It was built in 1890 by Edward Harrigan and known as The Harrigan Theatre until 1895, when Richard Mansfield took over management. Charles Frohman assumed control in 1896 until his death in 1915. It was purchased by The Shuberts and leased to Otto Kahn, who briefly renamed it The Theatre du Vieux Columbier after an avant-garde French Theatre company. This name lasted only from late 1917 through April 1919 when the Shuberts resumed managerial control, reverting the name to The Garrick Theatre. It transformed into a burlesque house in 1929 and was torn down in 1932.
