would like to arrange an appointment to view this production, please call our screening room directly at (212) 870-1642, and we will be glad to assist you. Our hours are Tuesdays through Fridays 12 PM to 6 PM and Saturday by appointment only from 1 PM to 6 PM. We have walk-in slots available first come, first served on weekdays beginning when we open at 12 PM. If you have any further questions regarding our holdings, please email us at

2) TOFT is a restricted archive and in order to view a tape, you must be working on specific professional or scholarly research. The Archive is available for use by theatre professionals, students, scholars, journalists, and other researchers with a valid reason to view a particular title. The videotapes must be viewed on-site, in our screening room at Lincoln Center. We do not lend, copy, sell, or distribute any of the videotapes physically or electronically in accordance with our contracts with the various theatre unions and guilds that allow us to tape live theatrical productions.

Researchers are required to have an ACCESS card to use materials on the third floor of The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, where TOFT is located. To learn more about the ACCESS card and apply online, please visit and click on the "Access Card" icon. When you visit the Library, Copy Services, also located on the third floor, will process your card.
