Minskoff Theatre (Broadway) History

Opened in 1973, the theatre was named for Sam Minskoff and Sons, one of New York's distinguished real estate families. More than 200 craftsmen and artisans worked nearly six months to extensively refurbish the Minskoff Theatre to welcome Disney's The Lion King. Architectural designer Mariuca Brancoveanu has created a dramatic new environment that starts with the terrazzo walkway through the promenade into the theatre. The main lobby area features hand-painted, gold-leaf sculpted tableaus that adorn the theatre's expansive interior walls and showcase its panoramic views of Broadway. The Minskoff has 1,696 seats and is one of The Nederlander Organization's nine Broadway theatres.

The Minskoff Theatre is the host of the Jimmy Awards, honoring the theatre achievements of high school students across the country! The first Jimmy Awards were held in 2009 at NYU's Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, and the 2010 awards were held at the Marquis Theatre. All subsequent shows have been held at the Minskoff Theatre. The Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS' annual Spring Easter Bonnet Competition and the Autumn The Red Bucket Follies Competition are also held at the Minskoff Theatre, helping to raise money for Broadway Cares!
