Theater History

The Shubert Theatre had its genesis in the New Theatre, an “art” playhouse located on Central Park West that was devoted to serious repertory drama. Although the project was a critical and commercial flop, the New Theatre Group, which included Lee Shubert, leased a plot of land between 44th and 45th street to construct a new venue. The plan was abandoned, but Lee Shubert and Winthrop Ames, a former New Theatre partner, acquired a lease for the site, and built two adjoining playhouses there. Lee and J.J. operated the larger of the two auditoriums, which they named the Sam S. Shubert Memorial Theatre to commemorate their brother, who had died in May 1905. Ames managed the smaller Booth Theatre.

Hell's Kitchen at the Shubert Theatre

Hell's Kitchen

There’s a place where the rhythm of the city is music, where every corner has a story, and every window is a kaleidoscope. Where a girl can step out of her apartment and find the world. That’s HELL’S KITCHEN, a new musical from 15-time Grammy® Award winner Alicia Keys that’s about to make Broadway feel brand new. 

"Enormously ambitious...Ali's discovery that art is love, with or without the guy, is too rich not to reach a bigger audience, and a million more girls on fire." - The New York Times 

"'Hell's Kitchen' is a sparkling story paying homage to New York, to that beautiful and heartbreaking transition between girlhood and womanhood and to the women who hold our hands through it all." - Variety
