Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (Broadway) History

The Shuberts built the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (formerly the Plymouth) along with the contiguous Broadhurst in 1917. The playhouse was initially leased to producer Arthur M. Hopkins who achieved much success in booking it. It was renamed the Gerald Schoenfeld in 2005 to honor the late chairman of the Shubert Organization. The Schoenfeld was the architect Herbert Krapp's first independent commission. The interior design motifs, including the Adamsesque detailing, subtly reflect those of the somewhat more ornate Booth and Shubert.

Shows to have graced the stage of the Schoenfeld include Dark Victory (1934) starring Tallulah Bankhead, The Skin of Our Teeth (1942) starring Tallulah BankheadFredric MarchFlorence Eldridge, and Montgomery Clift; The Odd Couple (1965) starring Walter Matthau and Art Carney; Plaza Suite (1968) starring George C. ScottMaureen Stapleton and Bob Balaban; Equus (1974) starring Peter FirthFrances Sternhagen and more; Godspell (1976, transfer from the Broadhurst Theatre) starring Lamar AlfordLaurie FasoLois Foraker, and so many more!
