Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre Tours

Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre
Built in 1927 and named the Royale, today’s Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre is a well-loved Broadway stage. Numerous lauded plays have graced the house, from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat to Tom Stoppard’s Rock ‘n’ Roll. Go catch a show, and marvel at the venue’s Spanish styling and original interior murals.

The Basics
The best way to experience the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre is to attend a performance. Check the calendar and book your ticket in advance, since shows at the Jacobs often sell out. If you don’t plan on seeing a show, you can always pass by and learn about New York theater history on a Theater District walking tour.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Theater lovers won’t be disappointed with a show at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre—which has been staging plays for nearly 100 years.
  • Spontaneous theatergoers should try their luck at the TKTS kiosk in Times Square, which offers same-day tickets at a discount.
  • Though the theater isn’t fully wheelchair-accessible, the orchestra section is.
  • Arrive on time or risk losing your seat.

How to Get There
The easiest way to reach the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre is by subway. Take the N, Q, R, W, 7, 1, 2, or 3 train to the centrally located Times Square-42nd Street stop. Alternatively, take the A, C, or E train to the 42nd Street-Port Authority Bus Terminal stop. The theater is a short walk from either station, on West 45th Street between Broadway and Eighth avenues.

When to Get There
Performances at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre are typically staged Tuesday through Sunday. Tickets are harder to find in spring and early summer. For fewer crowds, plan to see a show in July—the Tony Awards are over, and new shows don’t open until fall.

Visit the Museum of Modern Art

Just a short distance from the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre is the popular Museum of Modern Art. This cultural mecca is a worthy stop for any art enthusiast, with its temporary exhibitions, daily film screenings, and outdoor courtyard brimming with sculptures. On the way, take a selfie with Robert Indiana’s famous LOVE sculpture, at the corner of West 55th Street and Sixth Avenue.
