Built in 1986, the Marquis is one of the newest Broadway houses. It's attached to the Marriott Marquis Hotel and, indeed, most of its occupant shows seem targeted to tourists. The venue has welcomed revivals (Gypsy, Damn Yankees, Annie Get Your Gun) and new work (Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Drowsy Chaperone). The Marquis has 1,611 seats and is one of the Nederlander's nine Broadway properties. The approach to the theater—via escalator—is unusual but rather grand. Even though the Marquis is bit barn-like, it has a spacious lobby, wide aisles and comfy seats.
