Daly's Theatre was a Broadway theatre at 1221 Broadway and 30th Street. It was built in 1867 and opened that year as Banvard's Museum but changed its name the following year to Wood's Museum and Metropolitan. In 1876 it became the Broadway Theatre, and finally was named Daly's Theatre in 1879 when it was acquired by Augustin Daly. After 1899, it was operated by the Shubert family. The building was demolished in 1920, after serving as a burlesque theatre and cinema.


The theatre was built by John Banvard, who opened it in 1867 as a museum-theatre. Banvard sold the building the following year, and it was renamed for the new owner, Wood, who mounted musical Victorian burlesque and other productions of light musical comedy. Banvard regained control of the theatre in 1876 and renamed it the Broadway Theatre. Augustin Daly acquired the building in 1879 and renamed it for himself. There, he operated one of the last stock companies in New York City, presenting Edwardian musical comedy and other works. Daly died in 1899 and, for a time, the theatre was operated by the Shubert family. After 1912 it was operated as a burlesque house.[1] For the last few years before it was demolished in 1920, it was used as a cinema.[2]

The theatre's longest-running show was "'Twixt Axe and Crown", by Tom Taylor, which ran (together with other pieces) for over 10,000 performances beginning in 1870.[1][3]

Dion Boucicault's last play, A Tale of a Coat, opened at Daly's on 14 August 1890.[4]
