A collaboration between producer George Broadhurst and the Shubert brothers, the Broadhurst Theatre opened in 1917 with George Bernard Shaw's Misalliance. It would go on to have a successful run, and despite some ups and downs through its century of existence, it has remained steadily booked. Its stage has seen the likes of Leslie Howard, Katherine Hepburn, and Diane Keaton.

Designed with simplicity in mind, the venue's productions are anything but simple. It has staged shows from all genres and eras, ranging from Shakespearean greats to modern classics like Mamma Mia!, Grease, Chicago, and more recently, A Beautiful Noise: The Neil Diamond Musical.
