Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

With 931 seats, this is one of the Main Stem’s smaller houses, ideal for plays and chamber musicals. Designed by Herbert J. Krapp in the sumptuous Italian Renaissance style, the Shubert family opened it in 1921 (the space is now owned by Jujamcyn) as yhe Ritz Theatre. The space was used as a radio and TV studio between 1943 and 1965, and lay fallow from 1965 to 1971, when it reopened. In 1990, the Ritz was renamed after Kerr, a beloved and respected theater critic (yes, such creatures once existed).
