This was my first visit to the Richard Rodgers theater. As expected the theater is small. I had a very good orchestra seat however; in order to use the ladies room I had to walk a couple flights of stairs to the mezzanine level. I learned there are no elevators in this theater. IF/Then is currently playing at this theater.... More

This theater is beautiful and Idina Menzel in If/Then is something you don't want to miss!! The story is intriguing and thought provoking and will make you laugh and cry. We loved it so much we decided to see it again! We got lucky and won the lottery one day so our tickets were just 25$ a piece! Also don't... More

This theater is old but well kept, ornate and simply beautiful. We saw the musical IF/THEN, starring Idina Menzel, and it was the best and most amazing musical I have ever seen! Menzel was flawless and funny! And, the rest of the cast was so beautiful and impressively talented too! It was a wonderful experience that I will never forget!

I think our local high school's auditorium seats more than Richard Rodgers. It's old, small, beautiful, but the seats are close together so if you are over 6 feet tall you'll be smooshed in. Around row L the seats start to be elevated so the views are great if you are in L or more. The stage is versatile, rotates,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our night out to see the new Idina show If/Then. We were seated in row M and had a perfect view of the stage. Starting at row N, the seats are elevated, making it difficult to find a bad seat in the house. It is true that this is an older theater. The only challenge that I... More

Their house manager, Tim Pettolina is the calmest, most helpful host I've ever seen. He's always present and you can tell by talking to his kind staff that they like working for him. I've seen three shows here in recent years, including "In the Heights," "Porgy and Bess" and now "If/Then." They have a handicap accessible bathroom that is unmarked... More

This theatre is hosting the new musical If/Then staring the incomparable Indina Menzel. The show is good and the music is wonderful Idina is tops and can sure belt out a song! The rest of the cast is super and we really enjoyed the afternoon. As for the theatre -- we had what we thought were rear ORCHESTRA seats -... More

As a long Idina fan, it was thrilled she would be bringing her amazing voice back to Broadway. I fell in love with her voice from being privileged of seeing her in Wicked. Her voice is still solid, strong and effortless. You get chills when she effortlessly hits high notes. The play was quite confusing. While the storyline is that... More

Took my daughter, a die-hard Idina Menzel fan, to this show. It was a matinee. Do I have to mention that she is a power-house singer? She was fantastic, as were all of the actors. However, the plot and storyline are a bit tedious and boring. I would have been happier to just have the singers/actors come out and sing... More

What I don't like about the theatre is that they open up the house only 30 minutes prior to showtime. This did not allow enough time to get drinks, go to the bathroom, and get souvenirs prior to the show. The house staff was friendly and be sure to order drinks for intermission prior to the first act.
