About the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre

When it opened in 1910, the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre had a very different namesake: Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. With a retractable roof for open-air performances, the venue hosted a variety of plays and musicals until it converted to a movie theater in 1932. In 1958, the Lunt-Fontanne was fully refurbished and named after famous acting couple Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne.

Following its refurbishment, the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre retained little of the Globe’s design. With luxurious lounges and a white, gold and red-toned auditorium, the theater is now classically elegant and well-suited to large musicals. It also boasts photographs from its namesakes’ private collection, which visitors can peruse in the lobbies during the intermission.

Notable performances at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre include Lunt and Fontanne’s 1958 appearance in The Visit, followed by hits such as The Sound of Music (1959), A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1972) and Hello, Dolly! (1978). More recent shows that have charmed audiences range from Finding Neverland (2015) and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2017) to The Addams Family (2010) and Ghost: The Musical (2012).
