We came here for Aladdin in January 2015. The show itself was wonderful and the theater itself played a big role in making it so wonderful. The theater is beautiful and not too big, but do be warned that it will probably be a full house and getting out of here is a bit crazy. The elaborate decor and arrangement... More

I watched Aladdin here in December, the theater itself has a lot of character and great sound amplification. Aladdin was well worth seeing, even with the cheesy americanism that has gone in to it and a very adapted story line. I.E Iago exists but no Aboo? Definitely one thing to tick off to say that you have been to the... More

My husband and I bought tickets last minute and literally were in the last row. Although very steep and tight legroom/butt room, the stage was still visible and Aladdin was amazing!

Just saw Aladdin and it was great! The Genie is the clear star. My 5 and 9 year old boys thought it was a super fun show. The theater was beautiful and while a lot of reviews complained of tight seating - I personally thought it was fine. I've been to several theaters on and off Broadway and this one... More

Beware: if you purchase a balcony ticket, you will have ZERO leg room. it makes airplane seating look spacious by comparison. I am just letting everyone know because I wish I had been forewarned. Other than that, there is not a bad view in the house!

Went to the New Amsterdam Theater to see Aladdin and enjoyed a great show. We went for a 2pm matinee showing on a sunny winter Sunday and had no wait upon entering the theater. Overall the theater is satisfactory; however the seats are a hit or a miss. We had mezzanine seats; but the one I had was a bit... More

We were so excited to take our boys to their first Broadway show. The performance of Aladdin did not disappoint. As for the theater: - The staff was very friendly and helpful which is what led me to give a 4 star rating. -They provided cushions for the kids so they could see better. - The rows are VERY close...

My wife and I went to see Aladdin at the New Amsterdam in November. It was a chilly Sunday afternoon and we went to the 2pm showing. There was quite a long line to get in (literally from almost the corner of 42nd and 7th and there was another line coming in from the other direction) but the line moved... More

I took my girls last week to watch Aladdin and it was great fun. My girls had a blast. The Genie is the best part of the show. I'd watch it again!
