44th Street Theatre
The 44th Street Theatre was a Broadway theatre located at 216 W. 44th St in New York City from 1912 to 1945. The architect was William A. Swansea. Built by the Shubert Organization, and first named Weber and Fields' Music Hall, the theatre was renamed in 1915 when the comedy duo Weber & Fields split with the Shuberts.
The Nora Bayes Theatre was located on the roof of the 44th Street Theatre and club space in the theatre's basement was operated as the Stage Door Canteen during World War II. The building was demolished in 1945 to make way for an expansion to the New York Times offices and printing plant.
