Stage Door Canteen
The Stage Door Canteen was an entertainment venue for for American and Allied servicemen that operated in the Broadway theatre district of New York City throughout World War II. It was opened March 2, 1942, by the American Theatre Wing, and operated seven nights a week in the basement club of the former 44th Street Theatre at 216 West 44th Street in Manhattan. The original Stage Door Canteen inspired a CBS Radio series (1942–45) and a 1943 film. Its popularity led to the establishment of other canteens throughout the United States as well as London and Paris.
