Biltmore added to historic registry

Theater joins New Amsterdam, Carnegie Hall on list

The Biltmore Theater, the Broadway home of the non-profit Manhattan Theater Club, has been selected for the National Register of Historic Places.

Other legit venues on the list include the New Amsterdam Theater, Radio City Music Hall, Carnegie Hall, and the Apollo Theater.

Manhattan Theater Club’s plays have been performed at the Biltmore since Oct. 2003, when the venue re-opened after a two-year, $35 million renovation. A revival of Craig Lucas’ play “Reckless” is the current tenant.

Previously, the Biltmore was home to such shows as “Hair” and “Barefoot in the Park.”
