About the show

Take the exclusive tour of Broadway’s oldest theatre! More…

Opened in 1903 (just ahead of the Lyceum and New Amsterdam Theatres), the Hudson is the oldest theater currently open on Broadway...but it hasn’t always been a part of the Great White Way.

From a television studio to the home of "The Tonight Show" to a renovated Broadway house, Hudson Theatre has a fascinating 115 year history...you’ll learn all about it on our tour!
