The Waverly Gallery

Until January 27, 2019

A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize back in 2001, Kenneth Lonergan's The Waverly Gallery is receiving its Broadway debut this fall. Hosting a plethora of stars, such as Elaine May, Lucas Hedges and Michael Cera, the production will see Scott Rudin and Kenneth Lonergan team up once to re-create the magic previously seen in This Is Our Youth and Margaret.

King Lear

February 28 - July 7, 2019

Glenda Jackson wastes no time in her continued conquering of the Great White Way after she noted three-decade absence to pursue a political career, an experience she may find indispensable as she prepares to reprise her much-acclaimed role as Shakespeare's ill-fated Royal in the Broadway transfer of this production from London's Old Vic Theatre.

252 West 45th St, New York, NY 10036

  • Year opened: 1927
  • Capacity: 804
  • Disabled access
  • In-house bar

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.
