ArchitectEugene De Rosa

The Vanderbilt Theatre was a New York City Broadway theatre, designed by architect Eugene De Rosa for producer Lyle Andrews. It opened in 1918,[1] located at 148 West 48th Street. The theatre was demolished in 1954.

The 780-seat theatre hosted the long-running musical Irene from 1919 to 1921. In the mid-1920s, several Rodgers and Hart musicals played at the theatre. Andrews lost the theatre during the Great Depression, and in 1931 it was briefly renamed the Tobis to show German films. The experiment was a failure, and the theatre returned to legitimate use. No new shows played at the theatre from 1939 until 1953, as it was used as a radio studio, first by NBC, then by ABC, until 1952. Irving Maidman purchased the theatre and began to produce new shows in 1953, but after only a year, the theatre was demolished - replaced by a 6-story parking garage.[1][2]

  • VU Inside: Mr. Commodore's Makeover
  • VUT Freshman Showcase
  • Lucille Ball


Mr. Commodore has had a lot of great looks through the years. So where does Mr. C go for a makeover? Take a VU inside with Vanderbilt costume designer Alex Sargent-Capps. Well of course as a theater designer I really sort of envisioned this as sequins or sparkles. But Mr. C is more of a classic guy. I like the idea of the tradition of Vanderbilt being highlighted by the costume. But he loves to move. We're going for something that looks like a tailcoat but acts like a dance costume. When she's not rubbing elbows with the Commodore, Sargent-Capps teaches fashion design. And leads the costume shop, bringing Vanderbilt theatre to life. The idea of form and function coming together is really the most important thing in design. Sargent-Capps says her mom ignited her love for fashion. I have been obsessed with sewing since I was about five. My mom's a beautiful seamstress and she used to set her sewing machine up in our formal living room and I would just sit next to her and watch. My whole life, I actually have sort of rather done my craft than anything else. Today she's driven to help students put down their technology and pick up fabric. With a really preponderance and growing nature of student anxiety and stress, if students could get out of their heads and do something with their hands that takes them really out of that technological obsession, they could get fulfillment from doing something that has a tactical nature. She put this theory into practice with this quilt. That's been one of the highlights of all of my teaching. A special design partnership between a next step student and Vanderbilt. I think the idea of not only creating great things for traditional students, but actually creating inclusivity between all different kinds of people can come from crafting and making things. I kind of think it's the great equalizer between different groups of people. Creating feeling, fashion, and fun.
