Having created poster art for over 300 Broadway and Off Broadway productions, including some of the most memorable designs in theatre history, Frank "Fraver" Verlizzo's indelible mark on the landscape of the American theatre is widely recognized throughout the industry. In 1987, Fraver received a Special Drama Desk Award for "inspired artwork for theatrical productions," an honor never before bestowed in the area of theatrical advertising. Peter Marks, in The New York Times, said of his work, "The images Mr. Verlizzo creates become a part of the production's permanent record. The rest could very well be theatrical history." Fraver's unforgettable designs include the original Broadway productions of Sweeney Todd, Sunday in the Park with George, The Lion King and Ira Levin's Deathtrap.
“Design: Fraver” will be on view through April 30, 2011
