Belasco Theatre

Midtown West
The ghost of late, great producer David Belasco supposedly haunts this 1,016-seat house, built in 1907. We've never seen the specter—no doubt clad in priestly garb, as Belasco was wont to do—but we'll take theater folks' word for it. In 1935, the elegant playhouse was home to the Clifford Odets's breakthrough drama Awake and Sing! It served as an NBC radio playhouse from 1949 to '53, but then returned to live fare. Over the decades, it has housed the scandalous sex-themed hit Oh! Calcutta!, James Joyce's The Dead and a sterling revival of August Wilson's Joe Turner's Come and Gone in 2009, which President Obama attended with the First Lady.
