Inside the Theatre, the photo feature series that documents Broadway’s historic playhouses, continues with Studio 54.
Playbill’s new photo series Inside the Theatre captures the dazzling architecture and unseen details of the world’s most famous theatres, taking you inside all 41 of the Broadway houses.
Studio 54 opened as the Gallo Opera Theatre in 1927, eventually housing Antoinette Perry in Electra. It was transformed into the famed disco Studio 54 in 1977 and later restored and returned to legitimate theatre in the late 1990s in a $12 million renovation for Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of Cabaret. The theatre currently stands as Studio 54, owned by the Roundabout Theatre.
