Hudson Theater, Millennium Broadway Hotel, NY

The Hudson Theatre was built by Henry B. Harris, an up and coming producer who later perished aboard the ill-fated RMS Titanic. The theatre was then managed by Harris’ wife, Irene Harris, the last known Titanic survivor to be rescued in a lifeboat. With over 90 plays performed on the Hudson Theatre stage in 20 years, it was known as one of the finest playhouses in the city. One such play, Hot Chocolates in 1929 introduced the world to Louis Armstrong.

In the 1950’s, the Hudson Theatre was home to NBC’s The Tonight Show with Steve Allen as host. During this time, legends such as Bob Hope, Elvis Presley, Ernie Kovacs, Milton Berle, Sammy Davis Jr., Barbara Streisand and Vincent Price graced the theatre’s stage. The long-running daytime game show, The Price is Right also made its debut at the Hudson Theatre.

The Hudson Theatre is truly a spectacular setting for meetings, weddings and special events. This meticulously restored theater in New York City encompasses everything that a 1903 Broadway landmark should–elegance, character and star quality. Read more…
