Theater Description:

The Shubert Theatre

HENRY B. HERTS (1871-1933) WAS KNOWN AS A TECHNICAL INNOVATOR AND INVENTIVE DESIGNER. BORN IN NEW YORK, HE WAS THE SON OF HENRY B. HERTS OF THE HERTS BROTHERS FIRM OF DECORATORS. HE ORIGINALLY WENT TO CITY COLLEGE BUT LEFT BEFORE GRADUATION TO WORK IN THE OFFICE OF ARCHITECT BRUCE PRICE.

Herts eventually graduated from Columbia University in 1893 then traveled to Europe to study architecture at the École des Beaux-Arts and the universities of Rome and Heidelberg. Herts is best known for his partnership with Hugh Tallant. Although, Herts & Tallant were well-known theater architects, the partnership dissolved in 1912, and Herts continued designing with his assistant Herbert J. Krapp and on his own. Herts pioneered the use of steel cantilevers to eliminate the problem of blocked sightlines from pillars supporting the balcony. He also served as architect for the Playground Commission of New York City and helped improve fire codes.
