Broadway Games: Theatre Names

Last week's true/false game question about Broadway theaters named after composers (see below) is the impetus for this week's game. How well do you know the names of the 41 Broadway houses?

Broadway Games:

These questions/descriptions refer to the current names of theaters on Broadway. All 41 are not represented. Good luck!

2. This "new" theater is named after a theater that was once on the same spot.

3. Two theaters are named for theater critics. They are?

4. How many theaters are named for playwrights and who are they?

5. Name any two theaters named for producers.

BONUS: A Broadway theater is specifically named after a London theater. Which one is it?
