In its early days, this house alternated between hosting popular movies and musical revues. The first live show here was the Cole Porter revue "The New Yorkers," starring Jimmy Durante, in 1930. It was renovated extensively in both 1956 and 1986. Beginning in 1991, it was home to the megamusical "Miss Saigon," complete with a helicopter entrance in Act II. It was no less exciting in 2008, when Kristin Chenoweth and Sean Hayes took on the lead roles in "Promises, Promises."
