The theatre was a command from the actress Jane Renouardt to the architect Auguste Bluysen. The building is in an Art déco style, while the inner decoration was the work of Armand Rateau.

The building was inaugurated on 30 December 1921 with Une sacrée petite blonde by André Birabeau and Pierre Wolff, followed by the operetta Ta bouche by Yves Mirande and Albert Willemetz, music by Maurice Yvain.

In December 1971, a blaze destroyed the theatre; it reopened its doors in February 1973 with the play Aurélia by Robert Thomas.

Since its opening, the theatre has mainly presented comedies.
