“Betrayal; a disappointing play”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

We saw Betrayal and were quite disappointed. Although the actors were fine, they just couldn't make a weak play strong. So much more could have been done with the plot, which centered on the lives of a couple in which there had been an extramarital affair. The potential power and pain was lost in silly and immature interactions. The cast just couldn't make this the play believable. It was a real snooze. At the conclusion the audience provided the most faint and polite applause I have heard in 20 years of theater-going. We chatted with several other audience members around us afterwards, and there was agreement about the boredom created. A shame.

“Fun place with a lots to do & see.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Love Broadway with its many choices of plays & musicals, easy to find tickets even last minutes and possibility of discounted tickets for some shows at Times Square's booth.

“Wicked on Broadway - truly wicked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Musicals aren't usually our thing but the whole family loved Wicked (even the teenage boy). An extravaganza of great music and laugh-out-loud fun. It's easy to see why a show on Broadway is different to seeing a show anywhere else.

“Everyone must see a Broadway show in their life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

The essential character of New York is in the theatre experience. There is something for everyone here. You just can't pass up a Tony award winning show. For visitors I would say to look for discount tickets at the Times Square booth or online.

“Cerebrally Irrverently!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Classic South Park humor that pokes fun at religious beliefs and varied social mores. The performances were brilliant, the theater itself beautiful but small (made to seem smaller due to those that purchased standing only tickets). This is not for everyone but if you like South Park, this is a must see! I can't wait to see it again!
