New owners Thomas Kail and Lin-Manuel Miranda will re-open The Drama Book Shop, at its new home at 266 West 39th Street, on Thursday, June 10.
Founded in 1917 by the Drama League, The Drama Book Shop became an independent bookstore in 1923 and has since been deemed a quintessential New York City cultural institution. For over 100 years, The Drama Book Shop has been the city’s best source for theatrical works, with over 8,000 plays regularly in stock. In 2011, The Drama Book Shop received a Tony Award Honor for Excellence in the Theatre.
The new location, designed by “Hamilton” scenic designer David Korins and his team, pays homage to 20th century European cafes and reading rooms and features a full-service cafe serving coffee, teas, and light snacks.
