Studio 54 was originally built as the Gallo Opera House in 1927 and transformed into the New Yorker Theatre in 1930.
CBS purchased the space in 1942 and made it the home of renowned television shows like "The Johnny Carson Show." CBS sold the space in the late 1970s, and the new owners transformed the space into the most legendary nightclub of the disco-era, Studio 54. The club closed in 1986 and became a venue for rock concerts until it eventually closed completely in the late 1980s. The space remained vacant until 1998, when Roundabout moved its landmark production of Cabaret into the neglected theatre-turned-studio-turned-nightclub. Today, Studio 54 is a permanent home for Roundabout Theatre Company.
Photography and recording devices of any kind inside the theatre are strictly prohibited by law. Please turn off all electronic devices when entering Studio 54.*Please note Studio 54 is wheelchair accessible on the orchestra level only.
