It was amazing and Lucas was so knowledgeable about all the Broadway theatres
Everything was memorable. We will recommend this tour to everyone especially to all of our theatre friends that come to New York. I found out all about theatres that I never knew and even my theatre loving kid learned some things too

Architecture of Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre

The theater was designed by architect Herbert J. Krapp, a prolific theater architect and designer, in what was his first independent commission—Krapp would also work on the Winter Garden Theatre and Ed Sullivan Theater (originally Hammerstein's Theater). The interior design motifs subtly reflect those of the more ornate neighboring Shubert and Booth theaters designed by Henry B. Herts.
