About the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre

Built in 1917, the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre was initially christened the Plymouth Theatre. It achieved considerable success with a mixture of musicals and dramas, and in 2005 was given its current name in posthumous tribute to the former chairman of the Shubert Organization.

The venue is another example of the collaboration between the Shubert brothers (who built, owned and operated many Broadway theaters) and architect Herbert J. Krapp. Inside, it is similar to the Shubert and Booth Theatres, with attractive motifs amid a simple white, gold and red color scheme. Its mid-size auditorium is perfect for housing a range of shows.

Notable productions include Hedda Gabler and A Doll’s House (1918), Noel Coward’s Private Lives (1948) and Equus (1974, starring Anthony Hopkins). Since the turn of the century, a number of famous talents have trodden the boards, including Vanessa Redgrave and Philip Seymour Hoffman in Long Day’s Journey into Night (2003), Patrick Stewart in A Life in the Theatre (2010) and Helen Mirren in The Audience (2015).
