Shubert Theatre History

The Sam S. Shubert Theatre is one of the great Broadway landmarks. The theatre holds a prime location on 44th Street, and the old-fashioned lit-up marquee above the corner entrance makes it unmissable in passing.

Shubert Brothers

Opened in 1913, the theater was named for the man who began the Shubert empire by his brothers Lee and J.J. The notorious Shubert brothers went on to erect performance spaces all over New York City and across the country -- currently, The Shubert Organization owns and/or operates 16 theaters on Broadway alone.

The Sam S. Shubert Theatre was for 15 years the home of A Chorus Line, which transferred there from the Public Theater in 1975 and in 1990 became the longest-running Broadway musical of all time (until Cats beat its record).

For several years, the smash hit revival of Chicago was synonymous with the Shubert Theatre, before the show transferred to the Ambassador in 2003.

Shubert Alley

As well-known as the Shubert Theatre is Shubert Alley, which runs alongside it and the Booth Theatre, providing a convenient route to 45th Street.

Previous Notable Shows

With a seating capacity of approximately 1,500, the Sam S. Shubert Theatre is an obvious choice for big musicals, but it has also presented a number of plays over the years,

These include The Philadelphia Story with Katharine Hepburn, Othello with Paul Robeson, Uta Hagen, and Jose Ferrer, and Edward Albee's Pulitzer Prize-winning Seascape. Past musical productions include Babes in Arms, By Jupiter, Bloomer Girl, High Button Shoes, Paint Your Wagon, Can-Can, Pipe Dream, Bells Are Ringing, I Can Get It For You Wholesale (Barbra Streisand's Broadway debut!), Stop the World - I Want to Get Off, The Apple Tree, Promises, Promises, A Little Night Music, A Chorus Line, Crazy For You, Big, the revival of Chicago, the Bernadette Peters revival of Gypsy, Monty Python's Spamalot, and Memphis.

Shubert Theatre Design

The Shubert Theatre was designed in the Venetian Renaissance style and the interior, which underwent restoration in 1996, features several murals by J. Mortimer Lichtenauer.

The lobby is long but narrow, so before the show and during intermission the audience tends to spill out into the perfectly accommodating Shubert Alley. There they can peruse the Broadway show posters that decorate the alley and read the plaque which, put there on the occasion of the Sam S. Shubert Theatre's 50th anniversary, reads: "Dedicated to all those who glorify the theatre and use this short thoroughfare."
