Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre History

Built in 1917-1918 the Plymouth Theatre was built by the three Shubert brother who leased it to producer Arthur Hopkins. The theater house was thought to be impressive once completed and designed with the architecture of Herbert J Krapp, who was hired to keep the final construction similar to the neighboring Shubert and Booth theaters, which were designed by Henry B Herts. The idea was to build a quality and impressive play house with a less expensive approach. The same stylings may be noticed in the Broadhurst Theatre which was designed around the same time with the same ideals in design and build.

The Plymouth was intended by Arthur Hopkins to be the venue for high production shows, which the theater was able to capitalize on, such as John Barrymore in "Redemption;" and John and Lionel Barrymore in "The Jest;". Hopkins passes away and The Shuberts regained full control of The Plymouth in 1948 and still are the owners of this New York City landmark (1987). In 2006 the name was changed to Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre and continue to play popular Broadway Musicals.

1917 opens the Plymouth Theatre with the production, A Successful Calamity, a comedy created by Clare Kummer's starring William Gillette and Estelle Winwood.

The seating capacity is 1,080
