Before the COVID
Feb 2020
Before the COVID, we saw Hadestown back in February. Great show. Very nice theater. We stayed at the Intercontinental, and the walk was short to the theater.

Beautiful Old Small Theater
Feb 2020
We were lucky to see Hadestown this month. The play was fabulous, but we felt crippled by the time it was done. There is absolutely no leg room in the front row mezzanine. However, the view of the stage was terrific. The stage was unique itself with parts that turned and lowered and raised. The play made up for the lack of leg room.

Great show, Weird restroom placement
Jan 2020 • Friends
Saw Hadestown from the cheaper balcony seats! The rating is for the theatre not the show (which is phenomenal). The front row of these is a clear view of the whole stage. I’m usually bothered by heights, but these seats didn’t bother me. The women’s restroom is on the left side of the house up the stairs between floors, and the men’s is the same on the right. The line starts heading down the stairs, so it makes movement on the stairs very difficult. The seats were cramped but not the worst I’ve been in on Broadway. It was about a million degrees inside though and I never did get cool.

See Hadestown if you can. Fabulous show.

The theatre for the lack of leg room gets a 2. The show Hadestown gets a 5. It’s fun going to broadway. The 4th row mezzanine allowed a great view of the stage.

Good but Small Theater
Sep 2019
This is definitely a smaller theater and it did feel a little cramped coming in from outside (the entrance doors lead directly into the auditorium). I was excited because I won the lottery for Hadestown and ended up getting great box seats and did not feel squished at all.

Charming theater
Jan 2020 • Couples
This is a small broadway theatre with great sound and presentation. Unfortunately, with this small size comes long lines and difficulties with common facilities, so order ahead for drinks and plan wash room needs accordingly. Also, seats are tight, so select as you feel best for your needs.

Charming theater but tight seating
Dec 2019
Hadestown the show is definitely 5-star but alas, this review's for the theater. While charming inside (as all theaters of this vintage are), it is a bit tight and cramped inside. The seats are very tight - even my wife at a petite and trim 5'3" found her knees pressed up against the back of the row in front of us. Thankfully, the show is terrific so the time spent goes by quickly and you don't notice the discomfort so much (though goodness knows how those folks who are somewhat padded will manage). Our seats were orchestra center row R on the aisle (112 & 113) and the view of the stage was great. There was a support post just kitty-corner to the left of me, but it didn't interfere with the view at all.

Be aware that there's only one set of bathrooms for men and women apiece - and the line for the women's was amazingly long at intermission - so go before and spend the break stretching your legs! The staff, however, appear to be well aware of the theater's space limitations and do a brisk and competent job at organizing the lines and seating the patrons efficiently.

Nice Theatre - great show
Dec 2019
Hadestown was OUTSTANDING. The seating is tight, especially with everyone having winter coats. And like every other theatre, there are lots of stairs to get to the restrooms. Good staff.

Tips for patrons
Dec 2019 • Couples
The show was spectacular however, if you are over 6ft 3 the seats will be uncomfortable if not impossible to sit in for the duration of the show. (We were in L Orch row E two seats in from the aisle) This is not a theater you could chance a non aisle seat. Beautiful theater. Unlike other theaters there is no bell, light dimming twice, or notification that intermission will be ending soon so carefully time your bathroom trip if needed.

Loved going underground to Hadestown
Dec 2019 • Couples
My husband and I saw Hadestown for the second time this past Saturday and loved it! We saw it for the first time in June right before they won 8 Tony awards and loved it then, and I got these tickets just before the Tony awards as I wanted to make sure we got Center orchestra and see the original cast again! Everyone sounded wonderful and it was even more magical the second time around. Beautiful music, awe inspiring performances from Andre DeShields, Eva Noblezada, Reeve Carney, Patrick Page, Amber Gray, and the amazing ensemble cast and musicians, fantastic set and decor...especially “Wait for Me”! A must-see!!!
