Broadhurst Theatre Tours

Broadhurst Theatre
Named after the playwright George H. Broadhurst, the Broadhurst Theatre was built by Broadhurst and the Shubert brothers in 1917 and designed by Herbert J. Krapp for the performance of plays and musicals. See a show at this New York City landmark, which has hosted such hits as Grease, Cabaret, and Kiss of the Spider Woman.
 
The Basics

The Broadhurst Theatre has a capacity of 1,186 seats, with no obstructed views. Take in its exterior, which is similar to the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (formerly Plymouth Theatre) with touches of stone and terracotta trim, on a walking tour of the Theater District. To see the interior decorated with Greek columns, cornices, and friezes, book tickets to a performance.

  • Assistive devices for the hard of hearing and visually impaired are available.

How to Get There
The Broadhurst Theatre is located on West 44th Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues. By subway, take the A, C, or E to 42nd Street – Port Authority Bus Terminal or the 7 to 42nd Street. Or take a bus running along Eighth or Ninth avenues or one headed to Port Authority Bus Terminal.
 
When to Get There

The theater’s box office hours depends on the show, but it is typically open from 10am to 8pm Monday to Saturday, and 12pm to 6pm on Sundays. It’s best to arrive early as there may be lines for the box office or theater concessions. Latecomers are seated at the theater’s discretion.
 
Architecture of the Broadhurst

The Broadhurst Theatre and the neighboring Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (formerly the Plymouth) were Krapp’s first independent commissions, and he designed them to be mirror images of each other from the outside. They were also meant to resemble the style of the neighboring Shubert and Booth theaters, which had been designed by Henry B. Herts, though using more cost-effective brick and terra cotta materials.
