Helen Hayes Theater
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Broadway's smallest house was named after the beloved leading lady Helen Hayes in 1983 (after her namesake venue was demolished, along with the Morosco and Bijou, to construct the New York Marriott Marquis). The 597-seat space is perfect for chamber musicals or straight drama, and with a house this cozy, you can be assured of excellent sightlines. Nonprofit company Second Stage Theatre recently assumed control of the venue; after extensive renovations, overseen by designer David Rockwell, the venue reopened in 2018.
