Cummings is AMAZINGLY BRILLIANT in Cabaret!

We had great seats, medium priced. Cummings was brilliantly fabulous! I was in total awe of him. He was constantly on - which is difficult when one is on stage as much as he... read more

I am not a lover of musicals, but this was fantastic! Alan Cummings is phenomenal! The rest of the cast are a delight to watch. The performances and music are simultaneously sexy and funny. The seating is such that the stage is visible anywhere and creates an intimate experience. Get a drink and keep the glass, with Cabaret written on... More

This was the highlight of my trip to NYC. Emma Stone was wonderful and Alan Cummings stole the show. If you can, try and get student tickets for $30, the seats were still great and you can't beat such fantastic talent. The set was intimate and the show was just wonderful. Highly recommend. Go see it while Emma Stone is... More

Not the biggest set, but the greatest setting to view a musical of this intimate caliber. Must see. Sit back and get into the show. You won't be sorry.

The theater is super cool, it is the remodeled Studio 54. Alan is really funny and seems so comfortable in the roll. Emma Stone is sultry and a great performer. Just an amazing cast and music. We felt like it was an intimate setting and privileged to see this while in town.

Alan Cummings is terrific. Studio 54 the perfect venue. Did not like the tight seating in upper level or $16 price for a glass of wine, but otherwise the atmosphere was fine. Acting excellent.

Allen Cummings was great and that's about it. Three of us went, none of us enjoyed it. Not at all what we expected- it was all we could do to not leave at intermission. When the show was finally over, there actually is a story but it took way to long to know it and the show was extraordinarily raunchy

We had great seats, medium priced. Cummings was brilliantly fabulous! I was in total awe of him. He was constantly on - which is difficult when one is on stage as much as he was (even when in the background). His timing, the costuming, his facial expressions, movements --- everything he did was so brilliant! He was fantastic and amazing!!... More

We came here for a bachelorette party. We got great seats and great service. The show was fantastic. They even did something special for the bride. I will definitely return!

Where do I begin?? I love to visit NY and catch a show or two. I was told that this show was one of the best. I was not familiar with Alan Cummings. BUT OH MY GOSH, I AM NOW. He was simply amazing. You could not take your eyes off him and not smile during the performance. I had... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
