All see in this theater is good, at least on the first floor where I sat. I can't speak for the balcony but the theater is not that big. Its a nice comfy size. The Aladdin was absolutely fabulous and a must see on Broadway.

This theater is beautiful. It's large but not overwhelming. They also have plenty of staff on hand to help you find anything you need to.

My first show, we saw Aladdin (I would highly recommend it). The theatre was felt very old and authentic. It's design was really nice. The seats were very padded but not the best. Viewing, I couldn't see any obstruction anywhere. I would recommend this theatre.

A nice venue, The theater is in decent shape, though the seats were a little on the stiff side. Good acoustics and decent staff.

Anything is fine. I have seen shorts to jackets. It is all what you like. I tend to dress better because I like an evening at the theater, but there is no actual code.

The seats were tight and the space was small, my partner is 6 ft and it was a tight squeeze so it maybe worth contacting the theatre to try and get a more spacious seating area :)
