Get Directions The Booth Theatre
Lee Shubert built the Booth Theatre in partnership with the producer Winthrop Ames. Named for the actor Edwin Booth (1833-1893), brother to the infamous John Wilkes Booth, the venue was actually the second New York theatre to bear this name. The first was built by Booth himself in 1869 on 23rd Street and 6th Avenue. Amesís father had been devoted to preserving the actorís legacy, so Winthropís decision to name this theatre after Booth honored not only the actor, but connected his own familyís interest with the actorís rich theatrical history. Ames intended to present the most challenging and prestigious productions possible here.
