Stephen Sondheim Theatre

124 W. 43rd St., New York, NY
Seats (approximate): 1055

Allen, Ingalls & Hoffman, architects. Built by Henry Miller and managed by his son, Gilbert, after his death in 1926. In 1968, the venue was sold to Seymour Durst. Later, it showed blue movies, then became a discotheque. In 1998, it returned to legit use as operated by the Roundabout Theatre Company. The venue closed in 2004 for construction, and the new 1,055-seat house reopened in 2009. Located inside the new 55-story Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park, the theatre sits behind the original 1918 facade.

Built: 1918
