George Gershwin Theatre *

Broadway Theatre and recent home to Wicked & Oklahoma
The Gershwin Theatre was named in honor of one of America's greatest composers, George Gershwin, and his brother, lyricist Ira Gershwin. The theatre's rotunda was designed to showcase the names and photographs of Broadway's own Theater Hall of Fame. Theatre audiences now enjoy an exhibition on display throughout the main lobby of costumes, opening night gifts, props, stage notes, and other items from the personal collections of such Broadway luminaries as Carol Channing, Julie Harris, Lynn Fontanne, Angela Lansbury, Bernadette Peters, John Raitt, Chita Rivera, Tommy Tune, Irene Worth and many others.

  • PacoMDFACS gave this place *
    Nice venue
    Easily accessible in the heart of the Theater District and Hell's Kitchen. In a walking distance from Times Square and Port Authority. It is a classic venue, spacious, clean and the sittings are comfortable. However for the show that they are playing, make sure that you get center sits because if you take the ones on the sides you might not have a full view of the stage, specially if you are close to the orchestra.
