Building Of The Day–Helen Hayes Theater

Join Archtober for our inaugural family-friendly Building of the Day tour at 3:30pm on October 15th, 2018! Guided by a CFA Design Educator and a Rockwell Group architect, families will learn about this unique theater, discovering its historic and contemporary significance as Broadway’s littlest theater! This tour is only for students in grades 5-8, accompanied by an adult.

In 2015, Second Stage Theater purchased the landmarked Hayes Theater on Broadway, with a goal of dedicating it to contemporary works of theater by living American playwrights. After a two-year restoration by Rockwell Group, it reopened again in February 2018. A modern, approachable design vocabulary references the Hayes’s heritage as well as Second Stage’s contemporary aesthetic. The most striking intervention is an immersive transformation of the auditorium, with a handcrafted, pixelated environmental mural.
