The building was originally built by William Kissam Vanderbilt in 1896 as the American Horse Exchange. However, the Shuberts had it redesigned by William Albert Swasey as a theatre, which officially opened on 10th March 1911 as The Winter Garden Theatre. The inaugural production was the Jerome Kern musical "La Belle Paree." The theatre was completely remodelled by architect Herbert J. Krapp in 1922. Over its lifespan, the venue has also served as a cinema for both Warner Bros. and United Artists and has hosted the famous vaudevile show "Ziegfeld Follies." From May 2002 through to January 2007, it was renamed the Cadillac Winter Garden Theatre due to a sponsorship agreement between the Shubert Organisation and General Motors.
