ISHERWOOD-Jp-1-articleInlineThe Belasco Theatre is a Broadway theatre that opened in 1907 in Manhattan; it was initially known as the Stuyvesant Theatre, but was renamed for the man it was designed for: playwright, director, and theatrical producer David Belasco. The designer was George Keister, who also designed the Apollo Theater and the Bronx Opera House, among other famous buildings.

The Belasco Theatre is known for its Tiffany lighting and ceiling panels, as well as murals that were done by artist Everett Shinn. The theatre is where Marlon Brando had his first widely recognized success, which has since been known as a moment that helped jump-start his career and move him eventually towards film.
