Sign of times: Aquarius now Chase Theatre

The historic Aquarius Theatre was renamed the Chevy Chase Theatre in preparation for the comedian’s latenight show, which is scheduled to debut Sept. 7.

Chase said Tuesday he was “obviously overwhelmed … having a theater named after me and I haven’t even got a show.”

“The Chevy Chase Show” will be filmed live in the renovated Hollywood theater , which has been returned to the art-deco design it originally had when it was the Earl Carroll Theater in the 1940s.

The landmark was the scene of the long-running musical “Hair” in the 1960s, and most recently has been the home of Ed McMahon’s “Star Search.”
