Stage 42 Tours and Activities

Called The Little Shubert Theatre when it opened in 2002, Stage 42 is notable for being the first off-Broadway theater owned by the century-old Shubert Organization and their first to open in New York City since 1928. The theater hosts contemporary productions, with past hits including the comedy Under My Skin and the Harry Potter parody Potted Potter.

In spite of the theater’s small size, the stage is of a size comparable to other Broadway theaters, and the theater has a well-configured auditorium with stadium seating, which means you don’t have to worry about being able to see past the person in front of you. As well as excellent sightlines, theatergoers enjoy proximity to the stage and an intimate ambiance.
