Built in 1903 by producer and manager David Frohman, the Lyceum is the oldest continually operating theater on Broadway. In 1940, a group of producers including George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, bought the venue, and in 1950, the Shuberts took over the ownership of the theater, and have managed it since. The theater was designed in a Beax-Arts style and still retains this design. With a seating capacity of 950, it is one of the smallest Broadway theaters.

Until February 21, 2016

Arthur Miller's masterpiece arrives on Broadway in 2015 courtesy of London's Young Vic, whose West End staging earlier this year wowed the critics and won three Olivier Awards. Mark Strong heads the cast as Eddie Carbone, the Brooklyn longshoreman whose infatuation with his young niece leads to tragedy.

Fully Committed

April 2-June 5, 2016

A hilarious take-down of New York's foodie elite, Becky Mode's Fully Committed is a full throttle one man comedy, starring Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family). He plays Sam, an out-of-work actor manning the phones at one of the city's swankiest eateries, having to juggle the demands of desperate customers, on edge waiters and egomaniacal chefs.
