Theater Spotlight: North Fork Theatre at Westbury

History Of Long Island's Theater In The Round

In 1956 on an underdeveloped industrial area in Westbury, a tent was raised in hopes of bringing Broadway to Long Island. On June 18,1956 the Music Fair started off its 13 week season.

The first performance was "The King and I" starring Charles Korvin and Constance Carpenter. Nearly ten years after the Music Fair's debut on Long Island, the tent was replaced with a year round fully enclosed theater. "An evening with Jack Benny" was the first of many entertainers to open in the newly renovated theater.

During the late sixties and early seventies the Music Fair's lineup became more diverse. Tony Bennett and Lena Horne were both two performers who entertained at the Music Fair in the early 70's, as well as top pop and rock acts such as The Jackson Five, The Doors, The Who and Jethro Tull. Comedians were also becoming a prominent form of entertainment at the Music Fair. Johnny Carson brought his talents to Westbury in 1971 complete with "The Mighty Carson Art Players."

In February 2005, North Fork Bank acquired the name-in-title rights to Westbury Music Fair in Westbury, NY. One of the nation's most successful and popular theatres now carries the name North Fork Theatre at Westbury.

Today, North Fork Theatre features a full schedule of concerts including favorites such as Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band, The Judds, Bill Cosby and Paul Anka.

North Fork Theatre is owned and operated by Clear Channel Entertainment, the world's largest producer and marketer of live entertainment events. The Music Fair has evolved into one of the top 5 theaters nationwide with 3,000 seats or less (a category which includes Carnegie Hall).

North Fork Theatre at Westbury is located off the Northern State Parkway (Exit 34) and the Long Island Expressway (Exit 40W) on Brush Hollow Road in Westbury, NY.
