Nederlander Organization

Nederlander Organization

The name “Nederlander” has been synonymous with great entertainment since 1912. A show business dynasty began when David T. Nederlander, a smart young businessman living in Detroit, Michigan purchased a 99-year lease on the Detroit Opera House. In 1964, his son James M. Nederlander came to New York City and purchased the Palace Theatre on Broadway. His hard work, pioneering spirit and vision enabled him to build one of the largest privately held live entertainment companies in the world.

Currently under the leadership of James L. Nederlander, The Nederlander Organization continues the tradition of operating historic theatres, producing and presenting the best in theatrical and concert events, and innovating new ways to engage future generations of theatergoers.

The Nederlander Organization has built a national network of theatres including nine Broadway venues and theatres across the country. Nederlander has been a prolific producer of theatrical productions, credited with over 100 productions.
