HISTORY: The theatre first opened as the Guild Theatre in 1925 with a revival of George Bernard Shaw's Caesar and Cleopatra. The theatre was leased to WOR-Mutual Radio as a studio in 1943, and then purchased in 1950 by The American National Theater and Academy and renamed the ANTA Theatre. In 1981, the theatre was purchased by Jujamcyn Theaters and named the Virginia Theatre for owner and Jujamcyn Board member Virginia McKnight Binger. In 2005, just days after playwright August Wilson's death, the theatre was renamed in his honor. Learn More in Theatre Stories
