The current NYCB Theatre at Westbury made a roaring debut in 1966 when Jack Benny and special guest Wayne Newton performed at the facility’s first event. Since then, the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Tony Bennett and Diana Ross have taken the stage. And this spring, the theater, now owned by LiveNation, will show no signs of aging.
