Roseland Ballroom, the famed concert venue on 52nd Street that has been home to many Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS events, including the annual Broadway Bares, will close its doors in April, according to Billboard.
No official announcement has been made, and representatives at the Roseland Ballroom have not responded to Playbill.com's request for comment.
The venue, a converted skating rink, is owned by developer Larry Ginsberg and booked by Live Nation. Initially founded in Philadelphia, PA, in 1917, Roseland was moved to 1658 Broadway at 51st Street in New York in 1919 and opened at its 52nd Street location in 1958.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
