Description by OLDIES.com:

The Hudson Theatre, which opened in 1903, is more than a beautiful facade, much more than a landmark Broadway playhouse with Tiffany glass mosaics and Roman friezes--complete with verde-antique in Greco-Roman marble--all of which were recently and painstakingly restored by Millennium Hotels. With as much drama going on off-stage as beneath its historic proscenium arch, The Hudson has been the theater home for such titanic 20th century actors as George M. Cohan, Ethyl Barrymore, Laurence Olivier, Alfred Lunt and Jason Robards, Jr. As if that weren't enough of a resume, the storied Broadway palace has also played the bigtime as the studio where Jack Paar and Steve Allen did their nationally broadcasted shows. Elvis, Bob Hope, Sammy Davis, Jr. and many others not instantly associated with Broadway have been celebrated Hudson guests as well. Ward Morehouse III, whose family has been identified with the theater for generations, uses the Hudson as a launching pad to write about the golden age of Broadway, live TV and beyond into the new, international age of corporate-theater synergy.
