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.

Lobby Hero

Opens March 1, 2018

Captain America himself Chris Evans makes his Broadway debut in comedy drama Lobby Hero, alongside Michael cera. Written by Oscar winner Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester by the Sea), this play examines the strain four characters loyalties are placed under when they become involved in a murder case.

Straight White Men

Opens July 3, 2018

Obie Award-winning playwright Young Jean Lee returns in 2018 at Broadway's Helen Hayes' Theatre, with her searing black comedy that won over critics both Off-Broadway in 2016, and at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater. Peeling back social privilege and personal identity, Jean Lee's surprisingly conventional play marks a stark departure from her more eclectic efforts such as Church and We're Gonna Die, winning broad praise from critics across the Big Apple.
