After several years of presenting live performances, the playhouse was relocated to its current site by the Hartwig family. The Hartwig’s opened the modern-day Ogunquit Playhouse on July 17, 1937. It was a state-of-the-art theater and rivaled the playhouses of major cities.

John Lane – Theater Visionary

John Lake was hired as General Manager of the Ogunquit Playhouse in 1950 and eventually teamed with a business partner, Henry Weller. Lane and Weller began modernizing and improving the building and grounds. The Playhouse continued to grow and attract more audiences and some of the brightest stars from Broadway. Without the vision and dedication of John Lane the Ogunquit Playhouse would not be what it is today.
