“Al Paccino in Glengarry Glen Ross”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This was the first play we saw in New York ( saw 3 plays, 5 musicals & the Ballet in 7 days).
We booked our seats in advance to be sure we had tickets. It was a treat to see actors of such calibre in one show. Knowing in advance that the language could be offensive to some, it did not come as a shock & suited the characters. Enjoyed the show & then waited outside to "meet" & photograph the actors. They were all so gracious & quick to sign an autograph or pose for a photo. In "real life" they are all so much smaller than they appear on stage. A well performed drama which we thoroughly enjoyed.

“Terriffic show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Gore Vidal's "The Best Man" at this theater is a teriffic show. The cast is excellent. The show is also very interesting and really captures the aura of a political convention. The set decoration is outstanding. You should see this play.

“Nice theater / Great show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

Nice and comfortable theater. All the seat were close and I was able to secure 50% off from TKTS for Gore Vidal's The Best Man, which has an impressive star-studded cast!

“Great theater - great show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

"THE BEST MAN" was a great show. the Theater was clean and nice. We sat in balcony and had excellent view of the stage. I don't think any seat in the house would be a bad view. Small and intimate - I would see another show there for sure.
