The Booth Theatre opened on October 16, 1913, as an adjoining venue with the Shubert Theatre. The building was designed by Henry B. Herts, and the first production there was Arnold Bennett's play The Great Adventure.

Named after the actor Edwin Booth, brother to the infamous John Wilkes Booth, the venue was actually the second New York theatre to bear his name. The first was built in 1869 on 23rd Street and Sixth Avenue, but it was demolished in 1965.

The facade and parts of the current Booth's interior have been designated New York City landmarks.
