A Brief History Of Palace Theatre
Located at 1564 West 46th Street, the Palace Theatre is amongst the largest performance venues on Broadway and is generally employed for large musicals and concerts. The Palace Theatre was designed by Milwaukee architects Kirchoff and Rose and funded by Martin Beck, a vaudeville entrepreneur. The theatre opened in 1913 and was headlined by Ed Wynn. While the theatre was used as a vaudevillian house till 1929, it was transformed into a movie theater after a merger with RCA and the Film Booking Office.
In 1965, the theatre was purchased by the Nederlander Organization and a year later, the venue reopened as a playhouse with the premiere of original musical Sweet Charity. Since then, the Palace Theatre has gone on to host many notable productions, including Applause, Oklahoma!, La Cage aux Folles, Beauty and the Beast, West Side Story, Annie, Sunset Boulevard, SpongeBob SquarePants and more.
