Studio 54 Tickets
Studio 54 has gone through many upheavals since the theater opened as Gallo Opera House in November 1927. It opened with a production of La Boheme, San Carlo Opera Company’s first production, which was an unqualified disaster. The Opera House faced great financial difficulties and soon Fortune Gallo - the impresario - started producing legitimate shows that included Electra, featuring Antoinette Perry, and the Oscar Hammerstein musical - Rainbow. (For the uninitiated - Antoinette Perry is for whom the Tony Awards have been named). However, its bad luck continued and could not shake its reputation for failure. Soon after the stock crash of 1929, the theater was foreclosed and sold. The Continued Bad Luck
The theater was renamed the New Yorker Theater in 1930, but its bad luck continued. It continued to produce flop shows for the next few years. There after it was sold many times over and changed names from Casino de Paris, to the Palladium, and then to Federal Music Theatre, which was restored and run by WPA.
Purchased by CBS in 1942, it was renamed the CBS Radio Playhouse Number 4, and later Studio 52. Until the 1970s, it made radio broadcasts, and television shows, such as The Jack Paar Show, The Jack Benny Show, and The Johnny Carson Show, among others.
It again changed hands in the late 1970s, transformed into a nightclub, was now called Studio 54, and became one of the most famed discos of all times. Closed down in 1986, the club was converted into a venue for rock concerts, and largely neglected.
Studio 54’s luck then changed for the better. In 1998, the theater was leased by the Roundabout Theater Company for the production of Cabaret – its Tony award winning musical. For the next six years and nearly 2,400 performances, the production ran there. It became the third longest musical revival in Broadway history. In the meanwhile, when the theater came up for sale, Roundabout made an offer and purchased this 1015 seat theater on July 23, 2003.The Renovation
After so many ups and downs the venue finally became a permanent home for Roundabout’s Broadway musicals and other special events. Efforts were made to shake its distinctive negative feel, and convert it into a state-of-the-art musical theater. The renovations included upgrading the technical capabilities, and improving amenities for the artist and audience.
Water damaged plaster ceiling and the painted walls were repaired, the stairs in the mezzanine were reconstructed, and soundproof doors were installed throughout the theatre. Detachable raked platforms and seats has given the theater the ability to change over from the cabaret seating to traditional theatre seating configuration, at will.
