The Booth Theatre is located near the corner of W 45th Street and Broadway in the Theatre District of Manhattan. It is also located on Shubert Alley which runs between W 45th Street and W 44th Street. And since Shubert Alley is considered the geographical center of Broadway Theatre, the Booth Theatre is also in the exact center of Broadway... More

This show was laugh out loud hysterical from beginning to end. This is adults only for an open-minded audience. I would love to go back and see this show again. I laughed as much as I did when I saw Book of Mormon - if this helps put into perspective the type of humor this show emphasises. It almost seems... More

This was riotously funny. Don't bring Grandma or anyone else who's easily offended (and no one under 15….maybe even a bit older) or anyone who's very devoutly religious and lacking a sense of humor! Skilled puppetry plus acting. Not sure how the lead was able to keep his two characters straight and manipulate the puppet. The set is compact but... More

If you want to see this show in New York, you have to see it now! Its last Broadway performance is Jan. 3, 2016, after which point it moves to London. The current ensemble includes Bob Saget, who plays it rather straight. Steven Boyer, however, steals the show, however, in a Tony Award-nominated performance. You may have heard that this... More

The theatre is beautiful but the play is awful. If you need vulgarity and violence to be exposed to an existentialist take that " hell is the others" or that right,wrong and resligions are man-made up creations to explain away our failure to love and listen to others, then this is your show. If you rather partake of an intelligent... More

I was blown away! I walked into "Hand to God" with pretty low expectations - having received free tickets from a friend was my incentive for attending. I held the notion that a play based on a puppet could not hold my attention for very long - boy was I wrong! I am so happy I went! The story line... More

My husband & I wanted to see a Broadway show & as soon as I saw the flyer for "Hand to God" I knew I had to see it...it had puppets ;) The play did not let me down. It was jaw-droppingly funny with really great acting. It was amazing how quickly you saw the puppet as its own individual... More

We saw Elephant Man at this intimate theater. The actors were amazing and the play was excellent. The seating is comfortable and it's fun to wait for the actors to come out the stage door.

Just saw this show. It starts off slowly but very soon gets you in. It is irreverent. Lots of foul language but the puppet is hilarious. Alex Mandrell plays the lead and was fantastic. How he can remember his lines as well as his foul mouthed hand is amazing. Loved the show. Definitely recommend.

We laughed our way through most of the show despite the fact that it's a disturbing story of a mother & son reeling from the unexpected death of their unhappy patriarch & the way others use that loss to get closer to them. The acting from all five actors was superb, especially Geneva Carr as the mother. We were initially... 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.
