About the Longacre Theatre

The Longacre Theatre opened in 1912, named after Longacre Square, now known as Times Square. From 1943, it was leased as a television and radio studio, before returning to its roots in 1953 with Dorothy Parker’s The Ladies of the Corridor. In recent years, the Longacre Theatre has seen a number of successful shows including Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf (2005) and A Bronx Tale (2016).

Henry B. Herts, a frequent collaborator of the Shubert Organization, designed the Longacre Theatre using French Neo-classical styles on the exterior and Beaux Arts influences inside. It was the first Broadway theater he designed alone; previous efforts with Hugh Tallant include the Lyceum Theatre. The auditorium is simple and elegant, using the classic Shubert gold and white color scheme. Between 2007-2008, an expensive restoration project was overseen by architect Michael Kostow. During this time, the theater was updated slightly to improve sightlines and amenities for guests.

Notable productions at the Longacre Theatre include Clark Gable in Hawk Island (1929), Pinter’s No Man’s Land (starring John Gielgud, 1976), Ain’t Misbehaving (1978) and Diana Rigg in Medea (1994). More recently, the venue has hosted Mike Tyson’s one-man show in 2012, and a revival of the award-winning You Can’t Take It With You in 2014.
