Built in 1925 and christened the Forrest Theatre after great American thespian Edwin Forrest, this 1,030-seat playhouse has gone through many changes over the decades. It became the Coronet Theatre in 1945. Then in 1959, following a hit revival of Eugene O’Neill’s The Great God Brown, it got its present name. Playwright Neil Simon bought the building in the late ’60s and sold it to Jujamcyn in 1982. In 1999 the O’Neill was home to the acclaimed 50th-anniversary production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman.
Since 2011 it has housed The Book of Mormon.

If theater is your religion and the Broadway musical your sect, you've been woefully faith-challenged of late. Venturesome, boundary-pushing works such as Spring Awakening, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and Next to Normal closed too soon. American Idiot...Musicals Until Sunday December 31 2017
