My wife and I went to the NYTW for the first time last night to see Bacharach Reimagined. The show was tremendous, and the theater even better. What a cool intimate place. Every seat is like sitting in the best seat in the house. A small warm place, with a very pleasant staff. Sorry this is the first time we... More

The Saturday matinee on December 21, 2013 was excellent; Kyle Riabko and the cast had the perfect presence and voices for the creative rearranging of Bacharach's wonderful music; the production had gentleness and softness and emotional quality as well as the energetic interpretation of some of the songs - the lighting and scene production was great.

Saw "Once the Musical" at the New York Theater Workshop, a show now moving to Broadway. The theater itself is tucked away in the East Village and casts a great show. Can't wait to see this one again when it opens next month!

I went to see Ivo van Hove's production of Lillian Hellman's classic play and the entire production, but especially the acting, was spectacular. For me, THIS is New York Theater, not the tourist-driven entertainment on Broadway. One often takes for granted the amazing, world-class talent resident in the City. The NYTW doesn't.
