Jujamcyn Theaters celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the historic Walter Kerr Theatre, with a just-released interactive timeline. A definitive history of the building, the timelime features a century’s worth of history, from the earliest shows, musicals, and revues, through its history as a television and radio studio, brief spans as an adult film theater and later a children’s theater, and finally as one of the most beloved houses on Broadway.

The timeline features a lovingly curated collection of seldom seen ephemera including old production photos, Playbill covers, sheet music and press clippings.

In addition, many of the people who have made the Walter Kerr their home over the last century have contributed memories of their time at the Kerr. Contributors include Stephanie J. Block, Crystal Dickinson, Tovah Feldshuh, Lewis Flinn, John Earl Jelks, Cherry Jones, Kenny Leon, Adriane Lenox, Andrew Lippa, Omar Metwally, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Jeremy Shamos, Jason Tam, Frederick Weller and more.
