The Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre is a Broadway theatre, previously known as the Plymouth Theatre, located at 236 West 45th Street (George Abbott Way) in Midtown Manhattan and renamed in 2005 in honor of Gerald Schoenfeld.

The building was designed by architect Herbert J. Krapp to resemble the neighboring Shubert and Booth theatres, both of which were designed by Henry B. Herts in Spanish revival style.[1] It was constructed by the Shubert brothers in 1917–18, christened the Plymouth Theatre, and leased to producer Arthur Hopkins. He intended it to be a venue for legitimate plays starring notable actors such as John and Lionel Barrymore. The premiere production was A Successful Calamity, a comedy with William Gillette and Estelle Winwood.

After Hopkins died in 1948, control of the theatre returned to the Shuberts, who still own the property, which was designated a New York landmark in 1987. The 1,080-seat house was renamed after Gerald Schoenfeld, chairman of the Shubert Organization, in 2005.

The theatre temporarily closed on March 12, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It reopened on September 21, 2021, with Come From Away returning for regular performances.
