Brookfield Properties Manhattan West Theater Opening


The theater is in the same space as pan-Asian restaurant Hidden Leaf, which opened in July, so audiences can order dim sum, noodles and wok dishes from its menu. However, anyone can go to the restaurant, even if there is a show going on.

Josh Cohen, who is behind Brooklyn spots Chez Ma Tante, Lilia and Saint Vitus, said he dreams of opening his first restaurant in Manhattan as part of a larger entertainment venue.

“That was my pitch at Brookfield,” he said. Working with the property management and development company, Cohen and his team transformed the raw space into a glamorous and intimate place, he said. The dining room has 80 covers, plus 50 at the bar.

While anyone can dine at the Hidden Leaf, the prospect of dinner and a show “completes the dream of creating the perfect night out in New York under one roof,” said Warren Adcock, creative director of Midnight. Theater.

Although the theater has an Art Deco aesthetic, the high-tech capabilities allow performances to use a projection system that can digitally change the look of the room, providing a transformative backdrop. There are built-in digital backdrops and animated environments that can respond to music. New York-based Buy, Mastercard, will also produce some of its own in-space shows and events, which will be exclusive to cardholders.

The Midnight Theater’s official address is 75 Manhattan West Plaza, between 9th and 10th Avenues and West 31st and 33rd Streets.
