Second Stage at the Helen Hayes Theatre

In April 2015, the Helen Hayes Theatre was officially bought by Second Stage Theatre, making it one of only four not-for-profit theatres on Broadway and finally giving the acclaimed Off-Broadway company as permanent home in mid-town Manhattan. The last show to run here was the hugely successful rock musical, Rock of Ages, which closed in early 2015. Second Stage will start work on renovations in 2016, with the first shows expected to run in the 2017/18 season.

Dames at Sea

Until January 3, 2016

Dames at Sea will return to Broadway in 2015 after a fifty year hiatus! Directed and choreographed by Tony-nominated choreographer Randy Skinner, the musical is a tap-happy, navy-crazy feast of song, dance and incredible costumes - all the ingredients which made the golden era of movie musicals so gosh darn special!

The Humans

Opens January 23, 2016

Written as single 90-minute scene, this play explores the gnawing anxieties that beset Pennsylvania family The Blakes as they sit down for Thanksgiving dinner. Directed by two-time Tony winner Joe Mantello (An Act of God), The Humans transfers to Broadway after its rapturously New York debut last year.
