Buy Tickets To The Current Show At The Broadhurst Theatre
The Broadhurst Theatre is located on the north side of 44th street between
Broadway and 8th Avenue. It is number 26 on The Broadway Map
The outside of the Broadhurst Theatre is noteworthy for relying on the brickwork
pattern to set it apart from other theaters in the area. It is built with
an oval cartouche over the corner entrance. The interior of the Broadhurst
used Greek details for decoration. Doric columns and other ancient
Greek motifs such as a cornice of triglyphs and medallions were used to ornament
the auditorium. The Broadhurst Theatre was built with a large auditorium
that allows an unobstructed view of the stage.
In 1917, the Broadhurst Theatre was opened by the Shubert brothers, and named for dramatist (and co-manager) George Broadhurst. It was designed
by Herbert J. Krapp, the most prolific Broadway theatre architect of the era. Unusual for a theater of its age, the Broadhurst has retained its original name for its 85 plus years, and the Shuberts have retained ownership.
