Marquis Theatre (1986) New York, NY | Playbill


The Marquis Theatre, designed by John C. Portman, Jr., opened in the heart of Times Square in 1986. Its development forced the demolition of five theatre houses — the Astor, the original Helen Hayes, the Morosco, the Bijou, and the Gaiety — and faced protests and criticism. Nonetheless, the modern, high-tech theatre has become a Broadway favorite for musical productions.
