Broadhurst Theatre History

In 1917, the Broadhurst Theatre was opened by the Shubert brothers, and named for beloved dramatist (and theatre co-manager) George Broadhurst.

The Theatre 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 Shubert Organization have retained ownership.

Previous Noteworthy Shows

In 1917, the Broadhurst opened with George Bernard Shaw’s Misalliance but It only ran for only for a dismal 52 performances, which was less than a stellar start. By 1924, Beggar on Horseback, a play by George S. Kaufman and Marc Connelly, opened and ran for 224 performances to rave reviews and success at the Box Office.

Other notables include Pal Joey in 1952, Auntie Mame in 1956, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Fiorello in 1959, and multiple Tony winner Cabaret in 1966.

More recently, the Broadhurst Theatre has housed Billy Crystal's one-man show 700 Sundays, the short-lived musical Lennon, The History Boys, Hamlet starring Jude Law, and The Merchant of Venice featuring Al Pacino.

Broadhurst Theatre Design

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.
