A wonderful Broadway theater. Very clean and great seating. I also liked that they sold water during intermission in the theater. It was a very hot day, so it was a welcome relief to be able to buy water.

Loved this theater! The escalators were great for keeping things moving. Bathrooms were very clean. Not a bad seat in the house!! They could have had more than one line open for souvenirs after. We waited a long time.

Celebrating summer and NYC. Picked the show Wicked. The cast was great, full of energy and an awesome performance. The theater is very nice, easy to navigate and reasonable priced tickets. The highlight of the trip was going to a broadway theater.

This theater does not have a bad seat in the house. It is one of the larger theaters on Broadway. The seats are comfortable and have more leg room than some.

What a fantastic production of Wicked, a tour de force that excels in every way possible- great singing, wonderful dancing, costumes changing with every number, lighting, lights, music, aerials and stagings that were beyond imagination. We have been attending plays on Broadway since 1974 and...More

Loved the cozy atmosphere and feeling of an authentic, historical theater. We sat off to the left, but even the side seating was good and felt like you were right there, close to the stage. If you're not from NY, the drink prices may scare...More

Honestly, people don't dress up for the theatre anymore. You could go in anything you want or feel comfortable in.

We are two adults and two children. We had stall seats which were good positions and the total cost was about £480.00 for the four of us. Enjoy the show.
