Orpheum Theatre


The Orpheum Theatre is located in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan. Originally established as a theatre in 1904, the venue once played a huge role in the Yiddish theatre scene and was known as the Player’s Theatre. In the 1920s, the building was converted into a movie theatre. The venue reopened as a theatre in November 1959 with Little Mary Sunshine. In the following decades, landmark Off-Broadway productions including Cole Porter’s Anything Goes and Alan Menken and Howard Ashman’s Little Shop of Horrors premiered at the Orpheum Theatre.
