Venue Overview

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.

The Longacre Theatre seating chart comprises 1,077 seats across three levels, with the largest number in the Orchestra. The Orchestra splits into Left, Right and Center, with views best in the middle, a few rows back. The Center Mezzanine layout is perfect for patrons wanting an elevated view, whilst the Balcony provides the most affordable and distant seating, where restrictions caused by safety bars, height and thin pillars can affect sightlines. Boxes are available for side-on, intimate seating, and across all levels seats further to the sides become more obstructed.

• The elevator to the accessible restroom may not accommodate all wheelchairs
• Children under four are not permitted into the theater
• Drinks and snacks at the bar can be expensive; try setting a budget

Longacre Theatre Seating Chart

Good value seats

There are a couple of options for good value seating at the Longacre Theatre. Rows L-N in the Center Orchestra are cheaper than premium. From here, patrons can still take in the details of a play and don’t have to look up at the stage. The middle rows in the Center Mezzanine are also a good value option for elevated sightlines that don’t feel distant.

Premium seats

The best, premium seats are across rows D-L of the Center Mezzanine. Views across this range are clear, intimate and detailed – perfect for admiring subtle acting. In the Mezzanine, rows A and B of the Center are equally sought after, with a price to reflect their desirable elevated position.
