Built in 1917 as a [relatively] low-cost home for high-brow theatre and originally known as the Plymouth, this theatre has seen the premieres of Robert Sherwood's "Abe Lincoln in Illinois," Neil Simon's "The Odd Couple," and John Barrymore's first Shakespearean role, Richard III. Since being renamed in 2005 for the Chairman of the Shubert Organization, it has hosted a revival of "A Chorus Line," Patrick Stewart in David Mamet's "A Life In The Theatre," and Hugh Jackman in "A Steady Rain."
There are no steps into the theatre from the sidewalk. Seating is accessible to all parts of the Orchestra without steps. The Mezzanine is located up a flight of stairs (31 steps). A wheelchair accessible restroom is located on the main level. Additional restrooms are located down 1 flight of stairs (20 steps) in the Lower Lounge. An assisted listening system is available.
