The Majestic Theatre is one of the largest theaters in Broadway. It seats 1,645 patrons and was designed by the Chanin Brothers in 1927. It's the last of the six buildings the brothers ever constructed. They built it as a three-theatre facility that included the Royale and the John Golden theatres. The theatre was designed by the famous Herbert Krapp, a design that would later be made a New York City landmark. Krapp was inspired by a contemporary Spanish style, with ceramic bricks on the exterior, mixed with his usual Adam-style color scheme of gold and ivory on the interior. In the 1930s, the Shuberts took over ownership of the theatres.
The theatre has housed some of the most famous theatrical shows, including A Little Night Music, The Wiz, 42nd Street, 1776 and South Pacific. It has also passed numerous star studded performances throughout the years. This includes A Wonderful Night star, Cary Grant who was actually going by Archie Leach at the time.
