Had front row seats to the show Chicago. Typical broadway theatre. My seats were great and had no complaints. Show went on without a hitch. Recommend the show as well as the theatre itself.

A classic Bob Fosse musical. The cast is fantastic. Theater is an old NYC building and the stage design was good but not spectacular (as you might expect going to a Broadway show)

I'm a theatre buff, and LOVE to see new-to-me spaces. I was psyched to go see CHICAGO at the Ambassador, but I was pretty underwhelmed by the space. Pros: Intimate atmosphere provides great views of the stage and smaller crowds. Eye-popping chandelier in auditorium ceiling....More

You can call 212-239-6200 or 800-447-7400. There is no direct line to the theater, but you will be able to speak with the theater and ticketing reps.
