Named after Sam Minskoff and Sons, who built and owned the building, and designed by architects Kahn and Jacobs, the Minskoff Theatre opened in 1973 with a production of “Irene” with Debbie Reynolds. Since 2006, the theatre has hosted the globally acclaimed musical The Lion King. To accommodate the musical, the theatre was renovated in a six-month long process requiring the efforts of over 200 construction experts, craftsmen, and designers. Mariuca Brancoveanu, the principal architectural designer, created an impressive new interior, comprised of the terrazzo walkway through the promenade leading to the theatre. The theatre’s lobby walls are decorated with hand-painted, gold-leaf sculpted tableaus, accompanying the stunning views of Broadway provided by the One Astor Plaza tower.
