Vacation Travel Guide

Richard Rodgers Theatre featuring heritage elements

Attend some of the world’s most famous stage shows, such as the internationally renowned phenomenon Hamilton, at this historic theater in the heart of Broadway.

The Richard Rodgers Theatre is one of the most respected theaters in New York City’s famous Broadway theater district. Visit this beautiful building, which is fast approaching its 100th birthday, to see a slice of the city’s rich theatrical history in person. This is not only an elegant and wonderfully designed space; it has also been the venue for many of the world’s most famous musicals over the years. This continues to be the case today. See in-demand shows such as the critically acclaimed Hamilton in the lovely venue.

The theater first opened its doors in 1924, although in those days it was known as the 46th Street Theatre. This was the Golden Age of live entertainment in New York City, when new venues were opening in great numbers and Broadway was in the process of building its reputation as the world capital for musical theater. The composer Richard Rodgers played a major role in cementing that reputation. Visit the theater today to find a space dedicated to the memory of this remarkable man, whose work featured in iconic musicals such as Oklahoma! and The King and I.

Admire the splendid Renaissance-style building from outside before stepping inside to enjoy an interior that perfectly captures a sense of Broadway’s opulent past. The inside spaces were painstakingly restored in 2006, with the craftspeople involved taking care to retain the traditional elements that make this building so special. Look around the vast 1,319-seat auditorium and let its many wonderful details catch your eye. From ornate gold accents to red velvet seating, crystal chandeliers and intricate hand-painted murals, the space is rich with lavish features.

Find the Richard Rogers Theatre at the hub of the Broadway theater area. The building is down the street from iconic Times Square and close to a huge selection of other New York City icons such as Radio City Music Hall, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and Carnegie Hall. Several subway stations are close, but the nearest is 49th Street.
