Union Square Theatre


Union Square Theatre
   In 1871, Sheridan Shook, owner of the Union Place Hotel, opened a theatre within the hotel, turning it over to manager A. M. Palmer the following year. Palmer staged a series of successful romantic plays, mostly with French origins, including Agnes, Camille, and The Two Orphans. The glory days of the theatre ended when Palmer passed the management to J. M. Hill in 1883. Destroyed by fire in 1888, the theatre was rebuilt and operated by the B. F. Keith-E. F. Albee vaudeville circuit until 1893, after which it continued as a burlesque and motion picture house.
