The Broadway Theatre is one of only five playhouses that front on the street named Broadway. It opened in 1924 as B. S. Moss's Colony, a premiere film house. The most notable film that played there in the early years was Walt Disney's Steamboat Willie which opened in 1928, and introduced American audiences to an adorable rodent named Mickey Mouse. The theatre went "legit" from 1930 to 1934, when it was re-christened the Broadway. From 1934 to 1940, the house was once again dedicated to motion picture exhibition, and offered the premiere of Disney's Fantasia in 1939. In 1940, however, it returned to legitimate stage production and, except for a brief stint as a Cinerama movie theatre in the 1950s, has remained in the business of showcasing live theatre ever since. B. S. Moss commissioned architect Eugene DeRosa to design the Colony as part of his chain of movie theatres, many of which also housed vaudeville. The large size of the theatre made it ideal for musical comedies.

This production lived up to the hype and expectations I had. The set was impressive and the helicopter scene was beyond description. The singing talents of the crew was professionally done and most of the scenes I found riveting. There were a few scenes which...More

Saw Miss Saigon at this theatre in NYC. Very beautiful theatre, with really great seating. Old fashioned, and comfortable. My only 'complaint' is that it was freezing cold inside, and wasn't comfortable for the first 1.5 hours before intermission. But otherwise, great. So if you're...More

Nice theatre, but a bit cramped in seating. Classic musical with a plot similar to Madame Butterfly, but with a Vietnam War era setting. Staging is excellent with several dynamic scene changes.

Yes the theatre was not huge and the stage had lots of movement so I would think that your view would be fine from any angle

We sat in the front mezzanine and the seats were great. The theater is not that large so not really a bad seat in the house.
