Group to nab renovated Henry Miller Theater
The Roundabout looks likely to score a third Broadway house when the Henry Miller Theater reopens next fall.
Newly renovated midtown venue, with around 1,000 seats, will join the Roundabout’s two other Rialto venues, the American Airlines Theater and Studio 54. Nonprofit also has an Off Broadway space, the Laura Pels.
Roundabout would reportedly lease the Henry Miller for 20 years. Aim would be to use one of the company’s three spaces for extended runs of popular Roundabout shows — such as last season’s hit “The Pajama Game”
or, for that matter, the Sam Medes revival of “Cabaret,” which the org may revive again in the future. “Cabaret” opened at the Henry Miller in
1998 before it moved to Studio 54.
Owners of the Henry Miller are the Durst Organization and Bank of America. Theater is part of a larger renovation project that includes a new Bank of America Tower.
Last show to play the Henry Miller before it shuttered for construction was “Urinetown,” which closed in 2004.
