Belasco Theatre

111 W. 44th St., New York, NY
Seats (approximate): 1018

George Keister, architect. David Belasco built it in 1907 with all the luxuries available. Best of all was a ten-room duplex penthouse apartment he built for himself. After his 1931 death, the theatre was leased to Katharine Cornell, then Elmer Rice. The Shuberts bought it in 1949 and, after leasing it to NBC for three years, returned it to legit use in 1953.

To learn more about the history of the Belasco Theatre, see historical information provided by the Shubert Organization and Spotlight on Broadway's video on David Belasco and the Belasco Theatre.

Built: 1907
