James Earl Jones Theatre


The Cort Theatre was built as a venue for producer John Cort’s productions in the early 1900’s.  Peg o’ My Heart was its premiere performance in 1912.

The Shubert Organization eventually took ownership of the venue and had it completely restored. The theater was renamed in honor of James Earl Jones in 2022.
