The Music Box Theatre is a Broadway theatre located in midtown-Manhattan. It has a seating capacity of 860 and is one of the smaller Broadway houses. It was previously co-owned by Berlin's estate and the Shubert Organization, until the Shubert became full owners of the venue in 2007. The design of the building is unlike many other traditional Broadway houses, as it was built to resemble a country manor-style building in a neo-Georgian design.

star 1star 2star 3star 4

Until January 31, 2016

British thesp Tim Pigott-Smith reprises his role as beleaguered Charles Windsor in this Olivier-winning play. Somewhere in the not too distant future, Charles, who has spent more than a lifetime patiently waiting for power as the Prince of Wales, finally ascends the throne. But all is not as the new monarch expected it to be, in this controversial new play from Mike Bartlett.

Shuffle Along

March 14-October 9, 2016

Tony winners Audra McDonald, Billy Porter and Brian Stokes Mitchell star in this behind-the-scenes story of influential musical Shuffle Along. The 1921 show was a huge surprise hit in its day, kickstarting the careers of Josephine Baker and Paul Robeson, and rewriting Broadway's racial rulebook. This show marks McDonald's return to New York after her hugely acclaimed turn in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill.
