NEW YORK - An iconic bookstore is reopening its doors in a new location after closing more than a year ago.

"The Drama Book Shop" was open for nearly 100 years, but had been forced to close its West 40th Street location in January because of a rent increase.

The independent shop is beloved by the city's theater community and is known for having one of the largest collections of plays in the country. 

It's also where actor Lin Manuel Miranda wrote drafts of "In the Heights".

Miranda was one of several people who took over the store and vowed to reopen it.

The Drama Bookshop will open in March 2020 on West 39th Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues.
