The Palace Theatre, renowned since its establishment in 1913, has been a coveted stage for performers, signifying a significant milestone in their careers. Originally a preeminent vaudeville venue, it hosted entertainment legends such as Ethel Barrymore, Harry Houdini, Ethel Merman, and Judy Garland. In 1965, it underwent a transformation by The Nederlanders into a legitimate theatre, presenting acclaimed productions including Sweet Charity and Man of La Mancha. Notable stars like Gwen Verdon, Lauren Bacall, and George Hearn graced its stage. Later housing Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Aida, the Palace Theatre remains a treasured part of The Nederlander Organization’s Broadway theaters, co-owned with Stewart F. Lane. With a seating capacity of 1,740, it continues to shine as a beacon of theatrical excellence.
