Named after the great American thespian Edwin Booth, this venue, built in 1913, is a relatively intimate playhouse (766 seats) nestled near Shubert Alley. Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Sunday in the Park with George played here in 1984, and so did Robert Morse in Tru. More recently, the Booth was home to the Pulitzer Prize–winning musical Next to Normal and the Tony-winning revival of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

This is a spectacular space from the early 1900s! The distress detail on the ceiling as well as the trimming around the stage are extremely eye-catching. As you sit back and wait for the show to start, take a moment to enjoy the view.
