About the New Amsterdam Theatre

When it opened in 1903, the New Amsterdam Theatre was the largest on Broadway. Originally owned by production team Klaw and Erlanger, the theater changed hands a number of times during the 20th century and was a movie house for around 40 years. The Disney Theatrical Company has been the leaseholder since the 1990s.

The theater is instantly recognizable for its quirky, 11-story silhouette, and inside it remains unique. A beautiful painted arch with light green accents is still visible even now, and the stage was one of the largest of its time – making it a fitting choice for the Disney Theatrical Company, who hired architect Hugh Hardy to restore the venue in the 1990s.

The New Amsterdam Theatre opened with A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1903), followed over the years by various Ziegfeld Follies revues which showcased contemporary talents. Since reopening in 1997, it has been home to a number of hit Disney productions including its longest-running show, The Lion King (1997-2006) which now runs at the Minskoff Theatre; and Aladdin, which has been playing since 2014.
