  • The Marquis Theatre is a Broadway theatre located at 46th Street Between Broadway and Eighth Avenue in midtown-Manhattan. Situated on the third floor of the Marriott Marquis Hotel, the 1611-seat venue was designed by developer/architect John C. Portman, Jr. Because construction of the hotel involved the demolition of five theaters – the original Helen Hayes, the Morosco, the Bijou, and remnants of the Astor and the Gaiety – New York City officials permitted Portman to construct the new property only if he agreed to include a theater within the structure. It presently is one of nine operated by the Nederlander Organization. The Marquis - with state-of-the-art backstage facilities and a sleekly modern auditorium - opened July 9, 1986, with a series of concerts by Shirley Bassey. The stage version of White Christmas returned from November 13, 2009 through January 13, 2010. The previous production, the Dolly Parton musical, 9 to 5 closed September 6, 2009. The new Twyla Tharp dance musical, Come Fly Away, based on the music of Frank Sinatra, opened officially March 25, 2010. However, due to low ticket sales, the production closed September 5, 2010.
