In a panel discussion moderated by New York Post Chief Theater Critic Elisabeth Vincentelli, theater fans have a chance to relive moments from some of BAM Theater Company’s 1970s productions with rare photos, footage, and testimony of those who were actually there. The talk occurs as part of BAM’s 150th Anniversary celebration tonight, July 16.
 
Frank Dunlop, who helmed the BAM Theater Company from 1976-78, will be on hand along with fellow cast and crew members actor Austin Pendleton, chorographer Graciela Daniele, and actress RoseMary Harris recounting BAM Theater Company productions including Joseph and the Amazing Color Dream Coat, Waiting for Godot, The Three Sisters, The New York Idea, The Devil's Disciple, and The Play’s the Thing.

Inspired by the idea of a New York City-based repertory theater company, the BAM Theater Company was founded by former President and Executive Producer Harvey Lichtenstein in the fall of 1976, running until 1980. Some notable members of the Company included Blythe Danner, Ellen Burstyn, Barnard Hughes, Tovah Feldshuh, and Margaret Hamilton.
