History of the Nederlander Theatre

At the end of Rent's long run in 2008, the theater underwent renovations, reopening in 2009 with Guys and Dolls. During the restoration, records were discovered indicating that the venue was built as a carpenter's shop in 1920. This makes the Nederlander one of a handful of Broadway venues not originally built as a theater—the others include the Winter Garden, which was originally the American Horse Exchange.
