About

The Ethel Barrymore Theatre was built in 1928 and designed by Herbert J. Krapp. It is the only surviving theatre that Lee and J.J. Shubert built for the purpose of staging productions starring an individual artist affiliated with them.

Ethel Barrymore achieved stardom under the management of producer Charles Frohman. The Shuberts offered to build her a theatre and commission a play for her to premiere in her namesake house. The play, The Kingdom of God  opened on December 20, 1928. Other plays she performed there include The Love Duel, Scarlet Sister Mary, The School for Scandal, and An International Incident.
