The Players is the former residence of renowned Shakespearean actor Edwin Booth. Designed in the Greek revival style, the mansion’s entrance was re-designed by architect Stanford White, and furnished with Mr. Booth’s personal collection of props, costumes and vast library of theatrical literature, The Booth-Hampden Library. The Clubhouse was turned over to the members on December 31, 1888. That year Booth and 15 other incorporators (including Mark Twain and General William Tecumseh Sherman) founded The Players. Located in a Greek Revival townhouse facing historic Gramercy Park, modeled after London's famed Garrick Club, The Players was the first American club of its kind. Its purpose was “The promotion of social intercourse between members of the dramatic profession and the kindred professions of literature, painting, architecture, sculpture and music, law and medicine, and the patrons of the arts.” Today, men and women from a variety of professions in the arts, business, and commerce enjoy The Players’ unique spirit of conviviality and tradition.
