Gershwin Theatre Parking
You’ll find the stunning Gershwin Theatre on Broadway, specifically at 222 West 51st Street in midtown-Manhattan. It opened as the Uris Theatre on November 28, 1972 with the musical Via Galactica. On June 5, 1983, the theatre was rechristened to honor composer George Gershwin and lyricist Ira Gershwin.
The Gershwin Theatre was designed with an Art Nouveau style and is situated at the lower levels of a towering office complex. It is worth mentioning that the Gershwin Theatre boasts the highest seating capacity of any Broadway theatre with 1,933 seats. Additionally, the American Theatre Hall of Fame is located in its lobby.
The Gershwin Theatre has played host to some of the most memorable productions such as The King and I; Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street; Singin' in the Rain; Starlight Express; and Fiddler on the Roof. Right now, the blockbuster musical Wicked is playing on its incredibly beautiful stage.
Wicked is a musical that starts before and continues after Dorothy's arrival in Oz from Kansas. It tells the story from the perspective of the witches, the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of the North. Wicked has been nominated for 10 Tony Awards in 2004, including Best Musical. It also received the 2005 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.
