The John Golden Theatre is a Broadway theatre, located at 252 West 45th Street. On the small side, it seats only 805 people. It was once called the Theatre Masque. Because of its size, it housed more intimate plays, but most big shows opted for a larger theatre for a larger profit. In 1937, John Golden bought it and named it for himself, before selling it to the Shuberts in 1946. Its interior has a Spanish flavor with its rough plaster walls and wrought iron fixtures. Currently, the theatre is the home of Tony-winning musical Avenue Q.
