Venue Overview

The Eugene O’Neill Theatre opened in 1925 as the Forrest Theatre, part of the Shubert Organization’s portfolio of Broadway venues. After a change of ownership, it was renamed for playwright Eugene O’Neill in 1959. Despite a rocky start from the critics, it is now well loved as a home for mid-size musicals and plays.

Frequent Shubert collaborator Herbert J. Krapp is the architect behind the theater's Georgian design. Although not as elaborate as larger Broadway venues such as the Gershwin or Majestic Theatre, the Eugene O’Neill Theatre has a bright and elegant interior, with subtle patterns and flourishes around the stage and Boxes. Its medium size makes it versatile for a range of productions.

The Eugene O’Neill Theatre found its stride when Arthur Miller’s All My Sons played in 1947 to great acclaim. Almost a decade later A View from the Bridge (1955) would similarly find a home at the venue. Other memorable productions include The Children’s Hour (1952), M. Butterfly (1988) and a new production of Grease! (1991). Since 2000, smash-hit musicals including The Full Monty (2000) and The Book of Mormon (2011-present) have been staged at the theater.

There are around 1,100 seats in the Eugene O’Neill Theatre, spread across the ground-level Orchestra and Mezzanine above. Both are split into Left, Center and Right sections, and there are six Boxes elevated at either side of the auditorium. An excellent view from seat is afforded from the mid front of the Center Orchestra and the front rows of the Center Mezzanine, with views becoming less clean at the far sides, where the angle and some structural features obstruct the view. Sightlines are most distant in the rear of the Mezzanine, where prices are lower than anywhere else in the theater.
