HISTORY: Known over the years as the National, the Billy Rose, and the Trafalgar, the David T. Nederlander Theatre stands in honor of the patriarch of the Nederlander Family, now in its third generation as the owners and operators of many of the most distinguished theatres and concert venues throughout America. Built in 1921, some of the best known plays have been presented here including Cyrano de Bergerac, Private Lives, Julius Caesar, King Lear, and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. One of its most distinguished attractions was Lena Horne: The Lady and Her Music, for which she won a special Tony Award. Located near the heart of the Times Square Theatre District, it was the perfect venue for Jonathan Larson's rock opera, Rent, which was inspired by Puccini's La Boheme. To reflect the aura of the East Village, the theatre facade and interior were decorated to resemble a downtown nightclub. The Nederlander Theatre has 1,232 seats and is one of The Nederlander Organizations nine Broadway theatres. Learn More in Theatre Stories
