A regal theater typical of historic Broadway. Typical small seats. But on par with what one could expect. Would return to see a show.

We saw one of the last shows for an "American in Paris" here and we were very happy with our theatre experience. I will HIGHLY recommend that you purchase good seats as this has a huge impact on your overall experience in any theatre, but it seems more so here. We had seats in row AA which is the front...

Sunset Boulevard returns to Broadway with Glenn Close again in the lead role. This was the second night of previews beginning a limited run. Great cast and a fantastic orchestra. No one there was mailing it in, the cast clearly enjoys their work and takes pride in it. Like many Broadway theaters seating was less than completrly comfortable but we... More

Play: The Illusionist, Palace theater right in the center of Times Square, crowded with people, but worth the experience, booked through Ticketmaster, worked perfect! Old stylish theater!

This theater was a great venue for this musical. It is too bad the musical is no longer running. The sight lines and acoustics were good. Staff was courteous and helpful.

I liked this theater. Had an orchestra seat and felt there was enough room. The inside has an old world charm to it, with the balcony seating and the heavy curtains. Went for a performance of the Illusionists. Would recommend getting an aisle, orchestra seat as there is quite a bit of audience participation and that seemed to be popular... More

I saw the production of " American in Paris", which was a great show. Talented performers sang many recognizable songs and danced wonderfully. The ever changing set designs were completed in an excellent display of creativity. The Palace theatre is an older building, which means that the seats are close together with not much room in between the rows. The... More

Theater is intimate and had some ornate details that made it more interesting than some of the more modern theaters I've been to in other states. We were rear mezzanine, Row L, seats 120-122. We had a direct view of the stage and could see all the action and hear very well. I have bad eyes so I can't really... More

Great Location. Excellent seats for 55.00 p.p. A lot of shows no longer have dialogue. Praise God this wasn't one of them. We loved it. The music was Awesome.

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.
