The Playhouse Theatre was a Broadway theater at 137 West 48th Street in midtown Manhattan, New York City. Charles A. Rich was the architect. It was built in 1911 for producer William A. Brady who also owned the nearby 48th Street Theatre. After Brady died in 1944, it was sold to the Shubert Organization. From 1949 to 1952, it was an ABC Radio studio.

Sauce for the Goose was the opening production on April 15, 1911, closing after 2 performances that day.

The Playhouse Theatre was also used for interiors and exteriors in the Mel Brooks film, The Producers (1967) for staging their musical, Springtime for Hitler.

In 1969, the Playhouse Theatre was razed to accommodate the Rockefeller Center expansion and the construction of 1221 Avenue of the Americas.[1]
