16. Belasco Theatre

The Belasco Theatre opened in 1907 as the Stuyvesant Theater for impresario David Belasco, and the theater was named after him in 1910. Designed by architect George Keister, the structure’s interior featured Tiffany lighting and ceiling panels, along with murals by artist Everett Shinn. Belsaco had an apartment above the theater,

In 1948, the Belasco changed hands and came under Shubert ownership.Interestingly enough, this venue was also the first widely noticed successful performance of Marlon Brando, where he played a small but crucial role in a Maxwell Anderson production of Truckline Cafe. In 1987, the Belasco was named a New York City Landmark, along with its interior. The 2014 production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch was the theater’s longest running show. It will reopen on October 13, 2021 with performances from Girl From The North Country.
