Built in 1921, this venue was originally known as the National Theatre or the Billy Rose Theatre. It has housed some of the most adventuresome programming on Broadway, including "Winesburg Ohio," "The Threepenny Opera," and "Strange Interlude." For 12 years, the Nederlander was home to "Rent," the show that is credited with bringing musical theatre to the attention of a younger generation, through an exploration of controversial topics. It is also credited with the advent of the Ticket Lottery on Broadway, making low-priced tickets available the day of performance.
