Whilst I enjoyed it, I was a little "underwhelmed" and felt it did not reach the heights of its " hype." " Bullets Over Broadway" production outshone M. Mia hugely in my opinion. It seems to me that many shows are "artificially" promoted to persuade the fickle public that they are something better than they rally are. "Smoke and mirrors!"

This show was well-worth the time. Got discounted tickets day f the show at TKTS booth in Times Square. Checked their web-site often during the week and it looked like you could get tickets 50% off everyday. All seats in the theater are good.

I have loved Broadway my entire life. I love the old theaters and the history they hold. And the talent of the performers is truly remarkable. So much to see and since I've moved to California, I will go to New York for a weekend and see as many shows as I can.

Great walk down Broadway from 57th street to Time Square. Seen so many sights and so much better than taking the subway.

We stayed in Times Square and really enjoyed walking around and seeing all of the people and the marque's for the different shows. We bought tickets at the TKTS booth and also from the box office the afternoon of the performance.

We saw three shows while in New York and they were all fabulous. Such a great experience for us and our teenage daughter. Would definitely go back and see more shows. Expensive but worth it.

Loved the cast and music! Cozy, quaint and jazzy! 6 time Tony award winning Audra McDonald performed beautifully... A wonderful reminder of that jazz era.

If you come from far away take the risk to grab your ticket on the spot. Except from brand new release which can be full quickly, other are reachable more... More
