About Studio 54
The famed Studio 54 on 54th Street has a very storied history. The venue was built in 1927 as the Gallo Opera House, and the space later served as a television studio for CBS. In the ‘70s it was a legendary, exclusive discotheque. Today, Studio 54 is Roundabout Theatre Company’s Broadway house for plays, musicals, and special events. The current building harkens to its past with a long, marbled lobby from its opera days. The ornate domed ceiling that once held a disco ball is now the pinnacle view in the theater’s auditorium. Its design is a mix of both demure and grit, the elegant detailing mixed with leopard print carpeting and cabaret table lamps on the mezzanine.
