Eugene O'Neill Theatre
The Eugene O'Neill Theatre's shows have ranged from family-friendly Annie all the way to uproarious The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, with nearly as wild an ownership ride as well – bought and sold numerous times over its nearly a century lifetime. It was originally the Forrest Theatre, then the Coronet Theatre, and was finally christened the Eugene O'Neill Theatre in 1959. Among the factoids, playwright Neil Simon owned it before selling in 1982 to its current owners.
