Jujamcyn Theaters is recognized as a theatrical innovator, championing shows that push the boundaries of Broadway and creating uniquely welcoming experiences for audiences and artists.  Jujamcyn’s five Broadway theatres are the St. James, Al Hirschfeld, August Wilson, Eugene O’Neill and Walter Kerr. Established in 1956 by William McKnight, one of the founders of 3M Corporation, Jujamcyn was named after his grandchildren, Ju(dith), Jam(es) and Cyn(thia). McKnight acquired the St. James and Martin Beck (now the Al Hirschfeld). In 1976, James Binger and his wife Virginia (McKnight’s daughter) took over the company and expanded by acquiring the ANTA (now the August Wilson), the Ritz (now the Walter Kerr) and the Eugene O’Neill. In 1987 Binger brought in Rocco Landesman to run the company as president.

Over the next 17 years, Jujamcyn would produce and house a successful string of Broadway hits, including box office juggernaut The Producers, which won a record 12 Tony Awards® in 2001, and complete award-winning restorations of all five theatres. After Binger’s death in 2004, Landesman purchased the company. Jordan Roth, who had joined the company in 2005 as resident Producer, became President in 2009 and Principal Owner in 2013. Roth ushered in a new era of hospitality as well as hit shows including Into the Woods, Springsteen on Broadway, Hadestown, Moulin Rouge! The Musical, The Book of Mormon and Kinky Boots.
