Saturday Palace Hauntings

Saturday Palace Hauntings

The Palace Theatre in New York is said to be home to several ghosts. The building is located on Broadway at West 47th Street and was built in 1913.

During the early part of the 20th century the theatre was one of the world’s most famous vaudeville stages, hosting everyone from Mae West to Fred Astaire. There is theatrical saying “to play the Palace” that means one has finally made the big time.

Vaudeville faded into history but the Palace Theatre still retains its ghosts – over one hundred of them, according to Playbill. There is the cellist, dressed in a white gown; a sad girl who peers from the balcony; a little boy who rolls trucks near the mezzanine; and a man in a brown suit who walks past office doors – to name just a few.

The most famous ghost is said to be that of Judy Garland and she is felt most strongly near a door that was built for her in the rear of the orchestra .
