Broadway theatres are smaller than people expect, and legroom is notoriously bad no matter which one you visit. This is no exception. But the raked orchestra level is somewhat of a unique feature for this venue, and the sightlines in this house are way above average. I've seen two stellar shows here, IN THE HEIGHTS and HAMILTON, and sat on... More

Saw Hamilton here on a Thursday evening. Amazing show, but this is about the venue. It was a great little theater. We were in the upper mez on the left side, row E. Seats were great, could see everything. Bathroom lines are super efficient on the men's side. No complaints at all about how this place!

We saw Hamilton here (which was incredible!!!). The views were pretty great from the rear mezzanine (I was in Row D and I thought the views were good). There is virtually no leg room whatsoever. I am 5' 7" and I still felt cramped. Another point here is that there is only one bathroom (at the very first level), so... More

Theatre is smallish and a little cramped but lovely. The production of Hamilton is the most amazing Broadway play I have ever seen. If you are thinking about buying tickets, then do and promise you will be thrilled‼️

This is a must see hip hop play about Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. Excellent music, set, actors. Standing room only! If you are not a regular NYC theater patron, be prepared for smaller seats because this is one of many of the original theaters with original seating. There were ignorant people complaining about the seats as they were large... More

After seeing Hamilton, my email to their customer service: I want to express my extreme displeasure regarding my family's visit to your Richard Rogers Theater last week. We waited MONTHS to see Hamilton with great anticipation only to be completely disappointed with the incredibly small seats we had purchased. We sat in the mezzanine (RMezz) Row D seats 6,8,10 and...

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

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.
