Brooks Atkinson Theatre - New York, NY
Located within walking distance of bustling Time Square, the venue can host just over 1,000 theatergoers. It has been well maintained over the years, including a redecoration in 2000 that included the installment of the original chandelier, which had been removed more than 40 years earlier.
The Brooks Atkinson Theatre has played host to numerous award-winning productions and a myriad of notable actors in the 90-plus years since opening its doors. Ellen Burstyn won a Tony Award for her role in the comedy Same Time, Next Year, the longest-running show hosted by the theater. More recently, Glenn Close won a Tony for her role alongside Gene Hackman and Richard Dreyfuss in Death and the Maiden.
Visitors to the Brooks Atkinson Theatre will find plenty of hotels, restaurants, bars and activities a block away under the bright lights of Times Square. Concessions, including drinks and refreshments, are available for purchase; however, only water beverages with tops are allowed in the auditorium. Wheelchair-accessible seating is available in the orchestra section. Like many Broadway playhouses, children under age 4 aren’t admitted to performances.
