A very attractive building inside. We sat in the front row of the mezzanine and this gave us an unobstructed close view of the stage.like many theatres legrom is restricted but the seats were fairly comfortable. Again like most theatres, overpriced drinks and too few restrooms.

Mid sized theater with typical tight leg room, smallish lobby, decent acoustics and ok sight lines Not the worst, but not the best either

The Palace Theater is in between 46th and 47th on Broadway and has 1,700+ seats. The decor in the theater is nice, but the seating is uncomfortable - not enough leg room and the seats should be staggered so average sized humans can see over the person in front of them.

We were disappointed. No one stood out. In fact, sometimes it was downright boring. It just didnt have the energy that they needed.

The seating child be better if they staggered more , but certainly the theater is a little more flat than most so there's nut as much sloping which doesnt help the viewing of the stage even if there's an average sized person in front of you. Now the American in Paris? That's another review.....

We really enjoyed our show (An American in Paris), however, the seating itself is problematic. I'm short and my companions are not particularly tall or large. Our knees were almost touching the seat in front of us. In addition, the seats are not staggered or sloped adequately to allow viewing with any standard-sized person in front of us. Just enjoy...

My daughter and I saw "An American in Paris" here...a perfect show for this historical landmark! The decor has been immaculately preserved and it is exciting just to think of the great names of Broadway years past that have trod the boards of this stage! It used to be said that if you played The Palace you had "made it"... 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.
