Ethel Barrymore Theatre


The Ethel Barrymore Theatre is the only theater left that was built for actors and performers affiliated with Lee and J.J. Shubert. It was created in honor of the tremendously popular actress Ethel Barrymore, who premiered in the production The Kingdom of God.

The theater was designed by Herbert J. Krapp with an exterior in the fashion of Roman public baths and a two-story terracotta grillwork screen.
