Get Directions


This Broadway theater wasn't named for Ethel Barrymore; it was built for her. The Shuberts were so enamored to have her starring in their production of the play, The Kingdom of God, that in 1928 they built the theater for her. The Shuberts still own the Barrymore and keep it in wonderful shape, especially the beautiful crystal chandelier which hangs from the ceiling. The best seats are in the orchestra through Row J and no further to the side than seat 8 on the right and seat 7 on the left. The front mezzanine is also a good seating choice. The theater has a seating capacity of 1,096.
