More than 100 years old, New York’s storied Apollo Theatre was known world-wide for its jazz performance. Previously a whites-only burlesque hall, it opened its doors to blacks when it became the Apollo in 1934. Although no longer primarily a jazz venue, its 1,500 seats are frequently filled with a full range of popular music of today. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, it is visited by more than a million people annually.
Inspiration: I wanted to include some older venues in this exhibit. Reference photos came from various websites.
