About Helen Hayes Theatre

The Helen Hayes Theatre has had a number of names. It opened as the Winthrop Ames in 1912. Later names included the Little, Anne Nichols’ Little, Times Hall and finally, in 1983, the Helen Hayes Theatre. Because of its small size, this theatre, now owned and operated Martin Markinson & Donald Tick, has been ideal for intimate shows.

We ate dinner at Becco, Lydia Bastianich's place, it was okay. Thought it would be better but it was just o-kay. But they do have unlimited hand made pasta dinner for $22 something which includes an app of salad or antipasti. If you want super delicious pasta, go to Babbo. That place is awesome.

They don't start seating until less than a half hour before the curtain so don't get there too early or you'll be standing in a line. There is no reason to do that.

My husband and I ate at a local bar, during happy hour. We had appetizers and beers, and then went on to the show.
