Eugene O'Neill Theatre Tours

Eugene O'Neill Theatre
Originally known as the Forrest Theatre and later the Coronet Theatre, the Eugene O’Neill Theatre—renamed in honor of the illustrious American playwright—has been entertaining guests since 1925. Book a show to see one of the most desired mid-sized theaters in New York, which has hosted such hits as Sweeney Todd and The Book of Mormon.
 
The Basics
The Eugene O’Neill Theatre was designed by architect Herbert J. Krapp and built for the Shubert Company as part of a theater-hotel complex. It was designed in the Georgian style, which prized symmetry as well as Greek and Roman details. The theater has seated capacity of 1,108 seats, with some additional standing room capacity.
 
To see the outside of the theater, join a walking tour around Broadway and the Theater District, which may pass by the Eugene O’Neill Theatre. For a full view of the more ornate architectural details, prebook a show at the theater.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Children under the age of 4 are not allowed inside the theater.
  • There are no elevators or escalators in the theater.
  • Standing room tickets are available when a performance is sold out.
  • There is no coat check, but large bags can be stored for a fee.
  • The seats are on the small side; taller visitors should opt for aisle or first-row seats.
  • The theater is not fully wheelchair accessible, but there are designated areas for wheelchair users.
 
How to Get There

The Eugene O’Neill Theatre is located on West 49th Street, between Broadway and Eighth Avenue. By subway, take the C or E to 50th Street, the 1 to 50th Street, or the N, R, or W to 49th Street. Or take a bus running along Seventh or Eighth avenues.
 
When to Get There
The theater’s box office hours vary depending on the show, but it is typically open from 10am to 8pm Monday to Saturday and 12pm to 7pm on Sunday. It’s best to arrive early as there may be lines for the box office or theater concessions. Latecomers are seated at the theater’s discretion.
 
The Theater’s Historical Connection with Playwrights

The Eugene O’Neill Theatre is named after one of America’s most renowned playwrights, author of classics such as The Iceman Cometh and Anna Christie. For a while, the theater was also owned by another famous playwright, Neil Simon, and it hosted a number of his hit plays and musicals, including California Suite, The Odd Couple, and Chapter Two.
