Broadway Show Parking
Parking For This Theatre:
The closest parking garage for the Circle In The Square Theatre is located at:
Quik Park Garage Triple Eight Garage LLC
1633 Broadway
New York, NY 10019
Icon Parking Systems
307 West 50th Street
New York, NY 10019
The closest parking is not always the best as it often takes longer to park and retrieve your vehicle as fellow theatre goers have the same idea. Also, this theatre is next to the Gershwin Theatre that houses the Broadway smash-hit musical, Wicked. This means that around those show times the parking lot is often overwhelmed. A better choice of parking may be the second choice or further away by a couple of Avenues.
