Absolutely loved this musical, fantastic singing and dancing. The theatre is easy to find, right in the middle of Times Square with lots of great restaurants surrounding it. We had great seats in the upper level but from what l could tell all seats would have a great view. Make sure you see a show when in NYC, hopefully JB... More

Jersey Boys is a must see while you are visiting New York city! The performers are so talented and their voices are incredible! The show was very entertaining. The theatre is two levels and this place bets packed! There was not one open seat available. It's close to many restaurants and is easy to find. I would highly recommend coming... More

We've seen this show the last two years while visiting NYC and will see it again. The theater is very nice and we've sat in different places and all seating seems to be good. The show is first rate. We paid $176 for two tickets at the theater box office the day before. Seems a little high, but well worth... More

Older theatre in NYC which translates to...not a bad seat in the house. We were lucky enough to get a backstage tour prior to the show. Location is within walking distance of Times Square, restaurants. Highly recommend Jersey Boys.

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

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.
