It was designed by Alexander Saeltzer and opened in 1866 as the Theatre Francais, as a home for French language dramas and opera.The theatre was renamed the Lyceum in 1871. In 1879, it was taken over by producer J.H. Haverly who renamed it Haverly's 14th Street Theatre. By the mid-1880s, it had become simply the Fourteenth Street Theatre.By the mid 1910s it was being used as a movie theatre, until actress Eva Le Gallienne turned it into the Civic Repertory Theatre in 1926. She mounted 34 successful productions, but the Great Depression ended that venture in 1934.The building was demolished in 1938.
