The Shubert Theatre had its genesis in the New Theatre, an "art" playhouse located on Central Park West that was devoted to serious repertory drama. Although the project was a critical and commercial flop, the New Theatre Group, which included Lee...more

There is, as anyone who has seen a show there knows, a great historic feel to the Shubert. That, admittedly is irreplaceable. I have never heard of anyone choosing their show preference by theater location, but the older theaters have a special vibe. So you...More
