Q: In Need of Inspiration in Tampa and Surrounding Areas

A: Do you know?

It's a beautiful theater in NYC and is closed. Just look at the detail. It has the distinction of being the oldest surviving Broadway venue (along with the New Amsterdam Theatre), the oldest continuously operating legitimate theatre in New York City, and the first Broadway theatre ever to be granted landmark status (1974). It is one of the few theatres in New York to operate under its original name. Designed by architects Herts & Tallant, the Lyceum was built by impresario Daniel Frohman, whose brother Charles served as manager until his death in 1915. It opened on November 2, 1903 with the play The Proud Prince.Among the prominent performers who appeared on its stage in the theatre's early years were Ethel Barrymore, Billie Burke, Basil Rathbone, Fanny Brice, Walter Huston, Miriam Hopkins, and Cornelia Otis Skinner. A staff of four supervises the rich holdings of the Shubert Archive in Frohman's old office. The old scenery rooms in the 46th Street wing - one at least 25 feet high - hold leather-bound cash books, old orchestrations and librettos and other theater incunabula. Now the Shubert Organization is undertaking a $1 million renovation for a new roof - there are several sections of decaying plaster in Frohman's old office - and masonry repairs on the front.
