In the 1940s, the theater became part of the Shubert Organization and was known as the Sam Shubert Theatre. Since the 1990s, it has been owned by Nederlander, which refurbished and restored the building and sells naming rights; it has been named for LaSalle Bank, then Bank of America. The PrivateBank acquired the naming rights in December 2015, later becoming CIBC Bank USA, and in 2017, the theatre's name changed to reflect the new bank ownership.

We saw Hamilton for the second time in two years here. I nice theater and a wonderful show (one of my favorite musicals of all time)!!

Very beautiful theater. Staff is helpful in directing you where to go. I am a large woman and I found the seating to be fairly ample and comfortable. I wasn't having to squeeze myself in too much and I wasn't rubbing my neighbor, though I did sit on the aisle for the extra room.
