Reviews for Brooks Atkinson Theatre

over a year ago

This Broadway stage rarely has a shortage of stars. – Overview
Built in 1926, this theater has borne the names of a few different men: first, actor Richard Mansfield, then, producer Lew M. Fields and finally, critic Brooks Atkinson who wrote for the New York Times. The exterior is inspired by Spanish architecture, while the interior with its fancy plaster work has landmark status.

The Background

Not many successful plays have originated here, but a few notable exceptions are worth mentioning: "Sweet Charity" (1942), "Come Blow Your Horn" (1961) and "Noises Off" (1983). Really, this theater is known more for the stars who have trodden its boards--Jane Alexander, Glenn Close, Claudette Colbert, Richard Dreyfus, Gene Hackman, Rex Harrison, Dustin Hoffman, James Earl Jones, Jackie Mason, Stephanie Mills, Lynn Redgrave, Liv Ullman, Eli Wallach and Sam Waterston among them.
