New Amsterdam Theatre

   The beautiful Broadway theatre fronting on 42nd Street, designed by Henry Herts and Hugh Tallant for Klaw & Erlanger, opened on 26 October 1903 with a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. The gorgeous art nouveau décor of the interior was meticulously restored in 1995-1997. One of the first theatres constructed with steel framing, it was housed in an 11-story office building. A second performance space in the structure was the Aerial Gardens, an enclosed rooftop café and theatre reached by elevator from its main-floor lobby; it opened on 6 June 1904.
