The Theatre Museum is the first and only chartered non-profit museum dedicated to the history of theatre. Founded in 2003, The Theatre Museum is New York State's first and only chartered, non-profit museum dedicated to the history of theatre. The primary mission of The Theatre Museum is to preserve, protect and perpetuate the legacy of theatre though innovative programming, exhibits, and presentations. It is a museum-at-large -- presenting exhibitions in collaboration with other cultural institutions. The Museum's programs include the annual Theatre Museum Awards for Excellence Gala and community outreach and education in theatre arts and history.
Tory Burch is an attainable, luxury, lifestyle brand defined by classic American sportswear with an eclectic sensibility, which embodies the personal style and spirit of its co-founder and creative director, Tory Burch. Perceiving a void in the market for a sophisticated American aesthetic at an accessible price point, Tory created stylish yet wearable clothing and accessories for women of all ages.
