False claim from theater's official website[edit]

I've removed the following sentence from the article: "It was the second theatre built by the Shubert Organization, after the Shubert Theatre on Broadway, and its full original name was Sam S. Shubert Theatre." I know this information is from the theater's official website, but the problem is that Sam S. Shubert died in 1905, at which time the Shuberts had already begun building theaters. See the quotes from 1905 newspaper articles about the construction of the Shubert Theatre in Kansas City here:[1] Somebody needs to do some research at some location other than the New Haven theater's website. Maybe one or another of the books about the Shuberts (one was written a few years ago by Foster Hirsch) would be useful- I've been unable to lay my hands on any of them, though.
