The Shubert Organization, which owns 17 of the 40 Broadway theatres, plans to build a state-of-the-art, 1,500-seat Broadway theatre between West 45th and 46th streets, according to the New York Post.



The company, which recently made a bid for Off-Broadway's New World Stages complex, told the Post that they are "in negotiations" to fill the space on 8th Avenue, which they own — between Frankie & Johnnie's steakhouse and the Shuberts' Imperial Theatre.

The site is now partly filled with tents selling trinkets, and the area recently housed Kazino, the supper club-style venue built especially for Off-Broadway's Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.

The Shuberts built Off-Broadway's Little Shubert Theatre in 2002. The other theatres the company owns are the Ambassador (Chicago), the Barrymore (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), the Belasco (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), the Booth (The Elephant Man), the Broadhurst (Mamma Mia!), the Broadway (Cinderella), the Cort (This Is Our Youth), the Golden (A Delicate Balance), the Imperial (Les Misérables), the Bernard B. Jacobs (Once), the Longacre (You Can't Take It With You), the Lyceum (Disgraced), the Majestic (The Phantom of the Opera), the Music Box (Pippin), the Gerald Schoenfeld (It's Only a Play), the Shubert (Matilda the Musical) and the Winter Garden (recent home of Rocky).
