Trivia & History

The structure encompasses the space that the Apollo and Lyric occupied. The Apollo was completely demolished and the Lyric was demolished with the exception of its 42nd Street facade, which still stands as part of the new building. Architectural elements from both theatres were incorporated into the new structure.

Originally named for the Ford Motor Company, which put up a significant amount of the construction costs.

Renamed in 2010 for the Foxwoods Resort Casino.
