We loved it!!! Hilariously fun, mischievous and so real to our times. FYI, mature content. Surpasses rated R in a humorous way. Highly recommend watching it and theater is just steps away from great dining which makes it ideal for an evening of dinner and a show with a couple of friends.

Came for a performance of Avenue q. Absolutely loved it. Definitely would recommend it ( as long as you're not easily offended... that bit about full frontal puppet nudity? Not a joke.). Not a bad seat in the house, so don't get over that. I was able to get a discounted ticket on sh, which worked fine. Drinks for sale... More

Wasn't sure what to expect - we were able to get discounted tickets so thought we would give it a try. What a great show! The actors did an amazing job with their characters and voicing the puppets. Some of it was a bit raunchy but overall very funny and an enjoyable night out. Would highly recommend

We saw a production here in Dec 16, and it was very enjoyable. Friendly staff showed us in made sure we had good seats (it wasn't full). Not that it mattered because it's set up Odeon-style, so all seats have a great view. Sound carried really well, good lighting - we had a really nice time all in all.

I can't believe it. I got tickets as a Christmas Present and I initially was a little pissed because I thought it was a children's show (which is was) but it was actually good! The lights were neat and the music and dancing was AWESOME! I mean I really went to the show with a chip on my shoulder and... More

I've seen two different shows at New World Stages and high recommend the location. There are several theaters inside and they are all on the small side making every seat a good seat. We recently saw iluminate which was a fun for the whole family.

I went to see the show with family. Didn't know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. I expected just dancing but there was a storyline. They even had audience participation. It was an enjoyable show.

I had excellent seats. The staff was awesome, even delivered drinks to your seat. Gary Coleman died in 2010. The storyline is outdated. For younger people they don't even know who he is. I could have snoozed but didn't want to be rude. Pass on this one if you have a choice.

I love New World Stages (The theater) Great drinks allow you to have candy and drinks in your seat without requiring adult drinks in a sippy cut like most Broadway shows. I can only give average to the show Illuminate. The light effects are good and so are the dancers but I find the storyline confusing and so did a... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
