Description
Herbert J. Krapp, architect. Built by the Chanin brothers. After they lost their theatres in 1933, it was rarely used. Michael Myerberg bought it in 1945 and leased it to CBS TV five years later. In 1960, it returned to legit use, reopening as the Brooks Atkinson, named for the New York Times drama critic. The Nederlanders took part interest in 1967 and bought it outright when Myerberg died in 1974.
