The show, the actors, the costumes, the special effects were all fantastic. The show is about 2 hours; 45 minutes and contains the wonderful tunes we all remember from childhood. What is, however,...

I took my daughter to Mary poppins and had pre booked our tickets from australia . Not knowing the best seats etc I chose the balcony which was perfect but I'd say every seat had a great view . The theatre is so ornate and old style, seats are a little crammed being the only drawback. They have booster cushions... More

We saw Mary Poppins here. The show was fun and we loved the old theater. It was located just a few stow from our hotel, which made it very convenient for us.

The theater itself was beautiful but the seating sucked. There was NO legroom at all. It would be better if they had a full bar and places to hold drinks.

We went to see Mary Poppins which was fantastic. All lead actors were amazing. The actor who played Bert was as good as Dick Van Dyke in the movie. The sets were fabulous. Many times we were shocked to see something or someone on stage without knowing how they got there. The only unfortunate drawback for us was that the... More

We had a very good view, front 2 rows and center stage. The seats were at the end of the row so that was nice. The problem was that the seats were sooooo small and very crowded! I really dont know how anyone over 5ft could have any leg room. I dont think anyone over 175lbs could even sit comfortably.... More

We went to see Mary Poppins on 9-16-2012. Our seats were on the left side Orchestra area. All orchestra seats are ideal as the theater is not that big. It's a perfect size and not overwhelming..We bought our tickets thru NYC.go and got a great deal on our seats. We didn't purchase anything in the theater so I can't speak... More

I've heard people say that Broadway has become too "Disney". Maybe so, personal opinion, BUT the way they saved this magnificent theater is amazing. It is absolutely beautiful!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
