We sat in the mezzanine and my husbands knees were smack against the seat in front of him. My husband is average size. The people next to us were very large and they had a really uncomfortable 3 hours! The decoration of the theatre is terrific. Nice to hace an elevator!

What a gorgeous theater!! We came here in early April to see Aladdin and it was an amazing show! The theater helped to enhance the show as well since it is just an overall beautiful venue. The artwork is quite nice and the seats were very comfy. We had a great view of everything even though we were up in... More

If you are going to the theater in NYC, you cannot beat seeing a show at the New Amsterdam Theater. Disney has restored this wonderful theater to its glory days! The staff and manager, Andrew, make sure you you have the best experience in seeing a show.

The theatre itself is good but nothing spetacular. It's as well done place little bit large and then the mezzanine was far from stage. The Lion King was great and we had very good time with the show.

I loved Aladdin but I have only been that uncomfortable in a chair one other time before. It was at Vanderbilt University's Memorial Gymnasium. The theatre us beautiful but there is NO leg room. If you are over 5'8" be careful!

We went to see Aladdin here and it was a great experience. We sat in the "cheap seats" but our view was still very good. I was a bit cramped in my seat and the food and drink were a bit expensive but overall it was a great night out!

Saw Aladdin recently at the New Amsterdam theater. The theater is very charming and really brings you back to the older days of a Broadway. I bought 2 sets of tickets as I was concerned about being able to see. Both were in the Mezzanine one set in the center section, row KK and the other side section row DD.... More
