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.

If/Then is the new production with Idina Menzel and LaChanze. If a play hires very talented actors and has a terribly boring and manipulated plot, then it is still a flop. Aside from not making much of a connection with the audience, the principals in the play make superficial connections with one another. Yet in an effort to bepolitically correct,... More

Idina Menzel's new show. It was fantastic! Loved it! A few songs contain profanity, but nothing you haven't already heard before on the subway.

I attended an afternoon performance at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. The staffmanaed the queue of attendees very well. This is an older theatre so seating for taller individual ( taller than 5'5") may be uncomfortable for long periods of time ,Snacks and bevergaes are available in the main lobby area. Richard Rodger is accessible via the subway and taxi. There... More

Beautiful theater, had a great seat but very limited leg room. Menzel was terrific; show was in previews and still needs work. Menzel gets top billing but rest of cast does a great job as well.

We saw Romeo and Juliet, which was a solid production with top notch acting. You can take your beer and wine to the seats, which was nice, and the building was beautifully decorated. The only drawback was that the seats were very cramped (at least in the balcony seating), which started to become distracting after the first 45 minutes. I... More

Saw Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad in Romeo and Juliet tonight. The play is done in a contemporary setting with minimal props. Romeo enters riding a motorcycle! The actors enter from the audience many times. My husband and I were enthralled with the intensity of the actors. Tears were seen rolling down the cheeks of Romeo and Juliet--and the audience....

We saw Romeo and Juliet on August 25th at this theatre. We got rear mezzanine seats because we got the student priced tickets, which were a great deal. The box office lady was fairly nice and gave us a couple options before we chose the student tickets. There was also a promo code for discount orchestra but we were on... More
