James M. Nederlander Theatre
The Oriental Theatre opened in 1926 as a movie house and a venue for live performances.
Closed for 17 years, the Oriental Theatre has been elaborately refurbished and reopened to house musical theater.
RAGTIME was the first show on the newly-restored stage. There are 1,250 roomy, comfy seats in the three-tiered house. Sightlines are excellent from almost everywhere in the house. Merchandise stands and concession stands are located on every level. There are also bar areas availble to the theatergoers.
