The Cort Theatre is named after John Cort, founder of the Northwestern Theatrical Association. He commissioned Thomas W. Lamb to design the theatre which would mirror the Petit Trianon in Versailles. It officially opened on 20th December 1912 with "Peg o' My Heart" starring Laurette Taylor. The Shuberts acquired the theatre in 1927, two years before Cortís death. It has always been used as a traditional theatre except for the years from 1969 to 1972 when it became a television studio with the broadcast of "The Merv Griffin Show."
