I had the most uncomfortable evening while seeing the show 'Aladdin'. First the show is not that great. It is like watching a Vegas review. Very garish and the songs from the movie are much better than the ones written for the show. Its the seats. You are packed in like sardines and you have no leg room. The place... More

We went to see Aladdin on a Saturday in November. The theatre is really beautiful and the show was great. As always merchandise was very expensive - $25 for a programme is crazy! Drinks were also quite expensive but they did come in a sparkly Aladdin cup which was a bonus for me!! We sat on the mez level and... More

A beautiful theater. My only complaint is while there is leg room,the seats require replacement. There is no support and your back hurts. With the cost of the tickets, hey, spring for some new supportive seats!

The architecture is amazing, and take the time to really look around and particularly the ceiling. The sculptures are slimy stunning. The seating itself is very cramped with little leg room, but the atmosphere and ambience certainly overshadow the cramped seating. Acoustically the theatre is very good, with not being too loud but easy to hear the performers. We saw... More

What an amazing place the facilities are well maintained and the theatre itself is just stunning. If you are a tall person don't sit on the balcony and the space between seats is tight all in all one of the nicer theatres in NYC

We wanted a kid friendly show so I paid premium prices to get tickets. We were on the side down front. I think the seats would have been better towards the center a few rows back, but no one complained. The music wasn't overly loud. Be sure to go early so you can see the inside of the theater and...

When we knew we were going to be in NYC I immediately bought tickets to see Disney's Aladdian!! Anything Disney you know is going to be special. The scenery, music and costumes were fabulous!!! The way the costumes are handmade is fantastic and beautiful-everything about it is Magical! Singing great and all the characters were fantastic-especially the Genie, Aladdian, and... More

This great Theater that now hosts Aladdin the Musical has quite a beautiful stage and the performances are breath-taking. The balcony section is a bit cramped and hard to reach for elderly or disabled people. Overall, this is a very nice and picturesque theater.

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.
