Et teater som er så lite at det en gang i tiden bare ble kalt The Little Theater…

Det var for over 100 år siden. Siden den gang har teateret skiftet navn flere ganger, blitt forandret og oppusset, stengt og åpnet, og stengt igjen. Teateret som nå heter Helen Hayes Theater gjenåpner i disse dager som ideelt foretak. Man skal ikke tjene penger. Man skal tjene kunsten!

Teateret har adresse 240 W 44th Street, midt i Manhattans Theater District. Det vil oppføre skuespill av levende amerikanske dramatikere – i kontrast til det øvrige Broadway som for tiden domineres av musikaler, nyoppsetninger og britiske importer.

Vi håper å kunne tilby billetter til alle forestillinger også ved Helen Hayes Theater. Broadway trenger et teater som Helen Hayes Theater. Dette blir spennende!

The theater was so small, it was named the Little Theater. That was 106 years ago, and since then it has been reincarnated many times — renamed, repurposed, rehabilitated.Now known as the Helen Hayes Theater, the smallest house on Broadway is about to reopen yet again, this time run by a nonprofit, becoming the sixth of today’s 41 Broadway theaters to operate outside the commercial marketplace.The 589-seat playhouse has a new mission: Second Stage Theater, the nonprofit group that now owns the structure, says it will be used to present work by living American playwrights, a form of counterprogramming at a time when Broadway is dominated by musicals, revivals and British imports.
