Playbill’s Inside the Theatre captures the dazzling architecture and unseen details of the world’s most famous theatres, taking you inside all 40 of Broadway's currently-operating houses.

Created in an Art Noveau style by set designer Ralph Alswang, the Gershwin Theatre opened in 1972 as the Uris, occupying the site of the former Capitol movie palace. The theatre was later renamed after the legendary composer George Gershwin, announced at the 1983 Tony Awards.

The Gershwin is currently the home of Wicked, the Stephen Schwartz-Winnie Holzman musical which opened October 30, 2003, and is the sixth longest-running musical to appear on Broadway.
