Helen Hayes Theatre
Broadway Theatre and recent home to Rock of Ages, Next Fall, The 39 Steps, and Kiki & Herb: Alive on Broadway
The Helen Hayes Theatre was designed by the architect Harry Creighton Ingalls of the firm Ingalls & Hoffman, and built by Winthrop Ames. When it first opened, it was known as the Little Theatre, owing both to the theatre's small size (with a seating capacity of only 300), and also because the theatre's goal was to create small, intimate productions. The theatre in fact gave birth to what became known as the Little Theatre Movement in the early twentieth century.
