With 1,082 seats and a lovely four-column facade, the Cort is one of the few Broadway houses located east of Broadway (or the "wrong side of the tracks," as we like to joke). It was built by West Coast impresario John Cort in 1912. Recent notable productions there have included Julie Taymor's The Green Bird, Douglas Carter Beane's The Little Dog Laughed and the revival of August Wilson's Fences, starring Denzel Washington. The venue generally hosts limited-run shows; rarely does it have a long-term tenant.
