George Bernard Shaw's Misalliance was the first production in this theater, currently operated by the Shuberts and with 1,156 seats. Renowned architect Herbert J. Krapp decorated the Broadhurst's interior with Doric columns and Greek-style cornices and friezes. Its spare exterior is mostly brickwork, enhanced by touches of stone and terra-cotta trim. Amadeus played here in 1980, as well as the Public Theater's The Tempest, starring Patrick Stewart. Recent residents have included Billy Crystal's solo memoir, 700 Sundays, and the English import Enron.
