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.

Best Seats In The House:
The Broadhurst Theatre has a seating capacity of 1,186. The best seats are located in the front mezzanine or in the center seats of the orchestra between rows C and K. Since the theater was built with a wide auditorium, the sightlines are good except for the extreme sides.

Broadhurst Theater Background:

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.
