Wonderful overall experience. We waited late to get great seats, but we still had a nice view of the stage from the mezzanine. Most ushers were very helpful. I did overhear a few ushers get a little snippy with some of the patrons.

You would think the adaptation of a cliched and old movie musical would be boring or slow or whatever. No - American in Paris is brilliant, with the best dancing I have seen on Broadway since Pippin (the original,l yes, I am kind of old), The play moves, despite being long, the book works, despite holding no surprises, the use...

My husband and I were in NYC for a July 4 wedding and decided to make the most of it, seeing three plays. An American in Paris was wonderful. The singing and dance were top-notch, and the background scenery was quite amazing. If you get the chance, be sure to get to this performance!

We saw An American in Paris here and if you like ballet, this show is for you. I wish there was more dialogue and singing, but the dancing was great. My wife was in heaven.

Thoroughly enjoyed An American in Paris, some of the best ballet, choreography, acting, singing, music, and set design. We had fantastic seats in front row AA of the Mezzanine and had no problem seeing the stage, however, we see that others reviewing the seating had issues seeing over the railing. While my husband and I thought this musical was superb,... More

Do you like Gershwin's music ? You will be amazed and find yourself singing. Show was a sell off and the theatre is kept clean and in good condition. We were surprised seeing people in flip flops near people dressed with more respect for the event. But hey, we were there to listen to the music and see the show... More

The play "An American in Paris" was excellent with amazing singing, dancing and music of Gershwin. This old theatre is classic and beautiful but not great for handicapped access. Steps to seats were steep. Friendly staff and great acoustics made the experience enjoyable.

Did a theatre trip to New York to see all the new musicals and this, sadly, was my disappointment. The plot in the first act seemed only to serve to link together the various musical numbers, rather than tell a story to its audience. The second act moved more briskly but was still unsatisfying. I am a ballet as well... More

I suspect every hoofer wannabe is going to queue up for this show. The director Chris Wheeldon, is also the choreographer. So the emphasis is on the dance as it probably should be. Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope, two of the most highly ranked dancers in the world, lead the show as Jerry and Lise. The dancing is superb. However,... More

We've been several times... Left, Right, and Center Orchestra all give good sight lines. Mezzanine is also good ... if you are not tall, get a couple of rows back from rail. Overall delightful experience. This time we were there for American in Paris... a great experience taking us back to the heady days of Gershwin! Dancing was very good... 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.
