Venue Overview

Built alongside the 800-seat Booth Theatre between West 44th and 45th Streets, the Shubert Theatre (or the Sam S. Shubert Memorial Theatre) was named to commemorate producers and owners Lee and J.J. Shubert’s late brother.

The venue is almost synonymous with Shubert Alley, a purpose-built walkway between 44th and 45th Streets which some consider the heart of Broadway. It shares a clean, bright exterior with the Booth Theatre, and the interior is decorated with distinctive painted panels around the Boxes, proscenium arch and ceiling. Its mid-size auditorium has become well-regarded for its flexibility, and since opening in 1913 has welcomed a varied program of work.

From Love on the Dole (1936) and Ivanov (starring John Gielgud and Vivien Leigh, 1966) to Kiss Me Kate (1948) and Barbara Streisand’s Broadway debut, I Can Get It for You Wholesale (1962), the Shubert Theatre has proven itself a versatile and popular venue. Since 2000, it’s boasted a roster of crowd-pleasing hits including Gypsy (2003), Spamalot (2005) and Matilda the Musical (2013-2017).

Seating

With a capacity of 1,502 including 26 standing spaces, the Shubert Theatre seating chart comprises three main levels. The ground-floor Orchestra is the largest, with 700 seats across Left, Center, and Right. Views are generally very good here, although the Mezzanine overhang is distracting in the back rows and seats on the far aisle are more restricted. There are some excellent, wide views in the Mezzanine, especially in seats placed more centrally above the stage. The Balcony is mixed, with the front row good for overhead views on a budget. Further back and to the sides, this section’s steep rake, distance and structural support poles affect sight lines.

Tips

• Children under four not permitted in the theater
• Step-free access from the street into wheelchair seating
• There is no wheelchair accessible restroom; theater staff can direct you to alternatives
• The coat check does not accept larger items
• The bar can be expensive; consider setting a budget beforehand

Good value seats

For theatergoers with a set budget, there are a few options for good value seats at the Shubert Theatre. In the Center Orchestra, rows L-N are still close enough to take in some detail, whilst the middle rows E-G in the Center Mezzanine are perfect for a slightly cheaper panoramic angle. In the Balcony, the front row is high but relatively clear, making it an inexpensive good value choice.

Premium seats

The front rows of the Center Orchestra are the most expensive with close and unobstructed views of the stage. Rows A-B of the Center Mezzanine are a bit cheaper, but still premium. Their elevated and expansive sightlines are some of the best views in the Shubert Theatre.

The seat was very comfortable. A little bit of the action on the right side was missed, but not a bad view. More
