Stephen Sondheim Theatre History

The Stephen Sondheim Theatre received its name in 2010, in honor of the legendary Broadway composer/lyricist who wrote such musicals as A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Sweeney Todd, and Into the Woods. The theater, which was originally named for multi-talented Broadway performer and producer Henry Miller (see HENRY MILLER'S THEATRE), opened in 1918 and has hosted numerous distinguished plays. In the 1970s, the theater functioned as an adult movie house and then as the night club Xenon before returning to legitimacy in the late '90s. The Henry Miller's Theatre was home to the Broadway production of Urinetown before closing for a major remodeling a few years later. The theater re-opened in 2009 as Roundabout Theatre Company's third Broadway house and was re-named the Stephen Sondheim Theatre the following year.

Stephen Sondheim Theatre Design

The Stephen Sondheim Theatre, originally called Henry Miller's Theatre, was designed in the Neo-Classical style and built by Allen, Ingalls & Hoffman. Though the theater was torn down in 2004 to accommodate the new Bank of America tower, the Henry Miller's original facade was preserved and a new 1,055-seat theater constructed in place of the old one.
