Ethel Barrymore Theatre

In 1928, Lee and J.J. Shubert built this 1,058-seat and named it after Ethel Barrymore, part of the renowned Barrymore acting dynasty. Since then, it has been home to work by Cole Porter, Noel Coward, Rodgers and Hart, and many others. According to the Shubert Organization, the Herbert Krapp–designed exterior was "modeled on the public baths in Rome, with a two-story terra-cotta grillwork screen. The interior decor combines Elizabethan, Mediterranean and Adamsesque styles." Recently, film star Geoffrey Rush headlined a daring revival of the absurdist classic, Exit the King.
