The Winter Garden Theatre opened in 1911 and is located between 50th and 51st Street directly on Broadway. It was the first theater in New York purchased by the Shubert Organization – there are now over 20 in New York City alone. It seats a total of 1,600 people, with the Orchestra section making up the largest part with 1,045 seats.

As you can see from the seating plan of the Winter Garden Theater, the auditorium is very wide compared to many other theaters in New York. This gives you a really good view of the stage from many seats.
