Schneider said: "We are so honored that all aspects of The Al Hirschfeld's rich storytelling history will be represented at this theatrical homecoming. It is our feeling that our theaters should be celebrated in the same way we celebrate national landmarks; taking a moment to recognize the great moments that have happened in one location makes us appreciate their worth even more."
