Get Directions


Built in 1903 by Daniel Frohman, the Lyceum is the oldest Broadway theater in New York. The architect had an apartment over the stage where he could keep an eye on the action. The Great Depression forced Frohman into bankruptcy. He sold the theater to Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, who rented his apartment back to Frohman for the enormous price of $1 a year. The best seats in the house are located behind Row H in the orchestra, Rows A through D in the mezzanine, and Rows A and B in the balcony. The Lyceum has a seating capacity of 913 to 924.
