About the Belasco Theatre

Originally named the Stuyvesant Theatre, Belasco Theatre was built in 1907 by David Belasco, who also lived in a Gothic-style apartment above the venue. Aside from rumors of Belasco himself haunting the auditorium, Belasco Theatre has hosted stars including Humphrey Bogart, Janet McTeer and Denzel Washington.

Known for his eccentric tastes and belief in the Little Theater Movement, Belasco commissioned George Keister to design the venue, adding a neo-Georgian frontage for a cozy atmosphere. The Belasco is one of just four Broadway theaters with a neo-Georgian facade; others include the Neil Simon Theatre and Hayes Theater. A 2010 refurbishment makes the most of original décor including Everett Shinn’s stunning murals. Tiffany lampshades and stained-glass ceiling features can also be seen nestled atop columns and amongst carved wood.

Opening with A Grand Army Man starring Tony Awards namesake Antoinette Perry, Belasco Theatre eventually transferred ownership to The Shubert Organization in 1948. Since then, notable productions include Oh Calcutta! (1971), Hamlet (starring Ralph Fiennes, 1995) and Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2014). A revival of Joe Turner’s Come and Gone (2009) even prompted a visit from Barack Obama.
