An American in Paris is absolutely stunning! The dancing was incredible! It was so beautiful that it was almost hard to believe that these were real people dancing. (I know, that sounds weird!) I almost cried, it was so beautiful. The music, singing and acting were great also, of course! It reminded me of why you want to see live... More

This show is so beautiful that it is almost painful !!! Ballet is exquisite. Gershwin songs. Brilliant cast. Perfection. What more can I say? This show is magnificent. Story is a bit different from the movie. The time is a bit different as well---movie took place 7 years after liberation. The show took place immediately after the end of the... More

Brilliant performance, absolutely, fabulous, amazing dancing/ballet by the principal actors and supporting cast. I was enthralled watching the dancing, this was one performance that I didn't want to end! The principal dancer just floated on stage, she was so graceful. Her partner made was amazing leaps and movements to match. Great rendition of Gershwin songs, go see it. Get tickets... More

We saw "American in Paris" here last week, and just loved it. Ballet within a musical, terrific, great music, fantastic choreography, solid cast. This should get great reviews when it opens, but I digress..... I got tickets in the mezzanine for this hoping to have a better view of the dancing, and we did. It's steeply banked, we were in...

Was so looking forward to our third show of our stay. American in Paris. Ballet and music. However, after 15 minutes in my seat was wincing and by the interval had to leave in severe pain. You can not move when installed in the seats. You can not cross legs. Heck, you can't move legs. You are in a torture... More

Last night I saw An American in Paris a new musical now in previews on Broadway. I heard about the show last year when the cast started rehearsals and I was excited I couldn't wait to see it. The storyline made me feel as if I was actually in Paris from the sets, costumes, and they accents. What stood out... More

I have been to many, many, broadway theaters and this one is average. It is average in looks, average in the quality of seating, and has a terrible men's room space. On a positive note the acoustics are good in this theatre.

We saw Annie at the Palace Theatre on December 29th. This theatre is absolutely beautiful!! The red carpet, the shining chandeliers, and all the amazing architectural details inside take you inside a different world than the streets of Times Square right outside the door. I haven't been inside any others, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but... More

We saw Annie here this week. The building itself is what I am reviewing. The seats were comfortable, and most had a good view even on the orchestra floor. The bathrooms were clean and functional though there were down a set of very steep stairs. The bar staff were excellent and efficient.

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.
