Herts, Henry B.

(1871-1933)
   The eminent theatre architect was born in New York City and studied abroad. In partnership with Hugh Tallant (1869-1952), Herts developed steel cantilevers to avoid the sight-line problem of pillars to support the balcony. In 1903, Herts and Tallant opened their first two theatres, the New Amsterdam and the new Lyceum. These were followed by the Liberty (1904), the Gaiety (1909), and the Helen Hayes (1911). On his own, Herts designed the Sam S. Shubert, Booth's, and the Longacre Theatres, all opening in 1913.
