Jacobs Theatre

Built in 1927 and originally called the Royale, this venue was renamed in 2005 to honor a long-time industry executive, Bernard B. Jacobs. In 1954, Julie Andrews made her Broadway debut here as Polly in "The Boy Friend." Since then, it has seen varied fare, from "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" to "Frost/Nixon," "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson," and "Once."
