Excellent drama now playing here at the Booth Theater. Excellent acoustics but very tight seats. You must get up to let people in no matter how thin you are. Bathrooms are more modernized. Snacks even sold inside at the seats, an unusually for a NYC theater.

The Booth Theater is a small, intimate theater located on Broadway. We were fortunate enough to see Bradley Cooper and Patricia Clarkson in the Elephant Man, a beautiful production. It was so simply staged but powerfully presented. We loved the venue and the play.

Saw Elephant Man here with Bradley Cooper. Stunning performances from the whole cast. Such a small theatre and intimate setting to be close up to the stars. Emotional, moving and jaw dropping acting

We went to see Bradley Cooper in "The Elephant Man" here at the Booth Theater, and the play was magnificent. Catching this play was totally unplanned, as we were walking, saw the marquee, and had to get tickets! This theater is somewhat small and intimate, so you really get to be up close and in the moment with the actors.... More

We saw the Elephant Man with Bradley Cooper and it was fantastic. This theater is intimate and makes you feel like you are part of the stage or in a living room with the players. Loved the history and architecture of the building.

Wow wow wow I loved The Elephant Man. The Theater is gorgeous, and I was surprised that I actually had legroom. (I'm 6'1" and usually I'm very cramped in old theaters.)

The Booth Theater is surprisingly small. This production of The Elephant Man was gorgeous and very moving - I loved it. Bradley Cooper, Alessandro Nivolo and Patricia Clarkson were all wonderful, and all three came out after the Sunday matinee to sign programs and greet the crowd, which was really lovely and generous.

Not sure I have words for Bradley Cooper's acting in The Elephant Man, the man is simply an awesome actor! Booth theater is really nice, small and intimate. Only thing is that we had 1st row mezzanine seats and they were quite uncomfortable. If you are a big person, make sure you avoid those. Again, you don't wanna miss seeing... More

FANTASTIC! Bradley Cooper is AWESOME in this! A wonderful theatre for this production because the smaller and more intimate theater lends itself nicely to it. Go, go, go see this!

I saw The Glassmenagerie on Feb. 8. and was completely blown away by it. The play in itself may not be the greatest one of all times - but the performance was. The cast was outstanding, but Celia Keenan-Bolger, who playes Laura, stood out. This actress has a sence of authenticity that I have never experienced before during any stage... More
