This Shubert theater was built in 1921

Due to the extremely small plot size

it was created with both the interior

auditorium & stage area on the diagonal

Very strange indeed as little offstage

left or right wings & with only a small

upstage center offstage area useable

This situation limits what productions

can fit in these reduced conditions

The 1100 seats are accommodated in a

unique pattern on 3 levels however

The current production of "Chicago"

is presented as a concert version

with few if any moving parts

Hard to explain the total size of

these required to accomplish it
