The Shubert Theatre had its genesis in the New Theatre, an "art" playhouse located on Central Park West that was devoted to serious repertory drama. Although the project was a critical and commercial flop, the New Theatre Group, which included Lee Shubert, leased a plot of land between 44th and 45th street to construct a new venue. The plan was abandoned, but Lee Shubert and Winthrop Ames, a former New Theatre partner, acquired a lease for the site, and built two adjoining playhouses there. Lee and J.J. operated the larger of the two auditoriums, which they named the Sam S. Shubert Memorial Theatre to commemorate their brother, who had died in May 1905. Ames managed the smaller Booth Theatre. Lee chose to build an office/apartment above the theatre, which is now the location of the Shubert Organization's executive offices.

The show is hokey. Bette Midler is worth the price of admission but David Hyde Pierce was equally good

I just can't say enough about this show. Bette Midler is amazing, the production is great, we just enjoyed ourselves so much! Be advised that the views from the very back rows upstairs are a bit limiting, so just know that when you're buying.
