The New Amsterdam Theater is one of the oldest surviving theaters on Broadway, along with the New Victory, Lyceum and Hudson theatres. In 1903 the first production, of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, opened the New Amsterdam Theater. In 1937 the theater was converted to a movie house but the Nederlander Organization purchased the venue in 1982. In 1992 New York State purchased the theater and sold it to Walt Disney Co. The theater was reconstructed in from 1995-1997 and reopened as a legitimate venue that year,
