Performance History

From ChatGPT

The Shubert Theatre is a historic theater located in New Haven, Connecticut, USA. It was originally opened in 1914 as the New Haven Theatre and was later renamed the Shubert Theatre in honor of its founders, the Shubert brothers. The theater has a long and storied history, having hosted a wide range of performers and events over the years, including vaudeville shows, Broadway productions, and concerts. Notable performers who have appeared at the Shubert Theatre include Katharine Hepburn, Marlon Brando, Ethel Merman, and Lucille Ball, as well as more recent acts like Lin-Manuel Miranda and the cast of "Hamilton." In addition to its role as a performance venue, the Shubert Theatre has also played an important role in the development of American theater. It was one of the first theaters in the country to adopt the "tryout" system, in which productions are tested and refined before being sent to Broadway. This system helped to establish New Haven as an important center for theater development and innovation.}
