This classic 1903 Art Nouveau house has seen many changes on the Main Stem over the last century: vaudeville, classics, the Ziegfeld Follies (for more than two decades), the drastic decline of the Theater District during the Great Depression, and another dip in the 1970s and ’80s. Renovated and reopened in 1997, the New Amsterdam soon became home to the Disney smash hit The Lion King, and. since 2006, Mary Poppins has been wowing families. (The Lion King moved to the Minksoff.) The theater is operated by Disney Theatrical Productions.
