Last night my mother and I went to watch Aladdin. We arrived with plenty of time, showed the usher our tickets and were directed to our seats. We even looked up at her for confirmation that these were the correct ones. To which we were...More

We went to a fantastic performance of Aladdin in this gorgeous theater earlier this week. There is not a bad seat in the entire theater! The only thing I'll warn of is that the seats are VERY small. I'm 6'5", sat on an aisle, and...More

I don't know that there is a bad seat in the house. We were on the upper balcony and had an incredible view. Seats were a little old and cramped, but the view made up for it. Great place to see a great performance.

We love this theater. The interior is gorgeous......is it beaux arts style? Beautifully maintained lobby, auditorium, everything. We were not as enthusiastic about Alladin.

We went to see Aladdin here in September and the show itself is decent but the theater is a disgrace. We went to the concession stand to get drinks and refreshments, choice was very limited and wine and beer was $14 each. OK, you are...More

We watched the sterling performance of Aladdin. The scale of the theatre is much larger than the West End cousins in London. But this bigness comes with more cons than pros. The distance between the audience and the stage is one. But the small seats...More

Great time at the New Amsterdam, show was well done along with the genie's debut performance. We sat in the upper balcony and the seats were still good (close to the rail). Drinks / snacks are a little on the high side so we waited...More

You can download and print from online. You can also access your tickets on the app. It makes it easier to do this as there were lines outside.

Hey! Unfortunately that I don't know how to answer you, my seat was in in the far back of the balcony, but it was perfectly fine to see everything and be involved in the play. I reckon the middle seats would be better.

Anything is fine. I have seen shorts to jackets. It is all what you like. I tend to dress better because I like an evening at the theater, but there is no actual code.
