About This Theatre

This theatre has been a house of hits, hosting a long line of famed musicals including Anything Goes, Guys and Dolls, Damn Yankees, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Nine, Chicago, and Movin’ Out.

The theatre was refurbished in 2006 and houses The Richard Rodgers Gallery featuring historic memorabilia from its namesake’s storied career.

The Richard Rodgers TheatreTo honor the late composer, in 1990, the 46th Street Theatre was officially renamed the Richard Rodgers through the efforts of producer Alexander H. Cohen and the Nederlander Organization. This theatre, built in 1924, was also the first to utilize “democratic seating,” in which all patrons used the same entrance, whether they were heading to orchestra or balcony seats.

Before Hamilton moved in and promised to keep the theatre filled to capacity for the next several years, the most recent productions have been Idina Menzel in If/Then; Condola Rashad and Orlando Bloom in Romeo and Juliet; Scarlett Johansson in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof; Lewis Black: Running on Empty; The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess (two Tony Awards); Robin Williams in Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo; Lin-Manuel Miranda’s first Tony Award-winning musical, In the Heights; Cyrano de Bergerac; Tarzan; Movin’ Out; Private Lives; Neil Simon’s 45 Seconds From Broadway; Seussical; Footloose; Side Show; Steel Pier; How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying; Laughter on the 23rd Floor; Fool Moon; Lost in Yonkers; Dustin Hoffman in The Merchant of Venice; James Earl Jones in Fences; and Raúl Juliá in Nine.

The 1970s started with an enormous hit at the Rodgers: the revival of No, No, Nanette. There was also Raisin, a musical version of the play A Raisin the Sun; Maggie Smith in Private Lives; the original Chicago; and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.

The great triple threat Gwen Verdon reigned here throughout the late 1950s, winning Tony Awards in three successive musicals—Damn Yankees, New Girl in Town, and Redhead. Shows in the 1960s included How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, which won Tonys for Robert Morse and Charles Nelson Reilly; Do I Hear a Waltz?; Mary Martin and Robert Preston in I Do! I Do!; and 1776.

The 1950s began with Nanette Fabray, Pearl Bailey, and Georges Guetary in Arms and the Girl, followed by Frank Loesser’s Guys and Dolls. In 1954, Audrey Hepburn won a Tony Award for Ondine, which also won Tonys for Alfred Lunt (direction), Peter Larkin (sets), and Richard Whorf (costumes). A revival of the Rodgers and Hart musical On Your Toes starred Zorina, Bobby Van, and Elaine Stritch; and Patty McCormack terrified audiences in The Bad Seed, starring Nancy Kelly as her horrified mother.

The 1940s saw the first time Ethel Merman’s name went up alone over the title with Panama Hattie. Dark of the Moon and Finian’s Rainbow were enormous hits, as were Mary Martin in One Touch of Venus and Eddie Foy Jr. in The Red Mill. Other vintage hits: Good News (1927), Hellzapoppin (1938), and DuBarry Was a Lady (1939).
