Oh, What a Night!

Finally got to see "Jersey Boys"! Small, intimate, and beautiful theater only 3 blocks from our hotel. The show was phenomenal and everything I had hoped it would be.

Great show the Jersey Boys. The theatre was convenient to where we stayed for the weekend. Theatre did feel cramped but will go back for a different show. Not a bad seat in the house.

Theatre was a great setting for the Jersey Boys play. Staff was very friendly and the seats were wide enough to fit me at 6'6 370 lbs, which I was very worried about. Good experience. Drinks were high though but that's expected

We came to see Jersey Boys with seats in the 5th row. Our seats were great and the show was incredible. All the actors had their characters spot on. The actor who plays Frankie Valli looks a lot like him and sounds just like him. This is a relatively small theater so any seat is likely to give a pretty... More

Friday night in New York, what better than tapping your foot to the Jersey Boys, story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Great show, with an interesting / fun story line and an amazing list of hits not just sung by Frankie Valli but many, more recent artists. Show runs from 8pm to 10.30pm with a 20 min intermission....

Saw Jersey Boys at this small (but nice), theater in NYC on June 7th 2014. The show was AWESOME but this review is on the theater. First of all, the staff was friendly and courteous..which is sometimes hard to find in NYC. The bathrooms were EXTREMELY CLEAN as was the lobby and theater itself. The only thing I thought was...

Took this as an option one night in Times Square. Was good to see the live show certainly worth watching but not my first preference

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.
