The Davenport Theatre is an Off-Broadway theater venue located at 354 West 45th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. It is owned and operated by Broadway and Off-Broadway producer Ken Davenport. Previously called the 45th Street Theatre, the Davenport Theatre was purchased by producer Ken Davenport in 2014 and renamed after his great-grandfather, Delbert Essex Davenport, who was a producer, publicist, and author in the early 1900s. According to the building's certificate of occupancy from 1959, the space was intended to be used as offices and a recording studio and had been used illegally as a theater space for several decades. The Davenport Theatre has two performances spaces, a 149-seat main stage on the ground floor and a 99-seat black box recently renovated and renamed, The Loft at the Davenport Theatre on the third floor. The main stage is currently home to the play Shear Madness, which opened in July 2016. The Loft will be housing A Dog Story, a new musical set to open in November 2016.
