The Shubert brothers, Sam, Lee and Jacob J. moved from Syracuse, New York to New York City and immediately began buying up some of the city's theatre space and turned them around to start producing shows. They would go on to build many of Broadway's most important theatres - including the Imperial. By the mid-1920s, the brothers owned or at least managed over 1,000 houses across the U.S.The Shuberts - America's oldest professional theatre company - founded the Imperial Theatre as a replacement for the 20 year old Lyric Theatre to host musical productions. This would be their 50th New York venue, and was designed by Herbert Krapp. Krapp's design seats up to 1,417 theater enthusiasts under a recessed ceiling and elaborately decorated ornamental panels. It opened on December 25, 1923 with its first production, Mary Jane McKane. The West End musical Billy Elliot won ten Tony Awards and earned the box office record for the Theatre in 2010. The stage continued to host some of the most famous composers and musicals after its opening.
