Al Hirschfeld Theatre (1924-Present)

G. Albert Lansburgh, architect. Built by vaudeville promoter Martin Beck, who managed it until his death in 1940. In 1968, the Martin Beck Estate sold the theatre to Jujamcyn. In 2003, it was renamed the Al Hirschfeld in honor of the caricaturist-cartoonist who had chronicled live theatre for seventy-five years. His hundredth birthday was the date chosen to change the name but, sadly, he did not live to see the theatre renamed.
