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.

The Heart of Rock and Roll

  • Musicals

Start spreading the News! Huey Lewis and his band are the latest pop hitmakers to get a Broadway jukebox musical to call their own. Jonathan A. Abrams weaves such chart toppers as “The Power of Love,” "Stuck with You," and “If This Is It" into a feel-good romcom, directed by Gordon Greenberg; Corey Cott and McKenzie Kurtz play the central couple, joined by gifted actor-singers including F. Michael Haynie, Tamika Lawrence, Orville Mendoza and John Dossett.
