Project Description

The James Earl Jones Theatre, originally the Cort Theatre, is a Broadway theater in the Theater District of Midtown Manhattan in New York City. It was built in 1912 and designed by architect Thomas W. Lamb for impresario John Cort. The Jones has 1,092 seats across three levels and is operated by the Shubert Organization. Both the facade and interior of the theater are New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission designated landmarks.

Grand Light designed and fabricated numerous custom ceiling lights for the historic theater renovation project. Utilizing our custom components along with custom castings, Grand Light artisans were able to create a timeless piece designed to complement and enhanced the beautiful aesthetics of the auditorium.
