CBS Studio No. 51


109 W. 39th St., New York, NY
Seats (approximate): 935

Marshall & Fox, architects. Lee Shubert sold actress Maxine Elliott the land for this theatre in exchange for fifty-percent interest in it--making Elliott one of the only female managers. Leased to the Federal Theatre in 1936. In 1941, it became a radio station and, later, a television studio. In 1956, Elliott's heirs sold her share to the Shuberts, who then sold the property. When it was demolished in 1960, the theatre, built in a thriving theatre district, was the only Broadway house below 41st St.

Built: 1908    Closed: 1941    Demolished: 1960
