About the Music Box Theatre

The Music Box Theatre opened in 1921 through the combined efforts of producer Sam H. Harris and songwriter Irving Berlin, as a venue for The Music Box Revue. After a long history of shared ownership, it joined The Shubert Organization’s portfolio permanently in 2007. Well-loved for its charming Georgian-inspired design (by architect Charles H. Crane), the Music Box Theatre is decorated with columns above the doors outside, and attractive accents bordering the entrance and Boxes inside. It is best known, however, for its intimate and cozy atmosphere which works wonderfully for dramas – although its name nods to its musical origins.

After four years of The Music Box Revue, the Music Box Theatre’s program started to diversify, and shows including Merrily We Roll Along (1934), Pinter’s The Homecoming (1967), Les Liaisons Dangereuses (1987, starring Alan Rickman and Lindsay Duncan) and Blood Brothers (1993) have all spent time in the intimate venue. More recently, the theater has seen a number of successful London transfers, from One Man, Two Guvnors (2012) to King Charles III (2015), and Tony Award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen (2016-2022).
