A big time congrats are in order to the man with THE voice, James Earl Jones! Broadway is officially renaming a New York City theater Monday for the acting legend. A new marquee is being unveiled at the formal dedication ceremony for the renaming of the Cort Theater to the James Earl Jones Theater. It comes after a 47-million-dollar restoration and expansion of the 110-year-old building on West 48th Street. James Earl Jones made his Broadway debut at the theater back in 1958.
