BAM Celebrates 150 Years
With the book BAM: The Complete Works, we get a primer of the incredible cultural institution that is the Brooklyn Academy of Music (which was how it was known until 1973). The lush visuals include images of Bette Davis in her turn on the stage, through the more recent productions by Robert Wilson (a recent Out100 honoree). If you missed Cate Blanchett's star turn in A Streetcar Named Desire, here's your chance to pore over the photos from the production. Essays by many of those involved also help interpret what this international institution has done for the cultural landscape. Here are a few of the highlights of the book, available for purchase here.
