Some of the notable productions to open at the Broadway Theatre: 'Gypsy' (1959) and 'Annie Get Your Gun' (1966) both starring Ethel Merman; 'Evita' (1979) starring Patti Lupone; and 'Les Miserables' (1987).
In addition to 'Sister Act' which is currently playing the venue, other productions I have experienced at the Broadway Theatre include 'Miss Saigon' (1991); 'La Boheme' (2003) directed by Baz Luhrmann; 'Bombay Dreams' (2004) composed by A.R. Rahman; 'Shrek The Musical' (2008); and the revival of 'Promises, Promises' (2010) starring Kristin Chenoweth and Sean Hayes.
The renaissance exterior of the theatre was resurfaced in polished granite in 1991 when a skyscraper was constructed above the theatre. The interiors boasts one of the more beautiful lobbies with twin staircases whisking patrons to the mezzanine level, chandeliers and ornate decorative features.
The Broadway Theatre is one of seventeen Broadway houses owned by the Shubert Organizaton.
