Built in 1924 to be a deluxe movie theater, this is one of the roomier venues on the Great White Way, with 1,761 seats. It's also one of only five playhouses that faces Broadway. A favorite locale for big, fat musicals (The Color Purple, Shrek), the Broadway features some of the most prominent signage around. The Ed Sullivan Theater—where David Letterman tapes his show—is located just down the street. The original façade (like the interior) was built in the Italian Renaissance style.
