Broadway Theater Tour: Gershwin Theater

Address: 222 West 51st Street
Seating capacity: 1,933 (large), with one balcony
Currently playing: "Wicked"
Notable for: This is one of Broadway's few theaters built in the modern era; it's one of the very largest theaters on Broadway, and it's suitable for large scale musicals

What I've seen at this theater:
-"Show Boat" directed by Hal Prince (1995, 1996): ****
-"Candide" directed by Hal Prince (1997): **
-"1776" with Brent Spiner (1998): **1/2
-"Oklahoma!" with Patrick Wilson (2002): ***
-"Wicked" with Idina Menzel (2004): ***
