LEGENDARY SHOWMAN JOE FRANKLIN HEADS THE 2008 THEATRE MUSEUM AWARDS HONOREES

 

LEGENDARY SHOWMAN JOE FRANKLIN HEADS THE 2008 THEATRE MUSEUM AWARDS HONOREES
October 21, 2008
 

 

American radio and television personality Joe Franklin, who has been entertaining New York audiences for more than half a century, will be the recipient of The Theatre Museum’s Career Achievement Award at its 2008 Awards Gala.

 
Recognizing individuals and/or organizations that have made significant contributions to the life of the theatre, The Theatre Museum will also honor Rick McKay with its Award of Excellence for Theatre History Preservation to an Individual and The Theatre Museum of Repertoire Americana with its Award of Excellence for Theatre History Preservation to an Organization. Five Towns College will receive the Award for Excellence in Theatre Arts Education.  The Awards will be presented on October 21, 2008 at New York’s The Players Club, 16 Gramercy Park South.

 
“The Theatre Museum is proud to have the opportunity to recognize a diverse array of recipients this year,” says museum president Helen Marie Guditis.   “Each, in a uniquely different way, has made a significant contribution to theatre arts and the principles and goals of our organization.”

 
Dubbed "the king of nostalgia," television pioneer Joe Franklin debuted on WJZ-TV (later WABC-TV) in 1951 with one of the medium’s earliest talk shows.  He moved to WOR-TV (later WWOR-TV) in 1962 where he remained a mainstay until 1999.  It is estimated that as host of “The Joe Franklin Show,” he interviewed over 10,000 guests during its 43-year TV run.  He can currently be heard Saturday nights broadcasting on WOR radio's "Memory Lane" (710AM in NYC, 12 midnight) and also is heard daily on Bloomberg Radio's "Lifestyles" segment.

 
An acknowledged authority on silent film and the owner of one of the largest private sheet music collections in the world, Franklin has written 23 books, including Classics of the Silent Screen and his 1995 autobiography Up Late with Joe Franklin. He has appeared as himself in countless films, notably “Ghostbusters” and “Broadway Danny Rose.”

 
Producer/Director/Writer/Cinematographer Rick McKay is the sole owner and proprietor of Second Act Productions.  His hit film, “Broadway: The Golden Age,” has won over 15 film festival awards and landed on 17 Top Ten film lists. McKay, who has won three Telly awards for his television work, has produced episodes for A&E’s “Biography” and produced, directed and shot “Elaine Stritch: At Liberty” for “Egg: The Arts Show.”  Much of this footage was also used to make the HBO documentary of the same name, which won Stritch a 2004 Emmy.  For five seasons McKay was a segment producer on WNET13’s “City Arts” and recently helped to create the opening segment of two Tony Award broadcasts.  McKay is currently finishing his new film “Fay Wray,” a half documentary chronicling Wray’s legendary career in film.

 
Started in 1969, Five Towns College is a community of artists and scholars who specialize in music, media, business, education, theatre, film and the performing arts. This unique place, defined by the talented men and women who form its constituency, boasts nearly 40 undergraduate and graduate programs, enrolling approximately 1,200 students.

 
Founded by Dr. Stanley G. Cohen and the late Mrs. Lorraine Kleinman-Cohen in the southwestern corner of Nassau County, a geographic region commonly known as the “Five Towns,” the College was New York’s first institution of higher learning to establish programs in both jazz/commercial music and music business.  Although the College was originally conceived as a “business” college, music quickly became its forté.

 
Officially opened in 1973, the Museum of Repertoire Americana is dedicated to preserving memorabilia and artifacts of early repertoire theatre.  The collection, featuring materials dating from the 1880s through the 1970s, includes numerous painted curtains and scenic pieces, playbills, show cards, advertising sheets, heralds, photographs, programs, correspondence, tour schedules and other original source materials.

 
The Iowa-based Museum features a research library containing thousands of pieces of memorabilia and the largest collection of repertoire scripts in the nation.  The primary focus is on the many traveling companies that performed in opera houses and tents, also known as “under canvas” in the United States.  Additional displays include items encompassing vaudeville, minstrel shows, medicine shows, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” shows, showboats and Chautauqua.

 
Founded in 2003, The Theatre Museum is New York State's first and only chartered, non-profit museum dedicated to the history of theatre. It is a museum-at-large -- presenting exhibitions in collaboration with other cultural institutions. The Museum's programs include community outreach, such as teaching children how to write, direct and stage live theatre, and the annual Theatre Museum Awards for Excellence Ceremony.  Its primary mission is to preserve, protect and perpetuate the legacy of theatre through innovative programming.
