The Al Hirschfeld Theatre first opened with a production of Madame Pompadour on November 11, 1924. The venue was originally named the Martin Beck Theatre after its proprietor, the vaudeville promoter Martin Beck. The venue was the only theatre in New York at that time to be wholly owned, with no mortgage requirements.

The building was designed by G. Albert Lansburgh and only changed its name to the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on June 21, 2003 in honour of the late Broadway caricaturist, who had died in January of that year. The theatre's current owner and operator, Jujamcyn Theatres, purchased the venue from the Beck family in 1965.
