The Marquis Theatre is a Broadway theatre on the third floor of the New York Marriott Marquis at 210 West 46th Street in Midtown Manhattan, New York City.


The Marquis opened July 9, 1986, with a series of concerts by Shirley Bassey. The 1611-seat venue was designed by developer/architect John C. Portman, Jr. Because construction of the hotel involved the demolition of five theaters – the original Helen Hayes, the Morosco, the Bijou, and remnants of the Astor and the GaietyNew York City officials permitted Portman to construct the new property only if he agreed to include a theater within the structure. It presently is one of nine operated by the Nederlander Organization.[1]

In the 2006 production of The Drowsy Chaperone, the Man In Chair remarks that the show within the show originally played the Morosco theatre, "but they tore it down and put up a hotel," which earned an enormous laugh from theatre buffs in the audience. The line was added specifically for the Broadway run and is not used in regional productions.

According to Forbes, Vornado Realty Trust, which leases the Broadway theater to the Nederlander Organization, sold almost half of its stake to a group of investors as part of a larger deal in 2019.[2]

The theater was closed on March 12, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the theater will reopen in April 2022 with the revival of Beetlejuice.
