Brooks Atkinson Theatre

Built in 1926, this theatre opened as the Mansfield and operated for only a few years before falling into disuse in 1933. For 15 years, it was used as a CBS TV sound-stage for "What's My Line?". In 1960, it was renamed for New York Times theatre critic Brooks Atkinson and returned to legitimate use. It has since seen the premieres of "Come Blow Your Horn," "Noises Off," and "Talley's Folly." The theatre hosted the revival of "Grease!" which cast its Sandy and Danny via a reality TV show, as well as the Deaf West Theatre revival of "Spring Awakening."
