About This Theatre

Built by Fortune Gallo as the Gallo Opera House, it was intended to rival the Metropolitan Opera House; its lavish decorations include the 54th Street entrance, which is embellished with mirror, marble, and 18th century plaster ornamentation.

The theatre itself is actually located on 53rd Street, which creates a very long lobby entrance to 54th Street. It has been used for many types of productions: opera, theatre, and television. In 1942, CBS purchased the space for the taping of many renowned television shows including Captain KangarooWhat’s My Line?, and The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. CBS sold the space in the late 1970s, and the new owners transformed the space into the most legendary nightclub of the disco era, Studio 54. The club closed in 1986 and remained vacant until 1998, when the Roundabout Theatre Company moved its production of Cabaret into the theatre. Today, it is the company’s permanent home.

Caroline, or Change will be playing next at Studio 54.

Studio 54 has 1,006 seats is one of Roundabout Theatre Company‘s three Broadway theatres.

Studio 54 Theatre History ImageThis theatre was originally built as the Gallo by Fortune Gallo for his San Carlo Opera Company, opening November 7, 1927. It was renamed the New Yorker in 1930 and became a legitimate theatre.

From 1933 to 1936, it became a dinner theatre called the Casino de Paree, managed by Billy Rose. Later, the Federal Theatre Project leased it for its productions and changed its name to the Federal Music Theatre. The Chicago Federal Theatre achieved success here with its production of Swing Mikado, a jazzy version of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, which moved to Broadway at the 44th Street Theatre and competed with Mike Todd’s Hot Mikado starring Bill Robinson across the street at the Broadhurst Theatre. In 1976, the theatre was sold to two nightclub managers, who converted the house into the famous Studio 54, a flamboyant nightclub that became a celebrity hangout.

The Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of Cabaret opened in March 1998 at the Kit Kat Klub (Henry Miller’s Theatre), and it moved to Studio 54 that November, where it ran until January 2004. The revival of Kander and Ebb’s classic won four Tonys, including awards for the performances by Natasha Richardson, Alan Cumming, and Ron Rifkin. It also ran twice as long as the original 1966 production.

In 2003, Roundabout Theatre Company purchased Studio 54. Since then, the theatre has housed a Tony Award–winning revival of Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s Assassins and a Tony-nominated revival of their Pacific Overtures; Tennessee Williams’s A Streetcar Named Desire starring Natasha Richardson; Eugene O’Neill’s A Touch of the Poet; Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill’s The Threepenny Opera; a revival of Harnick and Bock’s The Apple Tree; 110 in the Shade starring Audra McDonald; a revival of Terrence McNally’s The Ritz; a revival of Stephen Sondheim’s Sunday in the Park With George; Rodgers and Hart’s Pal Joey; Waiting for Godot with John Goodman, Nathan Lane, Bill Irwin, and John Glover; Carrie Fisher’s solo show Wishful Drinking; Sondheim on Sondheim; & Noël Coward’s Brief Encounter.

Donna Murphy starred in the new musical The People in the Picture, followed by Jim Parsons in Harvey; a Tony-nominated revival of The Mystery of Edwin Drood; a revival of Roundabout’s 1998 production of Cabaret; Jim Parsons again in An Act of God; Keira Knightley in Thérèse Raquin; Laura Benanti and Zachary Levi in a Tony-nominated revival of She Loves Me; Holiday Inn, The New Irving Berlin Musical; Sweat; John Leguizamo’s Latin History for Morons; a revival of Children of a Lesser God; and Bobby Cannavale, Cherry Jones, and Daniel Radcliffe in the new play The Lifespan of a Fact.
