John Golden Theatre Information:

Location: New York, New York
Address: 252 W. 45th St.
Capacity: approx 800
Opened: 1927

The John Golden Theatre at 45th Street was originally dubbed the Theatre Masque and was included in a three-theatre complex (which also featured the Royale and the Majestic) built by the Chanin Brothers. The new venue was designed for small-scale dramas and artistic plays, and the theatre was appointed with only 804 seats. Herbert J. Krapp was named the architect for the project, and he designed the humble structure using a Mission Revival style that's indicative of much of the Spanish-influenced architecture that can be found on the West Coast. The inside of the brick building is decorated mostly in pastel shades of blue and red, and the venue was designed with comfort and accessibility in mind. With a large orchestra section and dual mezzanine seating, the theatre resembles many of the larger performance halls on Broadway, but has an intimate quality that makes it ideal for legitimate theatre. The building would keep its original name until 1937, when producer John Golden bought the theatre and decided to name it after himself.

The theatre's first production was called Puppets of Passion, written by Rosso di San Secondo and starring Frank Morgan. Unfortunately, the show would suffer from a slow pace and lack of support and would falter after only 12 performances. The John Golden Theatre would show a number of plays and dramas during its early years, but it would also accommodate musical productions as the genre became more popular with audiences.

One of the venue's earliest hits was a dark drama called Rope's End, by Patrick Hamilton in 1929. The show followed the murder of an Oxford undergraduate and inspired a lesser-known Alfred Hitchcock film called Rope. The theatre would go on to achieve further success in 1941 when the thriller Angel Street premiered. The play ran for 1,295 performances, making it the longest-running nonmusical play in the venue's history. In the 1980s, the John Golden Theatre managed to showcase three Pulitzer Prize-winning shows in a row - Beth Henley's Crimes of the Heart, Marsha Norman's 'night Mother and David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross. However, the playhouse would receive its biggest hit in 2003 with the arrival of Avenue Q, written by Robert Lopez, Jeff Marx and Jeff Whitty. The outlandish musical went on to garner a number of Tony awards and captured the house record with an astounding 2,534 performances.

The John Golden Theatre's distinguished history and impressive design have allowed it to accommodate dramas and musicals alike, and will continue to amaze audiences with its inspired productions.
