The Vivian Beaumont Theatre opened on October 21, 1965. It was designed by the famous architect Eero Saarinen and named in honor of Vivian Beaumont Allen, a renowned New York philanthropist. The Beaumont was originally the home of The Repertory Theater of Lincoln Center, which closed in 1973. Joseph Papp’s New York Shakespeare Festival was in residence at the Beaumont from 1973 to 1977. From 1978 to 1985, the Beaumont remained unused when it was not being rented out to outside producers. A new resident company was created in 1979, but it only staged one season in 1980-1981. The Beaumont’s current management (Lincoln Center Theatre) was founded in 1985. The Lincoln Center Theatre has become America’s largest non-profit theatre. It produces plays and musicals all year at the Beaumont and at numerous other NYC theatres.
