Charlie Cinnamon: Legendary Press Agent
Jewish Museum of Florida, Miami Beach
June 19 to Sept. 16, 2018
IN THIS RETROSPECTIVE exhibition of the extraordinary career of Charlie Cinnamon, “preeminent theatrical press agent” to the stars, we are regaled by a collaborative tribute to his legacy in a collection of memorabilia garnered by his friends, Broadway director Richard Jay-Alexander and photographer Manny Hernandez, along with members of the Cinnamon family. Without a doubt, the “legendary” press agent Charlie Cinnamon, PR executive extraordinaire, “grand sage of publicity,” “best cultural ambassador,” would have been embarrassed by the hagiographic gushing of his friends and colleagues. Except that it’s all true.
