Broadway Theatre and recent home to The House of Blue Leaves & Grey Gardens
he theater was designed by Herbert J. Krapp and built as the Ritz Theatre in 1921 by the Shubert family. It operated as a radio and then television studio between 1943 and 1965, and remained vacant from 1965 to 1971, when it reopened with the musical Soon, book by Martin Duberman, which closed after three performances. Although it housed a number of productions in the next two years, it remained dark from 1973 to 1983. The last production to staged at the Ritz was Chu Chem. After it closed, Jujamcyn hired EverGreene Architectural Arts to renovate the interior. In 1990 it reopened, now renamed for theatre critic Walter Kerr.
