Belasco Theatre, New York City

4.2
David Belasco opened the Stuyvesant in October 1907, having already bequeathed his name on his 42nd St playhouse, now the New Victory. When he relinquished the 42nd St theatre in 1910, he immediately renamed the Stuyvesant as the Belasco. He provided himself with a duplex apartment above the theatre that had the décor of a Gothic church, and housed much of his theatrical memorabilia. Following his death, the theatre was rumored to be haunted by his ghost, until it was banished by the risqué production, Oh Calcutta!. The theatre came under Shubert ownership in 1948.

  • Seeing a great show (Network) probably influenced my opinion, but I loved this theater. Intimate enough too feel close to the action, but still very classy. Check it out and enjoy!
  • One of the old grand dames of Broadway, dating to 1907. Lovingly restored with new seating installed to the old cast iron frames. Adequate legroom, which sometimes is a problem for me (I'm 6'3"). Wonderful ambiance and acoustics make the Belasco a great venue, with an intimate feeling for the audience. Parking garage across the street, and easy access to Grand Central and city subways if you're into mass transit. Very handicapped accessible also. Highly recommended.
