The Broadway home of Manhattan Theatre Club since 2001, the Friedman is one of the increasing number of venues run by nonprofit organizations (others include the Roundabout Theatre Company and Lincoln Center Theater). This cozy, 903-seat space has a relaxing basement lounge and ample aisles, making entrances and exits relatively easy. Originally named the Biltmore, it was rechristened in 2008 for the pioneering publicist Samuel J. Friedman. Since it is run by MTC, you can expect subscriber crowds to be there, checking out new plays and revivals. Historic pre-MTC productions include My Sister Eileen (1940), Barefoot in the Park (1963) and Deathtrap (1982).
