Lyceum Theatre, New York, from Robert N. Dennis collection of stereoscopic views. Coverage: 1870?-1895? Stephen A. Schwarzman Building / Photography Collection, Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division of Art, Prints and Photographs.
The Lyceum Theatre operated on Manhattan’s Fourth Avenue (now Park Ave. South) between 23rd and 24th Streets, from 1885 to 1902, when it was torn down to make way for the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Tower and replaced by the Lyceum Theatre on 45th Street. For most of its existence, the theatre was home to Daniel Frohman’s Lyceum Theatre Stock Company, which presented many important plays and actors of the day.
