Theater History

Originally built by the real-estate magnates the Chanin Brothers and called the Theatre Masque when it opened in 1927, it was renamed in 1937 when it was sold to the Shuberts and John Golden took over the management of the theater. Recent productions include Prima Facie, Topdog/Underdog, Hangmen, Thoughts of a Colored Man, Slave Play, Hillary and Clinton, The Waverly Gallery, Three Tall Women, A Doll’s House Part 2, and Eclipsed.

Direct from the sold-out Off-Broadway run, David Adjmi’s Stereophonic, featuring original music by Arcade Fire’s Will Butler, zooms in on a music studio in the mid-1970s, where an up-and-coming rock band recording a new album finds itself suddenly on the cusp of superstardom. Will the ensuing pressures spark their breakup — or their breakthrough? Featuring original music by Arcade Fire’s Will Butler, this intimate, electric play mines the agony and the ecstasy of creation. “Critic's Pick! Adjmi ingeniously weaves sound and story into something as granular as it is operatic... A relentlessly compelling production by Daniel Aukin that has the grit of a documentary... as rich and lustrous as they come. You could even call it platinum.” — Jesse Green, The New York Times
