Time Out Says

Some theaters get their names from composers or producers—even from dead drama critics. but the Music Box is named after a specific show. In 1921, producer Sam H. Harris honored a deal he made with hit-maker Irving Berlin and christened his new venue after Berlin's new tuner, The Music Box Revue. Since then, the 1,099-seat house, with an elegant limestone facade, has hosted a variety of musical and dramatic attractions. The 1930s at the Music Box were George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s decade; they premiered several comedies there, and Hart called it a dream theater. In recent seasons, the Music Box was home to August: Osage County.
