Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, New York City

4.3
The Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre is a Broadway theatre, previously known as the Plymouth Theatre, located at 236 West 45th Street (George Abbott Way) in Midtown Manhattan and renamed in 2005 in honor of Gerald Schoenfeld.

Designed by architect Herbert J. Krapp to resemble the neighboring Shubert and Booth theatres designed by Henry B. Herts in Spanish revival style. The building was constructed by the Shubert brothers in 1917-18, christened the Plymouth Theatre, and leased to producer Arthur Hopkins. He intended it to be a venue for legitimate plays starring notable actors such as John and Lionel Barrymore. The premiere production was A Successful Calamity, a comedy with William Gillette and Estelle Winwood.

After Hopkins died in 1948, control of the theatre returned to the Shuberts, who still own the property, which was designated a New York landmark in 1987. The 1,080-seat house was renamed after Gerald Schoenfeld, chairman of the Shubert Organization, in 2005.

  • Saw 'Come From Away'. Very unique. Very heart warming production. They tackled a difficult subject and hit it out of the park. They demonstrated that people are good. I needed that. (Good company too.)
  • Nice theater, not too big so nice views from every seat. Friendly staff. Not much room in the seats- if you are on the larger size try to get an aisle seat. We saw Come From Away- excellent!
