About the Theatre:

The Samuel J. Friedman Theatre was designed by Herbert J. Krapp and built by the Chanin brothers as the Biltmore Theatre in 1925. Like many theatres, after it had presented several plays, it changed hands and was used for other purposes: in the early 1930s, it was used by the Federal Theatre's Living Newspaper project; in 1935, it was sold to George Abbott and Warner Brothers; and from 1952 to 1961, CBS leased it and used it as a radio and television studio. In 1961, it returned to full-time legit use, and in 1968, the revolutionary rock musical Hair opened there. The theatre suffered a fire in 1987 and remained empty for years until it was finally bought by the Manhattan Theatre Club in 2001 and restored. Since then, it has predominantly presented plays, including The Rabbit Hole, The Royal Family, and Good People. In 2011 and 2012, it welcomed high-profile productions of Master Class, starring Tyne Daly (Gypsy, TV's Cagney & Lacey), Wit, starring Cynthia Nixon (The Last Night of Ballyhoo, TV's Sex and the City) and The Columnist, starring John Lithgow (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, TV's 3rd Rock from the Sun). The theatre was renamed in 2008 to honor Broadway publicist Samuel J. Friedman.
