The Samuel J. Friedman Theatre
The Manhattan Theatre Club purchased the Biltmore Theatre in 2001 as a Broadway home for its productions. After renovations, it re-opened in October 2003. With 650 seats the Friedman has about two-thirds of the capacity of the old Biltmore Theatre, although it now boasts modern conveniences such as elevators and meeting rooms. The theatre was renamed the "Samuel J. Friedman Theatre" on September 4, 2008 in honor of Broadway publicist Samuel Friedman.
New York City Center, Stage I & Stage II
In 1984, the Manhattan Theatre Club moved to New York City Center's lower level. The Manhattan Theatre Club performance space comprises a 299-seat theatre with fixed seating (Stage I) and a 150-seat studio theatre with variable seating configurations (Stage II).
