Photo Flashback: The American Airlines Theatre Turns 100!

Happy 100th birthday, American Airlines Theatre!

Roundabout's flagship home on Broadway, the American Airlines Theatre first opened its doors as the Selwyn Theatre in 1918. In 2000, Roundabout restored the theatre to its original neo-renaissance style as part of the 42nd Street Development Project, thanks to generous support from the City of New York. Through an unprecedented partnership between Roundabout and American Airlines, this historic theatre remains one of Broadway's most exquisite and patron-friendly houses.

Below, we remember the 55 shows that the theatre has been home to since 2000! How many have you seen?
