About the Todd Haimes Theatre

The Todd Haimes Theatre was christened the Selwyn Theatre, opening in 1918. Over the years it has operated as a performing arts venue and a B-movie theater, before the New 42nd Street development project and Roundabout Theatre Company kickstarted its return to dramatic use in 2000. Roundabout's other Broadway venues include the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.

The Todd Haimes Theatre may look new from the outside – and it has undergone extensive renovation to make legroom more expansive and sightlines cleaner - but the interior retains some of designer George Keister’s original décor and plasterwork. These combine modern comforts in the Penthouse Lounge with the elegance of classic Broadway, and it has become a highly successful venue for revivals of classic plays and new dramas.

Between 2000 - 2024, it was known as the American Airlines Theatre, after the commercial name of the company that funded its renovation.

Notable productions at the Todd Haimes Theatre since its reopening include revivals of Harold Pinter’s Betrayal (2000, starring Juliette Binoche, Liev Schreiber, and John Slattery), Noel Coward’s Present Laughter (2010) and Arthur Miller’s The Price (2017). Myriad Broadway premiers have graced its stage, covering everything from classic road trips with a twist in Violet (2014) to Shakespearean actresses in Bernhardt/Hamlet (2018).
