I think I smiled all the way through. Aladdin was fantastic. All the actors were brilliant. My favourite was the genie who cracked me up on more then one occasion. We had limited view stalls tickets, and I could see everything for a cheaper price.

This is a beautiful, very spacious, very old-school theater. Our sight lines were excellent. We did not feel overcrowded as we have in some other Broadway theaters.

We went to see the spectacular performance of Aladdin here and were very impressed with how beautiful the theatre is. We also found the information about the history of the building really interesting and how it has been restored.

The architecture is very ornate. This theatre was built in 1903. Seats were comfortable but not much leg room. The show was fantastic. Genie was great. It seemed the show was a sell out. Great for kids.

We visited and saw Aladdin. It was an awesome production and we thoroughly enjoyed the show. The theater was beautiful and ornate. You can sense the history when you are inside. The seats were a little bit on the small side with very limited legroom....More

There is no where to put your bags, but you ARE allowed to take them into the theater with you. I was afraid of the same dilemma and didn't buy anything but saw quite a few people with bags

You can take photos of the theater before or after the show. Most productions do not allow photos of any kind to be taken during a performance.
