Brooks Atkinson Theatre
The third theatre of Irwin and Henry Chanin opened on February 15, 1926 as Mansfield Theatre after the leading stage actor Richard Mansfield, one of the most popular actors of the time best known for his roles in shows by Shakespeare and Gilbert and Sullivan. The theatre thrived with hits such as The Green Pastures and Anna Lucasta. Both shows feature all-black casts. After a decade-long period during which the theatre served as a television studio, the Mansfield Theatre was renamed after New York Times drama critic Brooks Atkinson on September 12, 1960. Its stage revival was marked by a production of Neil Simon’s Come Blow Your Horn in 1961. Since then, the Brooks Atkinson Theatre has staged several hit shows, including the British comedy Noises Off, Tony Award-winning Death and the Maiden, and revivals of She Loves Me and Grease.
The Brooks Atkinson Theatre has a seating capacity of over 1,000 arranged in 30 rows of tiered seating. Seats are available on the Orchestra Level, the Front Mezzanine, and the Rear Mezzanine.
