About New Amsterdam Theatre

The New Amsterdam Theatre is one of the most iconic venues in the New York City Theatre Scene. Located at 214 West 42nd Street Manhattan, near the south end of Times Square, it has a rich history of theatre excellence. In the modern day, it is managed by Disney Theatrical Productions, hosting stage adaptations of Disney classics such as The Lion King, Mary Poppins and Aladdin.

From an architectural perspective, it is one of the most ‘classic’ looking theatres in New York City. Featuring a Beaux-Arts exterior and an interior designed with Art Nouveau in mind, the New Amsterdam sets a regal atmosphere from first impression to final curtain call.


Back in 1903, the building was first built by A.L. Errlanger and Marcus Klaw – who were hot on the production scene. Titled as the largest theater on Broadway, the venue was off to a flying start. But like many at the time going through the Great Depression, it would be later developed into a movie house.

The building would get it’s next major break in 1997 with Disney taking over and transforming it into the incredible theatre we know today – now fans from all over the world travel to visit as it holds a magical reputation as the oldest theater in Broadway.
