One of my fave places in NYC for a show. I've seen musical acts, comedy, and other traveling shows. The interior is stunning. It's probably the most beautiful theater in NYC. The seats could probably use some new cushions but that's to be expected...still more...More

If you get the opportunity to see a show at the Beacon Theater, do so. Classic architecture, comfortable seating, good sight lines and great acoustics. What else can I say?

It was a sold out show! The building was Amazing and we sat in the lower upper balcony. My concerns is that they keep you outside the doors for a long time. It was too crowded, most venues are an hour before, so it could...More

Saw Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds here in June. The theater is beautifully restored, the sound was amazing, and the staff were not only very professional and courteous, but really friendly too. Great place!

I've never seen him in person and probably would never but comedy shows are not my thing. I would suggest calling the theater and see if they can help you. I personally would not take my children to see him.

When I am going to a gig at The Beacon Theater I like to go to Malachy's Donegal Inn on West 72nd Street. No live music but a great wee bar.
