List of Broadway Theatres & Their Visibility

I have compiled a list of every Broadway theater and the general reviews I have read on their visibility to be used as a reference for all those broke theatre kids out there. I would also like to add that each show has its own discount ticket policy- standing room, student rush, lottery, regular rush, etc. And you should check out that and the general popularity of the show (i.e. your chances of getting the one of the limited number of discounted tickets) before buying your own ticket.

Today in History: “The Bridges of Madison County”, starring Kelli O'Hara and Steven Pasquale with music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown, closes at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Broadway after only 92 regular performances. (May 18th, 2014). The show will reportedly be launching a national tour in the fall of 2015.

On behalf of our director Bartlett Sher, we want to say something — we want to say thank you for coming to help us send this out into the world, because this is by no means going into the ground

For all those of you who don’t know how it is to be in theatre or what it is to make a show, we work really hard together to do the emotional part, and it’s so heavy for us; and every person in this cast, this crew, the men and the women in the front and the back, all on the stage, the house staff, everybody has done this; and I know I can speak for them all when I say it’s been a labor of love. This is something that we’ve believed in from the very beginning. 

I thought today wasn’t going to go over very well, and then I realized that I could do this show because I felt the exact same way every single night of performing it as I felt tonight…which is absolute and complete gratitude; and I will never feel any other way, and I have never worked with more sincere, uncynical, beautifully talented people in my entire life and I don’t know that I will again.”

- Kelli O’Hara after the final performance of The Bridges of Madison County at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, May 18th, 2014.

So, instead of studying for finals, I have compiled a list of what theatres housed each best actress in a musical Tony win up to this year. Some of these actresses have played return engagements in their roles and others stayed with shows through a theatre change, but I chose not to include those details since that would require a lot more research. So, this list is the theatre each performance originated in. I have listed the theatres as they are named in 2015, or the name they most recently had until they were demolished.
