I could hardly wait to get on-line to rave about Hamilton. It did not disappoint. I agree with the other reviews and encourage you to take time to do a quick scan of Hamilton's history prior to seeing the show. The show brilliantly sweeps you off your feet and throws you back in time with surprisingly pleasurable and alluring hip,... More

My review echoes the others, mostly. Hamilton was a superb show, and the creakyness of the theatre has its charm. Being partly disabled, I found our seats up in the nosebleed section, no elevators, and only one basement restroom a bit of a challenge, but, hey! , the show was excellent and the theatre has a long history. If they... More

Hamilton is packing in crowds for its launch performances to rave reviews from the critics. The show is a blend of history, hip hop, and musical theater. Mr. Lin Manuel Miranda is a true poet. Strongly suggest that visitors read up a bit before going to the show so following the storyline is easier. The theater itself is old and... More

Hamilton! I've been to the Richard Rodgers three-times already, I saw If/Then twice booth seating on the rear mezzanine. This time, I came to see Hamilton. Right now, it is Broadway's hottest ticket! It's sold out everyday but they have a lottery drawing every show. I was lucky enough to secure a ticket last March for a rear mezzanine row... More

My husband and I see many Broadway shows. We were so excited that we had landed hard-to-find tickets to see Hamilton. This show is so great and deserves to be in a much better venue that the Richard Rodgers Theatre. There is no legroom, but even worse, there is no footroom or place to put down a purse if you...

My husband and I were lucky enough to see the play Hamilton here. We got seats a little too far back; the overhanging balcony marred our view of the upper part of the stage. But we enjoyed our experience, and the theater staff were friendly and helpful.

I was privileged enough to get ticked to the show, "If/Then." The show was phenomenal, because hello... Idina Menzel. However, I was captivated by the beauty and comfort of Richard Rodgers Theatre! I don't really know what I was expecting, but the elegance and feel of the theatre... Everything else was gravy. I usually get cold in theaters, but even... More

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

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.
