The John Golden Theatre opened in 1927 under its original name, The Theatre Masque. It was one of six theaters built by the Chanin Brothers and was designed by Herbert J. Krapp to house intimate plays. In 1937 it was renamed for the theatrical producer John Golden. The John Golden has since changed hands to The Shubert Organization. The venue has been most successful with small dramatic plays and one-man shows

Story for The Gin Game

Weller Martin (James Earl Jones) and Fonsia Dorsey (Cicely Tyson) meet on the porch of their nursing home and strike up a friendship, with Weller teaching Fonsia how to play gin rummy. As they play, they share stories about the lives they led in the outside world. But when Fonsia wins every hand, Weller becomes increasingly frustrated, until their gin games and conversations become a battleground, with each player exposing the other's failures, disappointments and insecurities.
