Cort Theatre

Cort Theatre

History

The Cort Theatre in New York City is one of the most treasured entertainment venues in the country. It is located on Broadway in the district of midtown Manhattan, and first opened its doors in the early 1900s. It was one of the first legitimate theaters to be built on Broadway. Famed architect Thomas W. Lamb was commissioned to build the venue. He chose to model the front façade after the Petit Trianon in Versailles. The arch of the proscenium stage consists of perforated plaster that contains treated art glass. The glass was designed to be lit from behind during performances. This grand arch still exists in the theater today, although it can no longer be lit. The first performance, which starred Laurette Taylor was a huge hit. The play, Peg o' My Heart, ran for 603 performances and put the theater on the map.

The theater has become a hot spot for some of the most famous works in musical history. The theater's first big show was Peg o' My Heart, but there were several notable performances over the years that helped put the theater on the map. Productions such as Uncle Vanya, The Diary of Anne Frank, Once Upon a Mattress, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, An American Daughter and You're Welcome America: A Final Night with George W. Bush, have all graced the stage of the Cort Theatre.

Today, the theater is still drawing fans by the thousands to see these classic and one-of-a-kind productions. In the coming months, the theater will host productions of No Mans Land and Waiting for Godot. Don't miss your chance to see these shows and future performances.
