The Basics

With a 1,069-person capacity, the Brooks Atkinson Theatre has a more intimate ambiance than many bigger Broadway theaters. It is popular with theatergoers for its calendar of hit shows, so be sure to book your tickets in advance. Redecorated in 2000, the theater once again houses its original chandelier, which had been removed more than 40 years earlier. The Brooks Atkinson is a NYC Designated Manhattan Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
