Broadway Theater Tour: Vivan Beaumont Theater

Address: 150 West 65th Street
Seating capacity: 1,080 (mid-sized), with one balcony
Currently playing: "South Pacific"
Notable for: This theater is part of the Lincoln Center complex; the theater boasts a classical thrust stage, which is surrounded on three sides by seating; the theater is steeply raked, so the auditorium has a large feel
