The New Amsterdam on West 42nd Street, designed by Henry Herts and Hugh Tallant in 1903 as one of the first buildings with an Art Nouveau interior in the US, and renovated by Disney nearly a century later, is "either one of the most gorgeous or one of the gaudiest theaters" on Broadway, said recommender Geoffrey Greene.

The New Amsterdam is the largest and most architecturally distinguished theater on West 42nd Street. Designed by Henry Herts and Hugh Tallant in 1903, the New Amsterdam was the first major Art Nouveau building in the United States. Beautifully restored a few years ago.
