Originally opened in 1921 as the Ritz Theatre after just 66 days of construction (which is crazy!), the architect was once again Herbert Krapp, who designed many of the theaters that still exist on Broadway today. Though, since 1990, it has borne its present name in honor of the famous theater critic Walter Kerr. Originally, it was the sister theater to The Ambassador Theatre of the Shubert family, who own several theaters on Broadway to this day. It has had an eventful time, having been a radio and TV station over the years and changing hands several times, along with being restored a few times.

The last restoration was probably the most important because it restored the theater to its original 1921 condition. As a result, it has a very special charm and is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful theaters in New York.
