Built by Walter C. Jordan, the theatre officially opened as the National Theatre on 1st September 1921. Ownership of the theatre has changed hands several times over the years - from the Shubert Organization until 1956 to Harry Fomkes to Billy Rose in 1959 (who renamed the theatre after himself) - until the Nederlander Organization purchased the property in 1979. It was then briefly known as the Trafalgar Theatre until it was renamed after the founder of the Nederlander Organization David T. Nederlander in 1980. It has been reported that the theatre was originally constructed as a carpenter's shop in 1920 and was only converted into a theatre the following year.
