New York City is known for its arts and culture and Midtown Manhattan is recognized as the hub for theatergoers who want to catch live performances of some of Broadway’s biggest shows. With 1417 seats the Imperial Theatre has been welcoming theatergoers since 1923. Since its doors first opened, the Imperial has provided the stage for hit shows like Annie Get Your Gun, Fiddler on the Roof and the Broadway icon, Les Miserables.
Although travelers will need tickets to a show to actually check out the theater’s interior, visitors can still step inside the lobby and admire this Broadway gem from outside during a tour of Times Square.
The Imperial Theatre is located at 249 West 45th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues in Midtown Manhattan. It is accessible by taking the bus to Port Authority, or the ACE subway lines to Times Square. It is open daily from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.
