NYPL Photo Archive: The Magic Show

The following photos come from the photo archive of the New York Public Library, and represent some incredibly rare and unseen photos that haven’t seen the light of day in 35 years. This is it folks, the start of Doug’s Broadway career in crisp and glorious black and white. Taken by photographer Kenn Duncan between 1974-1975, this is a Doug Henning who is clearly enjoying his newfound fame and stardom.

I’ll be posting more over the next week or so. But, a word of warning that these photos are indeed copyrighted by the New York Public Library’s Billy Rose Theater Division. Any unauthorized usage of those for profit or personal promotion is in violation of copyright laws. 

Sorry to be a buzzkill folks. But, it needs to be said more and more these days when posting photos like this on the internet.
