The Broadhurst Theatre was opened on 27 September 1917. The theatre looks gorgeous with a four-star design along with the banner of the event.
James Earl Jones was starred on Broadway in February 2008. He acted as the big daddy in a Pulitzer Prize-winning drama titled “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”. Tennessee Williams wrote the great drama and Debbie Allen directed that. It was a limited-run, all-African-American production that was organized and initiated at the Broadhurst Theatre.
in the mid-year of 2010, Al Pacino came back to the stage. He started with “The Merchant of Venice” playing the role of Shylock. This was a Shakespeare in the Park production. In October, this famous production moved to Broadway at the Broadhurst Theatre. The show turned out to be a blockbuster as it earned a million USD ($) in its first week. Along with the movie, Pacino’s performance was so stunning that he was nominated for Best Leading Actor in a Play in Tony Award.
