The Richard Rodgers Theatre was designed by Herbert Krapp, the most famous architect of Broadway theaters of his time, and opened in 1925 under the name Chanin 46th Street Theatre. Construction mogul Irwin S. Chanin had it built and had the wonderful idea of democratizing theater attendance. That is, no matter who paid how much for tickets, everyone came through the same door and used the same lobby; the goal was to make theater attendance affordable for the masses as well.

The interior of the theater was richly decorated and borrowed from the opulent design of the Renaissance. In 1990, it was purchased by the Nederlander Organization and renamed the Richard Rodgers Theatre after Richard Rodgers, who was one of the greatest composers of his time.
