The theatre has gone through a number of name changes. It originally opened as the Guild Theatre in 1925 and went on to be used as a Radio Playhouse (WOR Mutual Radio) from 1943 to 1950. From the 50s onwards, it once again became a theatre and operated under the name of the Anta Playhouse (aka Anta Theatre). In 1981, it was re-christened the Virginia Theatre, before assuming its present name on 16th October 2005 - just two weeks after the death of the American playwright August Wilson.
