The Eugene O'Neill Theatre is a Broadway theatre located at 230 West 49th Street in midtown Manhattan. The O’Neill Theatre, named after playwright Eugene O’Neill,[1] is owned and operated by Jujamcyn Theaters. The house can accommodate up to 1,108 guests[1] and has been home to several big hits, such as Big River, Spring Awakening, and the long-running 2011 Tony Award Best Musical winner, The Book of Mormon.[2]

History

Designed by architect Herbert J. Krapp, it was built for the Shuberts as part of a theatre-hotel complex named for 19th- century tragedian Edwin Forrest. The Forrest Theatre opened on November 24, 1925, with the musical Mayflowers as its premiere production.[3]

The venue was renamed the Coronet Theatre in 1945, with renovations by architects Walker & Gillette. In 1959 it was rechristened the O'Neill in honor of the American playwright by then-owner Lester Osterman. It later was purchased by playwright Neil Simon, who sold it to Jujamcyn Theaters in 1982.[4] Jujamcyn is one of the three leading Broadway theatre companies, and since 2009, Jujamcyn Theaters has been owned and operated by Jordan Roth.[5]

The theatre has been closed as of March 12, 2020 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. It does not plan on opening until January 3, 2021.[6]

Box office record

The Book of Mormon achieved the box office record for the Eugene O'Neill Theatre. The production grossed $2,161,225 over nine performances, for the week ending December 1, 2013.[7]
