See An American in Paris in NYC at the Palace Theatre

We saw An American in Paris last night. Won 4 Tony awards. Really great show. All seats are good. We had 2nd row mezzanine that was perfect.

The stage adaptation from the screenplay was amazing. The likeness of the leading lady to Lesley Caron and dance style was stunning. Pure enjoyment for 2 1/2 hours.

From someone that has not been to very many plays, this was a great show. Seemed like there was more ballet than play. I liked the story. The orchestra was great. The theater is beautiful.

Fabulous theater with elevator to the balcony, with restroom at the top! Perfect for the performance of "American in Paris" ballet by New York City dancers. Breathtaking!

"An American In Paris" at the Palace Theatre was one of the most enjoyable plays we've seen! The Theatre itself is filled with gorgeous architectural details! I was also impressed with how well organized the staff is during intermission to move things along smoothly. Be sure to arrive very early, this area is so crowded with tourists it's not easy...

This theatre is over years old with the supreme architectural detail one would expect from a building of this era. We found the seats to be comfortable and staff to be friendly and accommodating. The only negative is bathroom access, which I presume most likely can't be addressed without major structural changes.

My sister and I took my mom to see An American in Paris at the Palace Theatre. The show was fabulous!! The dancing, the singing, the sets, and the beautiful people were spectacular !!! The palace theatre was so Grand and surprisingly comfortable! Bars in theatre are available on both floors as well as the souvenir stand. Highly recommended!!

I waited at 8 am for rush tickets and got them no problem—it was totally worth it! Most views in the balcony are a little obstructed, but it didn't bother me too much. The set was incredible, the music (Gershwin) was awesome, and the dancing was incredible. I didn't really know what to expect going into this show, besides that... More

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...

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.
