Neil Simon Theatre History

If you're looking for an iconic Broadway theater loaded with a great history and a steady stream of unbelievable modern shows to boot, you're definitely in the right spot, as Neil Simon Theatre is never exactly lacking in excitement. Neil Simon Theatre, which was at one point called the Alvin Theatre, was originally built all the way back in 1927, when Babe Ruth was swatting home runs into the stands just at the other end of town. Over the decades, Alvin Theatre saw plenty of amazing shows come to the stage, including Cole Porter's Anything Goes, Annie and plenty of others, giving this one a reputation for excellence that few theaters can even come close to capturing.

As everyone knows, this is just one of those places that you need to get to if you're in the New York, NY area, as it has a tradition of bringing one amazing act to the stage after another. Then once it changed its name in the early 1980s, Neil Simon Theatre has become an icon of the local arts scene as it's existed through many decades of major American change, though you can always count on there being world-class entertainers whenever you make it into the stands for a highly anticipated show.

It's not exactly difficult to find entertainment around the New York area, as it's one of the iconic cities not just in the U.S. but for the entire world. One of the very best ways to experience the city is through its variety of big-time sporting events, as Yankee, Knicks and Rangers fans dominate the ink and airwaves around New York for a reason, and it definitely isn't because there is a lack of excitement from season to season and year to year.

But you're way off if you think the thrills stop on the sports field, as the concert scene around New York is also second to none. Neil Simon Theatre is the type of festival that always has fans eagerly counting down the days to the end of the year, as music lovers pour into the music hall to see a great collection of talented musicians as they hit the stage looking to bring the house down in style. As soon as you're there, you'll understand loud and clear what all the excitement is about, as there is still no conjuring up the live music experience from home no matter how hard you try.
