Richard Rodgers Theatre New York
Richard Rodgers Theatre
The Richard Rodgers Theatre, is a Broadway theater in New York City, built by Irwin Chanin in 1925. When it was first opened, it was called Chanin's 46th Street Theatre. Chanin almost immediately leased it to the Shuberts, who bought the building outright in 1931 and renamed it the 46th Street Theatre. In 1982, it was purchased and renovated by the Nederlander Organization, who in 1990 changed the name to the Richard Rodgers Theatre in memory of the composer Richard Rodgers. The building is located at 226 W 46th Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenue. The Disney musical Tarzan played at the Richard Rodgers from 10 May 2006 until July 8, 2007. In The Heights is currently playing at the theatre.
