ABOUT THIS THEATRE
Previously known as
New Park Theatre
Originally built for Dion Boucicault but he pulled out before opening. Still, it opened in 1874, only to have its early managers suffer financial embarrassments and the burden of being shut down by the Sheriff on more than one occasion. In 1876, Henry E. Abbey managed it, achieving success by offering appearances by Lotta, a light-comedy star. In 1882, at the height of its success, it burned down.
