Actually for all ages. I've seen Wicked twice on Broadway and twice with national touring companies in Connecticut, so when I was taking my12 year old granddaughter to her first Broadway show, I chose Wicked for several reasons. The sets and music are great. The story is familiar if you've seen the Wizard of Oz (but stands alone even if... More

I took my 12-year-old granddaughter and she loved it. We were in the 12th row so up close. The set is awesome. Take a jacket though because even though hot outside, it was freezing in the theater. Outstanding acting and singing and dancing. The story line is good and offers the chance for great dialogue after about accepting differences and... More

4th time for me... still a big wawoooo... For the first half at least, the 2nd half is less amazing. The plot is far from being perfect... a lot of things do not make any sens... still... Wawoooo

Favorite of all time -- it's difficult to beat this one! The lyrics are clever, the storyline moves along at a great pace, and the entire cast works in perfect sync. The set is beautiful, and they even have great souvenirs!

I have seen this show a dozen times now and always enjoy something new in the interpretation. The Broadway production is outstanding starting with the quality of the Gershwin Theatre. You really can't get a bad seat. I've won the lottery and sat in the front row and I've also sat up the back and still had the energy of... More

I've heard this show was really good, just now getting to see it for the first time. It lived up to all the hype, just a terrific take on the book, lots of good humor mixed in with a great score. The cast, especially Elphaba and Glenda, were excellent.

The theater is very comfortable and the musical is amazing! The scenario is great and the performances are just perfect. I have been to this show twice and I strongly recommend it. It might be difficult to understand the whole story if you don't understand English very well and if you don't know the story of The Wizard of Oz.... More

Absolutely loved this musical and is possibly my favourite yet. I was looking between a few different ones but after a friend stressed I see this I caved. Best decision I've ever made and made my trip worth it - a fantastic musical and a fantastic cast. Kudos to all - loved it!

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.
