Architecture of the Broadhurst
The Broadhurst Theatre and the neighboring Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (formerly the Plymouth) were Krapp’s first independent commissions, and he designed them to be mirror images of each other from the outside. They were also meant to resemble the style of the neighboring Shubert and Booth theaters, which had been designed by Henry B. Herts, though using more cost-effective brick and terra cotta materials.
