When and if this show comes back I would definitively make it a priority to see it again. I've seen 100's of shows in New York so far and this is on top of them all. It was Funny, exciting, daring, intense, and best of all breathtaking. The best parts of all the shows is the interaction with the crowd.... More

I was excited to see this show because my wife told me that a lot of people missed the opportunity to get tickets and it’s one of the only (if not the only) magic shows on Broadway. The theater is great, very intimate, and the crowd was ready to go for a great show. Unfortunately this was a major bomb.... More

My son was not into a Broadway play so we caught the Illusionists at the Marquis. Get your tickets at 50% off after 4 pm.

I went to see Jeckyl and Hyde with Constantine Maroulis and Deborah Cox. The performance was great because of their non traditional voices (they don't sound like Broadway at all) and the interpretation of the play and songs was not typical at all. I loved it. The theatre location is good because its in the Marriott Marquis, very central to... More

I was blown away by Constantine Maroulis and Deborah Cox's performances in this musical! My expectations were beyond exceeded. What a fantastic show! Be sure to catch it during its stay. The theater is very conveniently located and has abundant bathrooms compared to other theaters. I would love to see other shows here as well.

I saw the original years ago and in my mind it was the perfect musical. It's not that this version wasn't good, it was just different. The tow leads have amazing voices. Constantine was excellent as Mr. Hyde. It was just, well different.

The night I saw it Ricky Martin was not on that was a disappointment. Eva voice was not as strong as I would have liked. It was great hearing the music again. I liked it very much.

I loved the Phantom of the Opera, so i couldn't believe the lousy song writing that was done for Evita by the same guy! Ricky Martin was really the only saving grace for me. He is very charismatic. Without him, i fear the show would tank pretty hard for most people.

I've been on EVITA twice and can compare: Eva by Christina DeCicco is much better than Elena Roger who just scream and screech but not SING! Ricky Martin is in perfect shape and lyric voice of Rachel Potter as Mistress is promising big future!

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.
