Opened in 1917, this theatre was intended as a home for the plays of George Broadhurst, who put down his pen in 1924. It has seen Humphrey Bogart in "The Petrified Forest," Abbott & Costello in "The Streets of Paris," and Helen Hayes in "Happy Birthday" (for which she won the first Tony awarded for Outstanding Actress). In October 2006, "Les Miserables" opened here for what was intended to be a 6-month revival - and closed in January 2008. Recently, it has seen stars Bruce Willis and Nathan Lane in "Misery" and "The Front Page," respectively.
