Team Owner

Roxy Rothafel

People love to play for him: he always travels first class, always pays top dollar, always sells out the house. He could also successfully promote an ice show on the Equator. Responsible for the construction, the management, and the promotion of the grandest theatrical palaces of the teens and twenties, Rothafel's career reached its apex in Radio City Music Hall. He had put so much of himself into it that, after its gala opening in 1932, he collapsed and was hospitalized for ten days.
