The Rose Tattoo

September 19 - December 21, 2019

Pulitzer Prize winner Tennessee Williams' powerful mediation on love, marriage, womanhood and their often messy convergence first stunned audiences and critics alike during its four-time Tony-winning run on Broadway in 1951. Subject to multiple revivals over the years, one of the most recent and most notable iterations saw Italian-American Academy Award-winning actress Marissa Tomei make The Rose Tattoo's lead role of Serafina entirely her own during its critically lauded run at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in 2016.

Coming Spring 2021!

Before hip hop blockbuster phenomenon Hamilton ruled the the Broadway roost, another historic musical got the country's patriotic blood pumping! First premiering on the Great White Way in 1969, Peter Stone and Sherman Edward's historical tuner 1776 garnered much critical acclaim as well as three Tony and two Drama Desk Awards for its gripping portrayal of the birth of modern America. Don't miss a Diane Paulus' brand new revival when it returns to Broadway in the Spring of 2021!

Originally known as the Selwyn Theatre, the American Airlines Theatre is a historic Italian Renaissance-style Broadway theater in New York City. The theater was designed by George Keister and built by the Selwyn brothers in 1918. It was used for musicals and drama productions, and was then converted to host film productions. For a short time, it was used as a visitor's center, and then wasn't used for much of the 1900s, until 1997 when it was restored and renovated.
