Designed by Henry B. Herts, the Booth Theatre opened on 16th October 1913 as a a back-to-back pairing with the Shubert Theatre. The first production at the venue was Arnold Bennett's play "The Great Adventure." Named after the actor Edwin Booth (1833-1893), brother to the infamous John Wilkes Booth, the venue was actually the second New York theatre to bear this name. The first was built in 1869 on 23rd Street and 6th Avenue.
