August Wilson Theatre New York

Located in central Manhattan, The August Wilson Theatre was built in 1925, when it was known as The Guild Theatre. It was later renamed to honor respected playwright August Wilson, paying homage to his influence on American theater.

You can find the theater in the heart of Midtown Manhattan’s Theater District, close to iconic tourist attractions, including Times Square and the Empire State Building. It has a 1,200-seat capacity and offers an eclectic range of performances, from high drama to world-famous musicals.

One of the finest theatres on Broadway, August Wilson Theatre has been entertaining audiences since 1925! First opening as the Guild Theatre, with a production of George Bernard Shaw’s Caesar and Cleopatra, August Wilson Theatre is a special and intimate venue, known for its phenomenal productions, great sight lines and amazing acoustics!

Taking its current namesake in honor of internationally respected, Pulitzer Prize-winning American playwright August Wilson two weeks after he passed away, this stunning and historic venue has been a consistent source of first-rate shows and performances over the years, with Annie, My Fair Lady, Little Shop of Horrors, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Our Town, and many more taking to the August Wilson Theatre stage!

It is fully accessible to all patrons, with wheelchair-friendly areas and comfortable seating across all levels. With unforgettable performances from My Fair Lady to Mean Girls, it offers the perfect New York night out for viewers of all tastes and budgets.
