Theaters to Visit in Broadway
Catch a show at one of the most storied Broadway venues in New York. This historic Beaux-Arts playhouse dates back to 1903, with charming period details like fluted limestone columns, twin grand staircases, and breathtaking marble mosaics. Broadway’s oldest continuously operating theater, the Lyceum has hosted vaunted productions including The Play That Goes Wrong, Macbeth, and A Christmas Carol, and was a principal filming location for the hit NBC series Smash.
Nestled at the foot of One Astor Plaza, the 1,710-seat Minskoff Theatre first opened its doors in 1973. Since then, its stage has been home to some of Broadway’s most celebrated productions, including The Pirates of Penzance, West Side Story, and Fiddler on the Roof, along with the dazzling stage adaptation of Disney’s The Lion King — the highest-grossing Broadway musical of all time.
One of the oldest surviving Broadway venues, the historic Hudson Theatre dates back to 1902. Designed as a venue for “drawing-room comedies”, the 970-seat theater has functioned as a TV studio, conference center, and adult film cinema, before an extensive restoration and Broadway revival in 2017. It has since played host to electrifying productions including Death of a Salesman, Merrily We Roll Along, and the Stephen Sondheim classic Sunday in the Park with George.
