Cadillac Winter Garden Theatre History

The Winter Garden Theatre stands on the site of what was once the American Horse Exchange. William Vanderbuilt leased this large property to the Shuberts in 1910, and the theater officially opened the following year. The Winter Garden's opening production was La Belle Paree starring Al Jolson, one of the most famous singers of the era. In 1928, the theater was leased by Warner Brothers and changed to a movie house, but unlike many theaters that suffered this fate during the Depression, the Winter Garden soon regained legitimacy when, in 1933, it reopened with Hold Your Horses. In 1982, the theater was renovated in preparation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber hit Cats. After the feline-themed musical reigned for two decades, it finally ended its record-breaking run, and the Winter Garden Theatre then closed for refurbishing. It reopened in 2001, at which point it was renamed the Cadillac Winter Garden Theatre.

Cadillac Winter Garden Theatre Design

Architect William Albert Swasey designed the Winter Garden Theatre with lattice work walls and a trellised ceiling to look like an outdoor roof garden. The most talked about feature in the original design was the “runway," a bridge built over the orchestra section from the stage to the rear. One of the rare Broadway theaters not initially built by Herbert J. Krapp, the Winter Garden did eventually get a makeover by Krapp in the 1920s when he was brought in to redesign the theater as it now is today. A huge marquee was added and the auditorium was modernized with a lowered ceiling and one hundred new seats that replaced the runway. The runway did make a return appearance, though, sixty years later for the Stephen Sondheim musical Pacific Overtures.
