Broadway Theatre

Time Out Says

Built in 1924 to be a deluxe movie theater, this is one of the roomier venues on the Great White Way, with 1,761 seats. It's also one of only five playhouses that faces Broadway. A favorite locale for big, fat musicals (The Color Purple, Shrek), the Broadway features some of the most prominent signage around. The Ed Sullivan Theater—where David Letterman tapes his show—is located just down the street. The original façade (like the interior) was built in the Italian Renaissance style.

What's On

The Little Prince

  • Drama

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's cosmically whimsical 1942 parable about a young intergalactic traveler lands on Broadway in an international production directed and choreographed by Anne Tournié, with words by co-director Chris Mouron (who also delivers the narration) and original music by Terry Truck. Lionel Zalachas plays the little starman, and Aurélien Bednarek is the Earthling aviator who befriends him; expect an elaborate spectacle with aerial acrobatics and plenty of trippy video effects.
