Previously called Chanin's 46th Street Theatre, The Richard Rodgers Theatre had its opening in 1924. One of the Broadway venues owned by the Chanin Brothers, the venue was renamed after the legendary Richard Rodgers in 1990. The design was led by Herbert Krapp, who added an elevated stadium-type seating at the back of the Orchestra section, creating seating with great views at lower prices. 

Some notable productions at the Richard Rodgers Theatre are "Chicago" (1975) and "In the Heights" (2008). The theater is currently home to Lin-Manuel Miranda's blockbuster, "Hamilton" (2015).

  • The Orchestra is the largest section with 816 seats, divided into Left, Center, and Right.

  • Aisles run between the Left, Center, and Right sections.
  • The Rear Mezzanine, located at the back, is more significant, with 268 seats across eight rows. It benefits from a good rake, but the steep angle may make stage views distant.
