The Music Box Theatre opened in 1921 and had a very unique concept, as it was supposed to put on one new Broadway show per year. This worked out for a long time, and a variety of musicals were shown until just recently. It is one of the smaller theaters on Broadway, seating 990 people (plus 35 in the Orchestra Pit).

The story behind the Music Box Theatre is exciting: theater producer Sam Harris made Irving Berlin, a friend of his and a very popular songwriter in his day, an offer to find a theater in exchange for developing a musical. The show written by Irving Berlin here was Music Box Revue, and so the theater got its name.

Ticket information

It was designed by architect Charles Howard Crane with E. George Kiehler; they wanted to create a theater that did not look like many other theaters in New York. They opted for a delicate neo-Georgian style that looks more like a mansion than a classic opulent theater. I think they did very well!

Music Box Theatre Seating Plan

On the Music Box Theatre seating plan, you’ll see that seats are divided between the Orchestra (538 seats) and Mezzanine (455 seats) sections. In addition, there is space for 16 people in the boxes, and there are 16 standing places. The Orchestra is suitable for wheelchairs; however, the Mezzanine is not.

Where Are the Best Seats at Music Box Theatre Located?

The Music Box is a relatively small theater and you’ll have great views from pretty much any seat. For the very best view though, we personally recommend sitting in the mezzanine section. Why? Seeing the musical from a bird’s-eye view, we promise you’ll get to appreciate the performances and its special effects even more (no spoilers!). If you choose orchestra seats, we typically recommend rows H to M, as you should never sit too close to the stage!
