Conditions Governing Use
Upon its inception, the association performed in Bermuda and then moved back to U.S. theaters including the Fred Miller Theater in Milwaukee, the Folksbiene Playhouse in New York, and the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. For a brief period of time, the association also performed at the Phoenix Theater, at which point the APA-Phoenix partnership began and lasted until 1969.
In 1965, after returning to Ann Arbor, the APA’s production of “You Can’t Take It With You” was brought to Broadway. The success of the Association of Producing Artists included winning the 1961-1962 Vernon Rice Award and a 1968 Tony Award. In 1970, due to the lack of funding, the APA dissolved after its final production of “Private Lives” in the Lyceum Theater.
