About the Venue

When it opened in 1972, the then Uris Theatre was the first large Broadway theater erected since the Earl Carroll in 1931. Designed by set designer Ralph Alswang, it is located at the front of a large office building.

In 1983, during the Tony Awards, the venue was renamed after famed composer George Gershwin.


There are two bars located on the second floor and two bars located on the fourth floor. Water is the only beverage permitted in the auditorium unless the soda is in the capped cup available at the bar.
