The place is so tight and the stairs are harsh... If you have legs issues like me, don’t take the gallery (which is cheaper and therefore appealing), as there’s no elevator and you will suffer. The iconic play was nice, but I saw better shows...More

Great old theatre, fab singing and dancing, great band. Loved it. Drinks completely over priced but that broadway - take your own water 😉

This is one of the classic theaters on Broadway. Saw Chicago in the summer. Good production and the theater is nice. Could stand more bathrooms, but overall nice experience. Good place for a show

Cosy, intimate feel to this older theatre on Broadway. We bough the cheapest seats going and had a brilliant middle of theatre view for the show.

It was a last minute decision to see this play so I did not do any research beforehand but I should have. The Venue/Staff: The Theatre is dated. The ticket was relatively cheaper than other productions on the Broadway strip. One disadvantage is that there...More

Hello, Sorry to hear you didn't have the experience you were hoping for. Would you mind sending an email to theatreoperations@shubertorg.com regarding your experience? Best, Theatre Operations

Rundown theater. Two tiny restrooms. Six bucks for a pint of water. Second-rate cast, including an awkward Asian twist on Roxy. Shabby stage, props and costumes that had nothing to do with the Jazz Age. I’ve been to better high school productions
