About the Venue

The Neil Simon Theatre opened in 1927 as The Alvin. It was built by producers Alex Aarons and Vinton Freedly and designed by Herbert J. Krapp. The producers lost the theater during the Great Depression, at which point it was used by CBS as a radio studio. It became a legitimate theater again after the departure of CBS in the mid-1940s

It was purchased by the Shubert Organization in 1975, and in 1983 it was renamed after playwright Neil Simon.


One bar on the Orchestra, Mezzanine, and lower level where refreshments can be purchased. Bars begin serving 30 mins before performance.
