The Shubert Theatre was a 2,100-seat show house that opened in 1972 at 2020 Avenue of the Stars, Century City, California. The theatre was demolished in October 2002 to make way for the 2000 Avenue of the Stars office building. The Shubert opened with a production of Follies that was directed by Harold Prince and Michael Bennett on July 22, 1972. Other major Broadway productions included A Chorus Line, Les Miserables, Cats, Evita, Dreamgirls, Ragtime, and Beauty and the Beast and also hosted the Miss Universe 1990 pageant.
Eleven months before its demolition, the theatre served as a one-off venue for the 2001 Primetime Emmy Awards when the event lost its originally scheduled venue, the Shrine Auditorium, due to being postponed following the September 11 attacks. It had previously hosted the awards in 1973 and 1976.
