We were here for the Chicago show. It's an experience in itself to walk through such an ancient theatre, some frames of the Hollywood movies cross your thoughts! Sure, the theatre's seating is cramped, leaves practically no space to walk past the guests seated next...More

The Times Square Diner was an excellent choice. Reasonable price, close to the theater, quick and friendly service.

We booked in advance, to guarantee best seats, you could go to the box office in Times Square, but be prepared to queue for tickets, that whilst they might be cheaper, but there’s no guarantee what you’ll get.
