The Daryl Roth Theatre is an off-Broadway performance space at 101 East 15th Street, near Union Square, Manhattan, New York City. The building, built in 1907, is a New York City landmark.[1] The building houses two auditoriums: the Daryl Roth Theatre, which seats up to 300 people (or can accommodate 499 standing patrons), and the DR2 Theatre, which seats 99. The building was formerly the Union Square Savings Bank, before being acquired by Daryl Roth in 1996 and transformed into an off-Broadway venue. The DR2 Theatre was built in 2002.

Notable productions at the theatre include Fuerza Bruta, Bunnicula, Striking 12, and That Golden Girls Show.

In 2017, Frank Oz (while making his theatrical directorial debut with In and Of Itself) changed the layout of the theatre to incorporate its visually striking facade as an entrance to the theatre. That required moving the box office around, but now the audience can enter through the front doors on Union Square East.[2]
