The Brooks Atkinson Theatre is a Broadway theater located at 256 West 47th Street in Manhattan.

Designed by architect Herbert J. Krapp, it was constructed as the Mansfield Theatre by the Chanin brothers in 1926. After 1933, the theatre fell into relative disuse until 1945, when Michael Myerberg bought it and leased it to CBS for television productions. In 1960, it was renamed after the former New York Times theater critic and returned to legitimate use.

Refurbished in 2000, the theatre once again is illuminated by the original chandelier that had been removed over 40 years ago. It has 1,069 seats and is one of the Nederlander Organization's nine Broadway houses.

Its most recent occupant was the Twyla Tharp production The Times They Are a-Changin', dance numbers choreographed to the music of Bob Dylan. Unlike her previous project, the highly successful Movin' Out, it received lukewarm reviews and closed within weeks of its opening.
