About

The Bernard B. Jacobs was built by the Shuberts as The Royal Theatre in 1927. It briefly changed hands in the 1930s, when it was used for radio theater. The space was re-acquired by the Shuberts in 1940.


In 2005, it was officially renamed to honor the Shubert Organization's former president Bernard B. Jacobs.
