With a superior seating capacity of 1,650, the Herbert J. Krapp designed former comedy and music hall quickly found use as a musical show-house. At it’s completion in 1923, the theater was briefly one of the largest in the area, and fiftieth of the huge Schubert-owned theater empire. Since 2008, the Imperial has been the home of “Billy Elliot – The Musical”, an open-ended production which has been one of the highest grossing shows on Broadway in recent years.
