This show was amazing. Great theater location and great seating. The audience was on its feet begging for more. They did not disappoint.

I always enjoy going to City Center to see a play. The seats are comfortable not jammed in. The lobby area has a bar with drinks and light snacks. The productions are always well mounted, and the place is very well-kept.

In the heart of Manhattan, there resides a wonderful concert venue. Originally Designed in the last century as a masonic lodge this building still glistens with its charm. It has been redone and makes a great spot to see anything. The sight lines are superb and the theatre has so much artist touches from the gilded age it is a... More

Fall for Dance is NY City Center's premium dance festival, and one of the very best in NYC. Tickets for this incredible event are priced UNDER $25. The program sells out quickly, so plan ahead.

We saw the play 'the Most Deserving' last night at City Center. I had forgotten what a great venue it is, and the show is fantastic. Get tickets while you can.

We attended Tales from Red Vienna, the story of a woman who turns to prostitution during WWI (Why? Sorry, no spoiler here). The show has bits of humor, but basically it's melodrama. The venue is small, which is nice - one feels connected to the actors. All in all, we enjoyed our evening and would return to this cozy theater... More

I have gone to a few plays at City Center that I found very enjoyable. As my office was just down the street I often stopped in to see their offerings. A well kept clean pleasant place. I have been to special occasions here as well, they provide spaces for these as well.
