The Broadhurst Theatre, located in Midtown Manhattan, has a rich past. Owned by The Shubert Organization, the theater was designed by Herbert J. Krapp, a theater designer who collaborated with the Shuberts on multiple venues. The Broadhurst Theatre opened on Sept. 27, 1917, and since then, it has hosted plays and musicals such as Anastasia, Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, Into the Woods, Mamma Mia and Les MisŽrables. Its exterior is identical to the Plymouth Theatre, but the interior features columns and Greek-inspired influences, such as stone and terra cotta trim. Located at 235 W. 44th Street, the theater resembles both the Shubert and the Booth theaters. Since its opening, the Broadhurst Theatre has been one of the organization's most-booked theaters, constantly bringing a range of shows to Broadway.
