Augustin Daly was burned out of his theatre on 5th Avenue in 1873. He leased a theatre on the corner of Broadway and 28th St. and named it the New Fifth Avenue Theatre, although its location had nothing to do with its name. After Daly vacated, it was leased to a succession of manager. Joseph Haworth appeared there in 1877 supporting John McCullough, and in 1898 co-starring with Helena Modjeska.
