The Schoenfeld Theatre opened as the Plymouth October 10, 1917. Designed by Herbert J. Krapp, the Plymouth joined the Booth, Broadhurst, and Shubert Theatres to solidify the Shubert family dominance on a full block of W. 44th and 45th Streets. In 2005, the theatre was renamed for Gerald Schoenfeld, the chairman of the Shubert Organization.

The theatre is currently home to the Tony-winning production, Come From Away, which tells the story of airline travelers who are forever bonded after being stranded in Gander, Newfoundland, on 9/11.

Flip through some of the shows that have played the theatre below:

Come From Away was nominated for seven 2017 Tony Awards, winning the Best Direction of a Musical Tony for Christopher Ashley.
