Booth Theatre — New York, NY


The Booth Theatre opened in 1913 and was designed by Henry B. Herts as a companion to The Shubert Theatre. It was named after an earlier theater which was named for actor Edwin Booth, who happened to be the brother of John Wilkes Booth.

This intimate auditorium was intended for small dramatic plays or one-man shows. It had one major restoration in 1979 and remains part of the Shubert Organization.
