About the Majestic Theatre

Built by the Chanin Brothers in 1927, the Majestic Theatre New York was conceived to house large-scale musicals. It is therefore fitting that it was the home of Broadway’s longest-running show, The Phantom of the Opera.

The Majestic was designed as the largest venue of a three-theater complex. The mid-sized Royale Theatre (now the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre) and smaller Masque Theatre (John Golden Theatre) completed the set. The theater’s ownership was transferred to The Shubert Organization in the 1930s. Architect and designer Herbert J. Krapp was inspired by Spanish architecture when adding terracotta and attractive high-arched windows to the venue, and a Palladium-style motif above the entrance welcomes visitors. Inside, the classic Shubert gold and white features throughout. Kapp was also innovative; he adopted stadium-style seats in the Orchestra well before it became common practice.

Throughout the 20th century, a host of successes graced the Majestic’s stage, from heavyweights John Geilgud and Cary Grant in the 1920s to Robert Preston and Julie Andrews across subsequent decades. Notable shows include The Wiz (1975) and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s run of premieres at the venue including Carousel (1945) and the Tony and Pulitzer-winning South Pacific (1949).

The Majestic Theatre was renovated to welcome The Phantom of the Opera when it first opened in 1988, and Andrew Lloyd Webber's spellbinding musical remained a much-loved and must-see mainstay of the Broadway scene until it closed over 30 years later in April 2023.
