The Belasco Theatre originally opened as the Stuyvesant Theatre on October 16, 1907 with a production of A Grand Army Man. The Belasco Theatre was designed by George Keister for impresario David Belasco, who renamed the theatre for himself in 1910.

The first production to be staged under the theatre's new name was The Lily, an adaptation by Belasco of Leroux's Le Lys. In 1931, the theatre was leased to Katherine Cornell, and the Shubert Organization purchased it in 1948. From 1949 to 1953, the building was leased to NBC for broadcasting, before it was once again used as a traditional theatre.

The Belasco, located on 44th St. near the corner of Sixth Avenue, is the easternmost Broadway theatre.
