Time Out says

Some theaters get their names from composers or producers—even from dead drama critics. but the Music Box is named after a specific show. In 1921, producer Sam H. Harris honored a deal he made with hit-maker Irving Berlin and christened his new venue after Berlin's new tuner, The Music Box Revue. Since then, the 1,099-seat house, with an elegant limestone facade, has hosted a variety of musical and dramatic attractions. The 1930s at the Music Box were George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s decade; they premiered several comedies there, and Hart called it a dream theater. In recent seasons, the Music Box was home to August: Osage County.

What’s on

Dancin'

  • Musicals

Few director-choreographers have left as deep a mark on Broadway as Bob Fosse, whose range as a dancemaker extends well beyond the hat tricks, jazz hands and fractured poses for which he is perhaps best known. This revival of his hit 1978 dance revue, overseen by original cast member Wayne Cilento, includes such Fosse classics as "Mr. Bojangles," "I Wanna Be a Dancin' Man" and "Sing Sing Sing."
