I love this small and intimate theater. The stage being in the center of most of the seats makes for a special theater experience. See a show here, you will be glad you did.

Smaller theater which creates a wonderful, intimate setting for a show. We saw In Transit here. It was phenomenal! It's an all a capella show with the only instruments being the actors voices and one actor that beat boxes. The storyline is great with a...More

First A Cappella Production on Broadway! It was amazing. You understand the daily struggles of the characters and just wanted to hug them for sorrow or achievements. Amazing little theater, not a bad seat in the place.

My husband and I are going to get tickets to see Fun Home. Everyone says that there are no bad seats and that you can see from everywhere in the theater. However, I want to try to get comfortable seats that afford the best chance of having the actors face them for the majority of the show. What seats would you say are the best ... and which to avoid. Thanks!! Lisa
