The Brooks Atkinson Theatre is a Broadway theater located at 256 West 47th Street in Manhattan.

Designed by architect Herbert J. Krapp, it was constructed as the Mansfield Theatre by the Chanin brothers in 1926. After 1933, the theatre fell into relative disuse until 1945, when Michael Myerberg bought and leased it to CBS for television productions. Known as CBS Studio 59, the theater played host to the long-running panel shows What's My Line? and I've Got a Secret.[1] In 1960, it was renamed after the former New York Times theater critic, Brooks Atkinson, and returned to legitimate use. The Nederlander Organization purchased part-ownership of the Atkinson in 1967.[2]

In 2000, the interior was refurbished with restored decorative finishes by EverGreene Architectural Arts, and now the theatre is once again illuminated by the original chandelier that had been removed over 40 years prior. It has 1,069 seats and is one of the Nederlander Organization's nine Broadway houses.
