Designed by Alan Sayles, the Circle in the Square Theatre (along with its much larger sibling, the Gershwin Theatre) is inside the confines of the Paramount Plaza office tower. It was built in 1970 as the Uris Brothers tore down the former Capitol Theatre in order to construct the tower. On 15th November 1972, the Circle in the Square repetory company staged its first Broadway production with a revival of Mourning Becomes Electra. It is one of the smallest and most intimate spaces on Broadway and productions are generally staged in the round.
