Loved the production Aladdin! A must see for all ages The seats we had weren't that great. We asked ( the extremely rude clerk) what seats where left and if they were good seats, he said yes, unobstructed. Not so much. They seating up in the balcony is very squishy - you would not want to be bigger than a... More

This was a great theater with a great show. From the costumes, to the actors, all the way to the fantastic props. Everything was perfect, the show is highly recommended. Just for theater reference, it is old and beautiful. The seats are comfy, the place is beautiful, and the bathrooms are spotless. The staff were wonderful, knowledgable, and helpful. You... More

The theater itself deserves a visit. Nowadays it performs Alladin, which is a very interesting show, colorful and joyful. The mezzanine seats area a little tight. I suggest the ground flloor seats.

Aladdin is playing at this theater currently. The show is awesome and the facility awesome as well. We prepaid not only tickets but souvenirs and it was easy to exchange our tickets for the merchandise we had preselected. The genie in Aladdin really makes this show. He is a big guy with an even bigger personality. Aladdin and his friends... More

We saw Aladdin at this theater and it's every bit as gorgeous as it is historic. The details and architecture are beautiful.

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

Ok... we had " behind the pole seats". Well.. pole really not in front of you. We had G11 and H11. The H11 has no pole in the view at all. For G11 its on your right but no bother at all. Yes, no leg room . Would be a problem for larger and taller person. I was ok since... 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

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.
