Why You’ll Love It

This signature piece of NYC history is one of the few theaters originally built as a movie house in 1924. One of the most notable films that played there during this time was Walt Disney’s Steamboat Willie which introduced American audiences to Mickey Mouse. In the 1930s, its large seating capacity allowed the change into a legitimate Broadway theater, and the rest is pure history. The interior, (designed by architect Eugene DeRosa), was built in the Italian Renaissance style, resurfacing in polished granite when a skyscraper was constructed above the theatre in the 90s. It continues to be one of the largest Broadway Theaters and a marvel to audiences everywhere, hosting shows like South Pacific, Cabaret, Fiddler on the Roof, The Wiz, Evita, Les Miserables, Miss Saigon, and most recently, the Great Gatsby.
