The Beacon Theater, originally opened in 1929 as a movie theater, was designed by Chicago architect Walter W. Ahlschlager. The theater has a seating capacity of 2,894 and has three tiers. During the 1970s, the venue started to host concerts and other music events, and is now one of the leading music and entertainment venues in New York, managed by the Madison Square Garden Company. The 2011 and 2012 Tony Awards, which were broadcast on CBS-TV, were hosted at the Beacon Theater. In 1982, it joined the National Register of Historic Places, and in November 2006 the theatre was added to MSG Entertainment's family of world-class venues.

Jerry Seinfeld

Open Run

Brooklyn-born Jerry Seinfeld takes up residence at the Beacon Theater throughout 2016, playing one show every month. Arguably one of the greatest comedians of his time, Seinfeld has been entertaining audiences with his witty observations of the mundane little wrinkles of life since he stepped up to the mic in 1976.

Anderson Cooper & Andy Cohen

January 27, 2017

Get ready for a night of insider news and gossip from two men who are always at the brink of breaking stories. Anderson Cooper is one of the States most trusted figures when it comes to news reporting, while Andy Cohen's expertise lies in the field of celebrity.

Chris Tucker

January 28, 2017

There is nothing tranquil about comedian/actor Chris Tucker. A limber, wiry fellow with a high-pitched voice and a delivery as fast as a mosquito's wing beats, he seems energy incarnate. Tucker first started out on the LA comedy scene in the Nineties, on the Def Comedy Jam circuit before coming to prominence in films such as his debut, Friday and then the Rush Hour trilogy. Nowadays he is back on the stage following an expensive run-in with the IRS, and his humor draws upon this and his early life, switching seamlessly between different personas.

Jim Jefferies

February 4, 2017

Regarded as one of the fastest rising stars in the comedy world, his shockingly charming style has made him one of the most sought after comics on the world stage. Jim gets away with jokes that most comedians wouldn't touch due to his ability to both charm and offend the crowd in equal measure.
