Cort Theatre

Time Out says

With 1,082 seats and a lovely four-column facade, the Jones 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, and was named after him until 2022. 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.

What’s on


  • Drama

Emma Donoghue adapted her own 2010 novel, about a kidnapped woman who has raised a small child inside her captive's home for all of his young life, into a hit 2015 film starring Brie Larson (who won an Oscar for her performance). Now she brings it to the stage as a play, starring Tina head-turner Adrienne Warren and directed by Cora Bissett—who also helmed the show's 2017 UK premiere and has cowritten songs for it with Kathryn Joseph.
