This theater is on the smaller side but has comfortable seats. We were in orchestra left towards the rear but had full view of the stage.Friends had recommended this production which currently stars Sara Barellis who also wrote the music.

This theater is beautiful! It looks to be recently renovated. The seats and aisles are roomier than the typical Broadway theater. The hit show "Waitress" is playing at this venue. One glitch was that the line for the restroom and the shop crisscrossed.

The layout of the theatre isn't very good for purchasing anything from the gift shop downstairs, but it's an old theatre and some of them just don't have enough space where needed. The theatre is nice and Waitress is a great show, so if you...More

We saw waitress and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The tickets were easy to book and the seats had plenty of leg space

By now I know the deal with Broadway theaters -- they're old & cramped with a lot of bad sight lines and horrendously long lines for small restrooms. I come braced for this. Not so, Brooks Atkinson theater. I had a great, front row mezz...More

My college age daughter and I saw Waitress. Theater was ornate beautiful and clean.. Great seats wherever you sit. The show was absolutely one of the best I have seen. I recommend it to teens and up.

This theater was simply great - small enough that I don't think any seat would be bad. The show was incredible- mature themes - my 16 year old said she felt "every emotion"!

My girlfriend and I enjoyed seeing the Waitress last week. The theatre was clean and the staff was very nice and helpful. The cast did an amazing job, storyline not my fav but the sheer talent to perform live is outstanding.

Jessie Mueller gives a wonderful performance in Broadway's Waitress. This is a must see when you find yourself in New York.

I am going to New York in May for a week and would like to see this musical, do you think if I wait to get tickets when I'm there it will be fine?

We went to the tickets broker in Times Square the morning of the show and bought tickets. We had a list of shows to see and went with what was available. If you have your heart set on a show the only way to guarantee... More
