About Winter Garden Theatre
Constructed in 1896, the Winter Garden Theatre officially opened in 1911 with the production of Vera Violetta and has since become home to many iconic Broadway productions. Twelve years after the theatre opened, Herbert J. Krapp completed a major renovation of the interior to bring in an Adamesque style, like other Shubert Organization theatres. In 2001, after Cats closed, architect Francesca Russo restored the theatre to its Twenties’ splendour.
