Time Out says

Master architect Herbert J. Krapp designed the Jacobs (formerly the Royale) in the “modern Spanish style.” The theatre's interior features a groin-vaulted ceiling supported on either side by archways decorated with two murals titled "Lovers of Spain," by Willy Pogany. The interior color scheme is cardinal red, orange and gold. It seats 1,078 and opened in 1927. Show highlights include The Entertainer (1958), Night of the Iguana (1961), Lend Me a Tenor (1989), Art (1998) and Copenhagen (2000).

What’s on


  • Musicals

Ben Platt (Dear Evan Hansen) and Micaela Diamond (The Cher Show) star in a revival of Jason Robert Brown and Alfred Uhry's Tony Award–winning 1998 musical tragedy, based on the true story of Leo Frank, a Jewish man falsely accused of murdering a young girl in 1913 Georgia. Director Michael Arden (Once on This Island) uses historical photographs and projections to lend documentary gravity to the staging, which made its debut as a hugely suceessful concert staging at City Center last year. The supporting cast for the Broadway transfer has not yet been announced.
