St. James Theatre History

The St. James Theatre was built by Broadway booking agent Abraham Erlanger in 1927 and was opened as the Erlanger Theatre. His finances later collapsed and he lost the theater. Lodewick Vroom became the manager and renamed the theatre for the well known London St. James playhouse. In 1941 the Shuberts leased the theatre, however, they later lost the theatre as part of an antitrust settlement. Jujamcyn Organization took over and renovated the theatre and in 1987 it was granted landmark status.

St. James Theatre Design

The St. James Theatre, originally called the Erlanger, was designed by Architects Warren and Wetmore with interiors by John Singraldi. When it opened it was the least ornate of all the theatres in Times Square. With a large capacity auditorium it was built for the production of musicals. The interior design is Georgian, as well as the outside façade, which was grey stucco. In 1958 interior designer Frederick Fox did a total renovation making it into one of the most beautiful theatres in America.
