Richard Rodgers Theatre | Seating Chart, Tickets, Tips and more

The Richard Rodgers Theater, located at 226 West 46th Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenue, is a popular Broadway theatre that is currently playing host to one of the biggest musical blockbusters, Hamilton. The theatre was originally called 46th Street Theatre, with the Shuberts taking ownership from Irwin Chanin in 1931. After a couple of changes in ownership, in 1981, the theatre was purchased and renovated by the Nederlander Organization, who in 1990 changed the house's name in memory of the composer Richard Rodgers. The theatre opened in 1924 with a production of The Greenwich Village Follies and has since hosted some iconic Broadway musicals in its almost decade-long existence. Some of the notable productions include, Guys and Dolls, Damn Yankees, Redhead, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, 1776, Nine, Raisin, Lost in Yonkers, Chicago, In The Heights, and The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess.

Since 13th July 2015, Richard Rodgers Theater has been the home to Hamilton. Hamilton is the story of the unlikely Founding Father determined to make his mark on the new nation as hungry and ambitious as he is. While creator Lin-Manuel Miranda has moved on from the production in the capacity of an actor, the talented cast and foot-tapping music is still making the show a smash hit.
