At 597 seats Broadway's smallest space, the Helen Hayes was named after the beloved leading lady in 1983 (after her namesake venue was demolished, along with the Morosco and Bijou, to construct the New York Marriott Marquis). The space is perfect for chamber musicals or straight drama, and with a house this cozy, you can be assured of excellent sightlines. Nonprofit company Second Stage Theatre is poised to buy the property, but the deal has yet to be inked.
