This 1927 house was designed by the great Broadway architect Herbert Krapp in the "modern Spanish" style. It was home to four Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals, which premiered consecutively: Carousel (1945), Allegro (1947), South Pacific (1949) and 1953's Me and Juliet. More recently—and by that, we mean since 1987—the Majestic has been home to The Phantom of the Opera, which shows no sign of closing. It seats 1,615.
