Lunt-Fontanne Theatre

Opened as the Globe in 1913 to honor London's Shakespearean playhouse, this venue was originally intended as a beaux-arts house for light musicals. It was renovated in 1958 and renamed in honor of the legendary Broadway acting couple Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, who appeared here in Durrenmatt's "The Visit" that same year. It has also seen Adele & Fred Astaire in "Apple Blossoms" and Fanny Brice in "The Ziegfeld Follies." Disney took up residence in the theatre from 1999 to 2009 with productions of "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Little Mermaid."
