Location:
The Circle In The Square Theatre is located on the north side of 50th Street, just off of Broadway. It is number 5 on The Broadway Map

Design:
Designed by architect Alan Sayles, the Circle in the Square Theatre is one of the very few Broadway houses to be designed "in the round". You have to enter what looks like a parking garage to get into the modest lobby of the Circle in the Square, but once you've taken the escalator downstairs you are confronted by a spacious lounge area that, like the auditorium itself, is not aesthetically impressive but is at least clean and modern.

Circle in the Square Theatre

Background:
Like its gargantuan neighbor the Gershwin, the Circle in the Square Theatre was also built into the base of the Uris Building, on the former site of the Capitol Theatre. The Circle in the Square was built in 1972 as home to the Circle in the Square Theatre Company, which had previously been located in downtown's Greenwich Village. The lobby and lounge areas of the theater are decorated with numerous photographs capturing the company's distinguished production history, which has featured stars like Colleen Dewhurst, Lillian Gish, George C. Scott, Julie Christie, James Earl Jones, Vanessa Redgrave, Kevin Kline, Joanne Woodward, Rex Harrison, John Malkovich, and many more in both classics and new plays. Associated with the theater, and located in the same space, is the Circle in the Square Theatre School, a renowned program that has been training professional actors for over 40 years.

Best Seats In The House:
Because Circle in the Square has a thrust stage with seating on three sides, which seats offer the very best view will vary depending upon how an individual production is staged. In most cases, nearly all of the seats in this intimate theater are perfectly good, though it's best to avoid sitting in the high-numbered seats (approx. 220-248) along the sides.

Directions:
By subway, take the C/E or the 1 to 50th Street, or take the N/R to 49th Street.
