Lovely theater, but tight seating

Recently refurbished and quite nice. Saw Hamilton there. Loved the play, but for a 6 foot man, the seats are tight with little leg room. I am sure it was originally designed... read more

This play changes the form. the subject matter is compelling, the dialogue comes fast and furious. the energy of the young and top of their game performers blows people back in their seats.

We went to see Hamilton. Great show. Amazing. However, the seats are crammed in super tight and very steep. You can feel the greed imagining how they squeezed in as many seats as possible with little regard for comfort. The decor of the theatre is cheesy and dated and the sound system is mediocre. The layout on line is very... More

Great service. Loved Hamilton. Beware, however, of pick pocketers. I was standing alone and a man came up next to me and pretended to be with me. He had on earphones and was singing gospel music. The minute the line started moving, he pretended his date hadn't showed up and left the line. I really think he was waiting for... More

Recently refurbished and quite nice. Saw Hamilton there. Loved the play, but for a 6 foot man, the seats are tight with little leg room. I am sure it was originally designed for shorter people years ago, but if it were not for the fantastic play, it would have been difficult to last thru two hours+.

Upon arriving at RRT will call, we produced the email confirmation of our tickets for Hamilton. We were told in a very unhelpful manner that we needed to leave the theater and print the tickets out. We tried reasoning with the employee by saying that it was obvious that we had paid (summarily) for these tickets. While that was obvious... More

Clean, good view from the seats. We saw Hamilton, which was an amazing show. My favorite spot is stage door to the right of the entrance, where you can meet the actresses and actors.

The seats in the orchestra are all on a rise, so any seat is a good seat. The balcony is pretty far back over the orchestra . It is a beautiful theatre with ornate lighting fixtures Men's room is in a strange place ( on the right) .

Great show (Hamilton) and a beautiful theatre, but I think people were smaller when it was built. My husband is 6'4" and his knees were hitting his chin. No leg room. Thankfully, the couple on the aisle offered to trade seats. New York at its finest. Thank you!

I have learned from experience that most Broadway theaters are poor quality, easy to get trampled on as what happened to me this time and you feel like a sardine when you are seated. Still they put on the best productions you would want to see and Hamilton is no exception. Now playing at the Richard Rodgers theater. It is... 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.
