The John Golden Theatre was formerly known as the Theatre Masque, which opened its doors in 1927. Its creation was the vision of the renowned playwright and producer John Golden, whose name it now bears. The building was designed by architect Herbert J. Krapp, a man renowned for his significant imprint on Broadway’s architectural landscape.

Boasting an architectural style rich in Spanish Renaissance influences, the Golden Theatre blends modern utility with classic aesthetics, offering a vintage charm that is unparalleled. The building’s façade flaunts intricate detailing, while the interior is adorned with ornamental embellishments and crimson accents that exemplify its historical grandeur.
