Venue Details

The Beacon Theatre NYC is the older sister venue of the world-famous Radio City Music Hall, both establishments created by theatrical impresario Samuel "Roxy" Rothafel. The Beacon Theatre NYC officially opened in 1929 and was originally used as a space for vaudeville acts, musical productions, drama, opera and movies. The venue gained immediate and widespread acclaim for its perfect acoustics, and quite remarkably, that very same, original sound system still operates at The Beacon Theatre NYC today.

Over the years, the Beacon Theatre NYC has played host to many of the world's most influential people and acts. The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Queen, James Taylor and Radiohead are just a few of the musical talents featured on the Beacon Theatre schedule in the past. Other noteworthy events at The Beacon Theatre NYC include teaching classes by his Holiness, the Dalai Lama, a private concert by the Rolling Stones in honor of Bill Clinton's 60th birthday, and standout performances of "Madame Butterfly" and "Ballet on Broadway."

Its unique design, legendary reputation and unparalleled acoustics all combine to make the Beacon Theatre NYC a true cultural icon, and a much sought-after venue for artists from a wide variety of art forms.
