Marquis Theatre marquee, featuring Come Fly Away on BroadwayThe Marquis Theatre, which has been leased by the Nederlander Organization for 35 years, had a spectacular opening on August 10, 1986, with an enormous hit: Me and My Girl, a new production of a 1937 London musical that delighted audiences with its broad humor, glamorous sets and costumes, and rousing musical score. Robert Lindsay, Maryann Plunkett, and Gillian Gregory all took home Tony Awards for it; the musical ran for 1,420 performances and got the beautiful new theatre off to a flying start.

Audiences also liked the raucous Brazilian song-and-dance revue called Oba Oba ’90 before the scenic resources of the Marquis were tested to their fullest capacities by Shogun: The Musical in 1990. Based on the novel by James Clavell, the musical had book and lyrics by John Driver and music by Paul Chihara.

Tyne Daly, who had won a Tony the previous season for her starring role in Gypsy, brought the musical back to the Marquis Theatre in 1991 and repeated her electrifying performance as Rose. Arthur Laurents was back at the Marquis later that year as librettist and director of the musical Nick & Nora, which had a score by Charles Strouse and Richard Maltby Jr. Based on the characters Nick and Nora Charles, created by Dashiell Hammett for The Thin Man, the musical spoof cast Barry Bostwick and Joanna Gleason as the husband and wife sleuths and Faith Prince as a hysterical murder victim.

On April 24, 1992, a new production of Man of La Mancha opened at the Marquis, starring Raúl Juliá  as  Cervantes/Don  Quixote and Sheena Easton as Aldonza/Dulcinea.

The Marquis’s 1993 tenant was The Goodbye Girl, starring Bernadette Peters and Martin Short, based on the Neil Simon film, with book by Simon and a Marvin Hamlisch– David Zippel score.

In 1994, a splendid new production of Damn Yankees opened with Bebe Neuwirth, Victor Garber, and Jarrod Emick. Garber was succeeded by Jerry Lewis, making his Broadway debut. Julie Andrews in Victor/ Victoria was a long-running tenant. She was succeeded in the title role by Liza Minnelli and then Raquel Welch.

This  theatre’s most  recent  tenants include On Your Feet!; Lewis Black: Black to the Future; Penn & Teller on Broadway; The Illusionists: Witness the Impossible; multinational vocal group Il Divo; revivals of Jekyll & Hyde, Evita, and Sondheim’s Follies; Wonderland; Donnie & Marie: A Broadway Christmas; Come Fly Away; Irving Berlin’s White Christmas; 9 to 5; Cry-Baby; The Drowsy Chaperone; The Woman in White; La Cage aux Folles; Sutton Foster winning her first Tony in Thoroughly Modern Millie (903 performances); a Tony-winning Bernadette Peters—followed by starry replacements, including Reba McEntire—in Annie Get Your Gun (1,045 performances); Peter Pan; Forever Tango; and The Capeman.
