HISTORY: Christened the Alvin in 1927, the Neil Simon Theatre was renamed in 1983 to honor America's most prolific playwright, following the successful engagement of Brighton Beach Memoirs, the first play of an autobiographical trilogy about his youth with his family. Fittingly, in 1985, the second play of Mr. Simon's trilogy, Biloxi Blues, played there successfully. In 1992, Mr. Simon returned again with his play Jake's Women. Since 2000, the Neil Simon has been filled with music and dancing as the home to two of Broadway's most popular productions, namely the acclaimed revival of The Music Man and the Tony Award–winning Best Musical Hairspray. The Neil Simon Theatre has 1,445 seats and is one of The Nederlander Organization's nine Broadway theatres. Learn More in Theatre Stories
