The Music Box Theatre is a Broadway theater located at 239 West 45th Street (George Abbott Way) in midtown-Manhattan.
The once most aptly named theater on Broadway, the intimate Music Box was designed by architect C. Howard Crane and constructed by composer Irving Berlin and producer Sam H. Harris specifically to house Berlin's famed Music Box Revues. It opened in 1921 and hosted a new musical production every year until 1925, when it presented its first play, Cradle Snatchers, starring Humphrey Bogart.
The play "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck opened at the Music Box Theatre on 23 November 1937.
