This major exhibition highlights the life and career of Academy Award-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams.
Taken from the extensive Robin Williams Collection at the Gotlieb Center, the exhibition features rare original material from Williams' illustrious career. The exhibition contains behind-the-scenes photographs, personal correspondence, movie props, hand-corrected draft scripts, awards, magazines, and newspapers from Williams' early stand-up work, to his break-out television role on Mork and Mindy, and to his Academy Award win in the 1997 film Good Will Hunting.
Some highlights of the exhibition include a program book for the inaugural Comic Relief fundraiser; a rough outline of material for a 1982 Robin Williams comedy set; a letter from Waiting for Godot co-star Steve Martin; a letter from the host of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Fred Rogers; photographs of Robin Williams, Shelley Duvall, and Paul L. Smith behind the scenes of Popeye; Robin Williams' notebook featuring ideas and material for his first broadcast in Good Morning, Vietnam; hand-corrected lyrics from the song "Prince Ali" from Disney's Aladdin; and Robin William's Peter Pan costume from Hook.
