Exhibition coincides with Triangle show through Nov. 16

An exhibition in memory of Princeton alumnus and composer Clark Gesner is on display in the main gallery of the Frist Campus Center through Sunday, Nov. 16.

The display, "Happiness Is ... Honoring Clark Gesner '60," honors Gesner, longtime member, supporter and trustee of the Triangle Club , who created the musical, "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown." He died in August 2002. It coincides with the club's 113th annual production, "For Love or Funny," playing at the McCarter Theatre Center Nov. 14-16.

In collaboration with staff from the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library , members of the Triangle Club have assembled materials from Gesner's personal and professional papers, which were donated by his family to the library. The exhibition is curated by Gesner's longtime friend and fellow Triangle trustee William Lockwood, a member of the class of 1959.

It focuses on Gesner's contributions to the Triangle Club as a member and as unofficial archivist of Triangle memorabilia. It also includes historical materials from "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," which was performed on and off Broadway as well as in other countries.

The Triangle Club shows at McCarter will be at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 14-15, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 16. For ticket information, call the box office at (609) 258-2787 or visit the McCarter Web site .
