Longacre Theatre
This 1,091-seater—with a French Neoclassical–style exterior and a Beaux Arts–style interior—is one theater where the balcony seating is preferable to the mezzanine (which has almost no rake). Built in 1913, it has seen work by Ethel Barrymore and George S. Kaufman. In 1935, the Group Theatre was in residence, offering three productions by Clifford Odets: Waiting for Lefty, Till the Day I Die and Paradise Lost. The casts featured Odets, Elia Kazan, Bobby Lewis, Stella Adler, Morris Carnovsky and Sanford Meisner. Recent successful revivals at the theater have included Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Talk Radio and Magic/Bird.
