Originally built as the Theatre Masque in 1927, this venue has also moonlighted as a film set in the films A Chorus Line, as well as providing the backdrop to the shadowy opening scene in the Academy Award-winning All About Eve. One of the smallest of the Broadway theatres, it was acquired from the Chanin brothers in 1937 by theater impresario John Golden who promptly named it after himself. Built in the Moorish style, this theatre is famed for having a good sightline to the stage from all of its 800 seats.

Booking until January 10

Broadway greats James Earl Jones (You Can't Take It with You) and Cicely Tyson (The Trip to Bountiful) reunite for this revival of D.L. Coburn's Pulitzer Prize-winning two-hander. It centers on two caustic nursing home residents, whose weekly gin rummy game takes on an ever deeper meaning.
