Ed Sullivan Theater

This tour offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at The CBS Late Show With David Letterman—a showplace studio at Broadway’s historic Ed Sullivan Theater, which hosted major stars ranging from The Beatles to Elvis Presley. Built in 1927 and originally named Hammerstein after the famed composer, the theater housed many hit broadway shows including Cabaret. When David Letterman switched networks from NBC to CBS in 1993, the 1,200-capacity theater was totally recongfured to a more intimate 400 seat studio with a state of the art sound system. All renovations were done with respect to the preservation of the architectural integrity of the landmark.

Price: $25 members; $35 nonmembers

Technical Tours are made available on a first come, first served basis. Tickets can be purchased during normal registration hours at the convention center.
