About Circle In The Square Theatre

The Circle in the Square Theatre is currently running the raw and quirky award-winning production Fun Home. Following an incredible run at the Public Theater, Fun Home moved to Broadway in 2015. Considered one of the most groundbreaking shows to ever hit Broadway, this intricate musical production is based on Alison Bechdel's best- selling graphic memoir. Winner of five 2015 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Alison's story follows the relationship between her and her father. Fun Home is an honest, emotional and touching story about the many fabrics of family. Due to the theater's intimate design by Sayles, with the audience on three sides, Circle in the Square Theatre is the prime location for this production, truly connecting the audience to the story. Directed by Sam Gold, this production is a must-see. Cheap Fun Home tickets are going fast, so be sure to get yours today!

The original Circle in the Square Theatre was founded in 1951 by producer Theodore Mann along with Jose Quintero, Jason Wingreen, Aileen Cramer, Ed Mann and Emily Stevens. At that time, their location was in Greenwich Village, New York, New York. Unable to acquire a theater license at the time, the venue hosted cabaret, and the group's actors and production staff served as waiters if anyone in the audience insisted on purchasing a beverage. The theater moved to a historic building - which is now The Market NYC - several years later and moved again once more before ending up in today's current location on 50th Street.

After the Uris Brothers tore down the famous Capitol Movie House in 1970 to build the Paramount Plaza, architect Alan Sayles designed the new Circle in the Square Theatre after the theaters of the ancient Greeks and Romans. It has remained as one of two theaters inside of the plaza ever since. On Nov. 15, 1972, the theater opened for its very first Broadway production, a revival of Mourning Becomes Electra. The theater is also home to the Circle in the Square Theatre School, an independent non-profit that has been training Broadway actors and actresses since 1961. Circle in the Square Theatre is located at 235 West 50th Street between Broadway and Eighth Street in midtown Manhattan. The theater, which has a capacity of 623 seats, is below street level, complete with an in-house bar, and is one of the only two Broadway houses with a thrust stage.
