“Abba”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We had paid quite a bit of money to see this and we were a little disappointed. This may have been because we had just come off the QM2 and the entertainment on the ship was second to none. The beginning of the show was not that good although it did get better as it progressed. Would probably give 7/10.

“Very Busy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

It's great that they took away a part of the road in Times Square to allow walkers to traverse the Time Square area, but I think it would be better to still cut down on some of the cars there. I think the half price tickets line is kinda dreary to see all those people trying to get a deal on Broadway rather than just paying the full price fare. Kind of depressing. Being on Broadway did not have the allure I thought it would. I would go to Central Park before I went to Broadway.

“Don't die without going to Broadway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

What an experience. Everyone should make it to Broadway. There are no shows like the Broadway shows. Every performance is like a premier. We went in in summer and winter. I recommend winter, no homeless people on the streets and people dress nice.

“Phantom of The Opera - awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Saw Phantom of The Opera on Christmas Day. Had great seats. 14th row back and dead center. Loved the show. Glad I bought good seats. Was impressed with how organized getting in and out of the theater was and that the show actually started on time!

“Best show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Barry Manilow on Broadway at the St. James Theater. What an amazing show!!!!! Only there until the beginning of March. Do yourself a favor and try and get a ticket. You will come out of that theater feeling really good.
