This was one of the best things I've done I saw aladin it was so good I think that if your going to new york then you should definitely watch a broad way show and it should be at this theater

For my 2nd year anniversary, I bought tickets for us to see ALADDIN. The employees were extremely helpful and kind. The theatre seats are extremely close so be sure to choose your seating appropriately. My partner is 6'8" so I have to purchase aisle seats....More

Went to see aladdin in this lovely theatre, had a good seat on the edge of the mezzanine level (cheap seats) with a very good view. We were given a free program which I thought was a nice touch. Seats though we're a tad uncomfortable,...More

The theater is good. Comfortable seats, and the temperature was good. A bit on the cold side like most. The staff are friendly and helpful. We saw Aladdin and loved it! Highly recommend!

Saw Aladdin with the family. Lovely ornate theatre and just the right size. Loved the feeling of a bit of history in this building. Comfy seats but taller guests might have a slight issue. Good sight lines. Show was great. Genie was the show stealer,...More

Came to see Aladdin. The theater is an ornate beauty. Site line are great, and you feel very close to the stage. The only knock is, as with so many theaters this age, legroom in the balconies can be a bit tight. But, a great...More

Is there a general dress code for the evening show? I'm thinking business casual?

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.

I see some reviews stating the seats can be uncomfortable for taller people since it is an older theater. My husband is 6'6" I don't want him to be miserable. I am willing to pay more for his comfort. Are there any seats that may offer more leg room? For the show we are looking at Mezzanine row AA is available. Thanks!

The seats were tight and the space was small, my partner is 6 ft and it was a tight squeeze so it maybe worth contacting the theatre to try and get a more spacious seating area :)
Hello, Trying to decide if better to get center tickets row MM and further on Mezzanine level or center row G in the balcony. Please share your experiences. There are 4 of us and tickets are so expensive I'm trying to get something decent for the least amount of money.
