Rock of Ages


Constructed on the site of the third Madison Square Garden (1925-1968), New World Stages was originally built as the Loews Cineplex Entertainment movie theater (1994-2001) in Worldwide Plaza. Following substantial renovations, the theater re-opened as Dodger Stages in 2004 and was renamed New World Stages on March 16, 2006. The theater complex has housed many commercial theatrical productions, as well as numerous corporate events, readings, and concerts.



The architects were Beyer, Blinder, and Belle. The theatre designers were Sachs Morgan, and the interior designer was Klara Zieglerova. The largest Off-Broadway theater size in New York, Stage 3’s blue velvet seats in a traditional orchestra/ mezzanine arrangement invite audiences to enjoy their favorite productions in an intimate environment, with ample leg room and excellent sightlines.
