Stephen Sondheim Theatre

124 W 43rd St, New York City, New York, NY 10036

The Basics

Theatergoers have been enjoying shows at the Sondheim since 1918, when it opened. Attending a performance is the best way to experience the Sondheim, and seats tend to have more legroom than at some of the other theaters. Buy tickets in advance, as popular shows often sell out. If you don’t get tickets, it’s still worth stopping by on a Theater District walking tour or a hop-on hop-off bus tour.
