Shubert Theatre


The Shubert Theatre opened in 1913 with a series of Shakespearean plays. It is named after Sam S. Shubert, one of the three Shubert Brothers. The sidewalk that adjoins it to the Booth Theatre is known as Shubert Alley. The theater is perhaps best known for housing the original Broadway production of A Chorus Line, which ran for an incredible 6,137 performances.

The theatre has been a returning venue for the Tony Awards and has been designated a New York City landmark.  In the 2005 film version of Mel Brooks’ The Producers, the musicals Funny Boy, Springtime for Hitler, and Prisoners of Love are all staged at the Shubert Theatre.
