Hudson Theatre

Hudson Theatre


Situated just off Times Square in New York on West 44th Street, Hudson Theatre originally opened on October 19, 1903 with a production of Cousin Kate starring Ethel Barrymore. Built by Henry B. Harris, a famous Broadway producer of that period, the theatre is one of New York City’s oldest Broadway showplaces. Among the stars that have graced the Hudson’s stage are Douglas Fairbanks, William Holden, Helen Hayes, Edward G. Robinson and Dorothy Gish. Barbara Stanwyck and Judith Anderson both made their debuts on its stage. On September 27, 1956 the first nationwide broadcast of The Tonight Show starring Steve Allen originated from the Hudson stage.

In 2017, the landmarked venue was renovated and restored to its former glory and reopened as the 41st Broadway theatre with a critically acclaimed production of Sunday in the Park with George starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Annaleigh Ashford.

Seating capacity: 977
