Helen Hayes Theatre (1911-1982)

Herts & Tallant, architects. Built by Henry B. Harris and Jesse Lasky in April, 1911. Intended to be a dinner theatre called the Follies-Bergere, complete with tables in the orchestra and boxes, but this policy did not last. By October, the tables were removed and it was renamed the Fulton. Abraham L. Erlanger managed it from 1921 until 1930 (his death). In 1955, it was renamed for the First Lady of the Theatre, Helen Hayes. In 1982, it was torn down (along with five neighboring theatres) to make room for the new Marriott Hotel. The venue was located at 210 W. 46th St., New York, NY and had a seating capacity of 895.
