The September opening of the new Henry Miller’s Theater with the Roundabout Theater Company’s revival of Bye Bye Birdie marks a notable occasion for New York City. The 1,055 seat theatre is the first entirely new Broadway theater built in the City in over twenty years.

Designed by Cook+Fox Architects in collaboration with theatre consultants Fisher Dachs Associates, the theatre at 124 West 43rd Street (constructed as a part of the Bank of America Tower at Sixth Avenue and 42nd Street) replaces an earlier theater of that same name on this site. The original had suffered decades of haphazard alterations, neglect, and damage during its years as a discotheque in the 1980’s, and could not be saved. The new space will boast numerous amenities, not least of which is its soon to be status as the first green, LEED- certified Broadway performance space in New York.

In addition to meeting the criteria for LEED Gold certification, the theatre is designed to create the highest quality environment for audiences, performers, and production staff and to be a state-of-the-art performance venue.
