Palace Theatre Tours

Palace Theatre
Originally opened as a vaudeville house in 1913, the Palace Theatre has since undergone renovations to become the modern, celebrated theater that stands today. Over the years, the theater has staged numerous Tony Award–winning shows and lauded musicals—from Beauty and the Beast to Aida—earning it a well-deserved Broadway reputation.

The Basics
The best way to experience the Palace Theatre is by seeing a show. Most visitors prebook tickets to secure seats or stop by the nearby TKTS booth to see if same-day show tickets are available. If you're not visiting the theater for a show, you can always pass by on a Theater District tour. Private tours are a great way to hear classic Broadway stories and see the city's landmark houses.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Leave the luggage at home—if your bag can't fit easily with you at your seat, it won't be allowed in the theater.
  • Make sure to arrive on time, since latecomers are seated at the back of the theater, at the discretion of management.
  • The theater offers wheelchair seating in the orchestra, rear mezzanine, and balcony sections; companion seats are available.
  • Refreshments are offered at the theater, at bars on the main lobby, mezzanine, and balcony levels.

How to Get There
The most convenient way to get to the theater is by subway. Take the N, R, Q, or W train to the 49th Street station, or the B, D, or F train to the 47th–50th Streets Rockefeller Center station. Find the theater a short walk from either subway stop, at 1564 Broadway, just north of Times Square.

When to Get There
As with most Broadway theaters, the Palace Theatre stages multiple shows weekly and is typically dark one day each week. If you're visiting for a show, make sure to arrive early to pick up your tickets and grab a drink before the performance. Expect more ticket availability earlier in the week—since weekend performances are most popular—and during New York's slowest season for visitors, from January through March.

What to See Around Broadway
Since the Theater District is packed with must-see attractions, you can make the most of your visit to the Palace Theatre by exploring Broadway. Let your feet lead the way as you pass dozens of landmark theaters. Be sure to stroll through the heart of Times Square—at the intersection of Seventh Avenue and Broadway—and stop at the historic New York Public Library, located on bustling 42nd Street.
