Here with Family ( All Adults ) to see The Jersey Boys. The show was really good. We all had a great time and I would recommend it to everyone. I personally like it more then the rockettes but I must say both are good.

Recently attended the 10th Anniversary weekend shows of Jersey Boys this past Friday and Sunday. Went to watch Jersey Boys about 10 times previously starting in November, 2005, and love the venue! Extremely clean, has that "classic" theater look and feel, and meeting friends who have performed in the musical since the start of the show, and returned for a... More

Really great musical at a fantastic venue, the story was told brilliantly and some of the songs you wouldn't realise we're Frankie Valli's.

Jersey Boys is an excellent production. All seats have great views even the outer edges. We asked our hotel about tickets and they could only offer tickets way over 120 dollars. We went to the theatre box office on the day and got great seats for 88 dollars. Not sure if the Mets playing the first game of the world... More

We saw Jersey Boys there and it was a great time. The seating was excellent, the acoustics are terrific, the visibility of the stage is first rate and the sets were good. The only bad thing was the ridiculous price of wine at the bar - we ate at excellent restaurants all week, and this was the only, bad, overpriced... More

We did not get a drink so I won't comment on prices or washrooms as others have. The staff were very friendly, and the box office upgraded our seats to the centre. The show was fantastic! We knew a lot of the songs, you will too, and the songs were tied together well with the story. I highly recommend this... More

Outstanding musical. Have enjoyed this as much as The Phantom of the Opera we saw in London. Very energetic and the music was everything we had hoped for and more. Highly recommended. I would see it again and again!

We visited this theater to see Jersey Boys during our visit to NYC. We happened to visit during the Pope's visit and so there were many road closures. Even though we were walking from our hotel we were still delayed and were about five minutes late. I was so worried they wouldn't seat us after the show started, but thankfully... More

Can't remember prices at other broadway shows but this was offensive. two wines a beer and 3 spirits $133...Ladies rest rooms queue round the lobby...luckily the cast and show were outstanding. Have a couple of drinks before you go....unless your a lady and don't want to queue for 20 mins.. I will leave a 5 out of 5 for Jersey... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
