Playbill’s 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.
Built in 1923 under architect Herbert J. Krapp, the Imperial Theatre was designed specifically for musicals. In its long history, the Imperial has hosted a series of historic musicals, including the long-running production of Les Miserables.
Currently playing at the theatre is the new Broadway revival of Carousel. The Rodgers and Hammerstein musical officially opened at the Imperial Theatre April 12. The Jack O’Brien-helmed revival stars Tony winner Jessie Mueller as Julie Jordan, Joshua Henry as Billy Bigelow, Renée Fleming as Nettie Fowler, Lindsay Mendez as Carrie Pipperidge, and Jacob Keith Watson as Enoch Snow.
