The Minskoff Theatre is located on the southwest corner of 45th Street and 7th Avenue. The entrance is in a pedestrian alley that runs from 44th to 45th Street. It is number 21 on The Broadway Map


Since the actual theater (which you get to via a large escalator from the box office entrance) is thirty-five feet up, the Minskoff offers a spectacular view of Times Square from the front glass windows of the upstairs lobby. The design of the auditorium is characterized by its simplicity, with charcoal gray seats that are large and comfortable and an interior that is all white and gold.

Minskoff Theatre Background:
The Minskoff Theatre, which was designed by architectural firm Kahn and Jacobs, is on the third floor of One Astor Plaza. The fifty-five story office high-rise is named for the Minskoffs, the family that built and owns it. The theater was opened in 1973 and was designed in a modern style. It is perhaps best known to regular playgoers as the theater in the "wind tunnel," a nickname for the large walkway that connects 44th and 45th streets, and in which the ground floor entrance to the Minskoff is found. The Minskoff Theatre is under the direction of James Nederlander and Myron Minskoff and is best suited for large-scale musicals.


The entrance to the Minskoff Theatre is at street level. The coat check, concessions, and spacious restrooms can be found up on the 3rd level, where the theater proper is located.


Take the 1, 2, 3, 9, N, R, S, or Q subway to 42nd Street, then walk north on Broadway to 45th Street.
