Designed by architect Herbert J. Krapp, it was built for the Shuberts as part of a theatre-hotel complex named for 19th century tragedian Edwin Forrest. Eugene O'Neill Theatre opened on November 24, 1925 with the musical Mayflowers as its premiere production. It was renamed the Coronet in 1945 and rechristened the O'Neill in honor of the renowned American playwright in 1959 by then owner Lester Osterman. Eugene O'Neill Theatre later was purchased by playwright Neil Simon, who sold it to Jujamcyn Theaters in 1982.
