Do not buy TKTS tickets if it puts you in the last few rows of the rear mezzanine like we did to see "If/Then". Seats are so cramped! Anyone over 5'3 is sitting with their knees in their face. There is no foot room or room for any bags. We went in the spring and they also did a poor... More

The sound quality was excellent and the view from center mezzanine was great. The seats were small, and very close together. My shins were pushed up against the seat in front of me. I had to put my feet to the side, and I am only 5'7. I loved every minute of the performance, but theatre itself was a bit... More

This review pertains to the theater itself, but I'm borrowing a line from If/Then, which I recently saw here. Beautiful old Broadway theater, orchestra is steeply "banked" so sight lines are terrific. Great acoustics. Layout is a little different, which means a bar (as are several souvenir stands) is on the same level as the seats, different from a lot... More

I went to see If/Then. The ticket I had was a rear mezzanine . Even up there I was able to see and hear the play very well . The decor of the theater is beautiful . I would recommend this play for all to see. I believe that it will be closing soon.

Anthony Rapp and Idina Menzel (Mark & Maureen in RENT) are together again in a wonderful story that follows two different directions a life may go based on a single decision. Songs were awesome as well as the cast. One scene/song is titled "What the f***?" So you decide if you want to sit through it with teenage/younger family members.... More

Gorgeous theatre with very comfortable seating! The waiting line for the ladies room at intermission is quite long as there are a small # of toilets - but it moves efficiently.

Went to see If/Then and was not disappointed with the show! We had front row center seats and our legs were touching the stage we were so close. The stage is very high so it is an obstruction as you are trying to watch the performance. We enjoyed the show but it would have been better a few rows back.... More

I saw IF/THEN last night in the theater. We had orchestra seats with a good view of the stage. The set design of IF/Then was amazing. I loved the mirror ceiling effect. of the play. As other reviewers pointed out - no lobby and it gets very crowed during intermission. Also, the theater got very warm. After the show, the... More

I recently did a trip to NY where I saw 7 shows in 5 days (Motown, Avenue Q, Wicked, If/Then, Aladdin, Phantom and Matilda). Although the actors and Miss Menzel were AMAZING, I kept getting distracted by the cramped seating, which was a bummer because you need to pay close attention due to the dual story-lines happening. I am 6'... 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.
