My boyfriend and I went to see the Elephant Man in February 2015. The show itself was amazing, of course. I was very surprised about how intimate the theater is. I was expecting a much larger theater like the ones we have here in New Orleans. When I walked in, I was delighted. We were only about 10 rows from... More

Boy what a play...I always enjoy going to the Booth b/c it's such a beautiful, intimate theater. I've loved everything I've seen there so far (Glass Menagerie, Virginia Woolf) and Hand to God was no exception. If you enjoy shows like Book of Mormon, then you'll love this one. Very thought provoking. Would love to go see it again!

We wouldn't dwell on the excellent show 'Elephant Man' for one simple reason: it is a limited engagement and would be over in less than a month, so we would instead opt for describing the theater itself. It is a quite imposing old theater bearing the name of the brother of Lincoln's assassin. The interior is richly decorated featuring a... More

Bradley Cooper and his fellow actors were simply amazing. The play was fantastic and beautifully performed. A must see play in our opnion.

I have always thought of Bradley Cooper as a handsome, hollywood star. Another pretty face and a pretty good actor. Three weeks ago, we went to see American Sniper and I was really impressed by his portrayal of Chris Kyle and I realized he was much more than a pretty face. However, his performance as the Elephant Man has catapulted... More

We love the coziness and intimacy of this small theatre. In our opinion, there is not a bad seat in the house. Recently we saw Bradley Cooper in the Elephant Man here and it was truly a delight. Bradley became fascinated with this true story in his youth and went on to visit all of the locations in London and... More

It's a great historic theatre. Really quaint and there's not really a bad seat in the house. You're close to the stage which was a real treat for me. The only reason it's not rated a 5 is because the rocks glass drink size was $15. I thought that was a bit outrageous.

Went to the Booth Theater to see The Elephant Man. The show was OK but I did not enjoy the theater. First, they opened the doors much later than the published door open time and left people waiting in line outside on a frigid New York evening. Next, the seats feature very little leg room and if you a person... More

The theater is great and the reason for this review is The Elephant Man - if you have the opportunity to go see this you absolutely should. Bradley Cooper and Patricia Clarkson were amazing! It makes you laugh and causes you to be tearful. Just an absolutely amazing performance.

Absolutely stunning from the first minute till last! Bradley Cooper's and Patricia's Clarkson acting was unbelievable! Definitely recommend to see it if only possibilities allow you to. Patricia Clarkson was funny & amazingly elegant in her role. The end was very emotional, even bringing to tears. Not a theatre critic, but personally 10/10. One more time - amazing!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
