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. Over the next five decades, David and his sons, James M., Robert, Harry, Joseph and Fred, built and/or managed theatres, produced dozens of live shows and presented hundreds of the top headliners of the day—establishing Detroit as the most successful theatre-town in America.
In 1964, James M. Nederlander moved 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 today.
Now celebrating its 100th anniversary, The Nederlander Organization continues the tradition of operating historic theatre, as well as producing and presenting the best in theatrical entertainment and concert events.
