I saw the production of " American in Paris", which was a great show. Talented performers sang many recognizable songs and danced wonderfully. The ever changing set designs were completed in an excellent display of creativity. The Palace theatre is an older building, which means that the seats are close together with not much room in between the rows. The... More

Theater is intimate and had some ornate details that made it more interesting than some of the more modern theaters I've been to in other states. We were rear mezzanine, Row L, seats 120-122. We had a direct view of the stage and could see all the action and hear very well. I have bad eyes so I can't really... More

Great Location. Excellent seats for 55.00 p.p. A lot of shows no longer have dialogue. Praise God this wasn't one of them. We loved it. The music was Awesome.

Attended a Broadway show for the first time in NY and it was a great experience. The Palace Theater has its old world charm. You are actually transported to a different era - that how its interiors are. The show too was spectacular - creating a Paris in WWII age with great sets and technology.

Coming to an end soon. What a great musical. Wonderful dance, set changes, singing, acting and music. We thought it was right up there with the best shows that we had seen. Might be in London in 2017. If this is your genre don't miss it

Went to see "An American in Paris", great show. The theatre itself is clean and well maintained, comfortable and plenty of helpful staff in attendance. Interval drinks can be ordered in advance. I've noticed some negative remarks in other comments regarding seating. As with any other theatre, you get what you pay for. Take advice at the box office before... More

The revival of An American in Paris is fresh and vibrant. It is infused with romance. The music remains fun. The dancing is wonderful and the staging creative. The girls are slender reeds that sway to and fro. The male leads are elegant but funny. This is a great, award winning production.

Attend "An American in Paris" with my 14 year old daughter on our one night in NYC. We loved the show, had great seats (2nd row, center stage) and thought the theatre was very classy with beautiful chandeliers, velvet seats, ornate crown molding, etc. Most attendees were well dressed for the show, however we did see folks in jean shorts...

My adult son and I decided to see An American in Paris during our recent visit to New York. Part of our decision to attend this show was due to the positive reviews it won from critics. It was the first time we have ever attended a Broadway show. The theater itself is quite beautiful. However, the seats are extremely... More

We had the interesting experience of seeing the live Broadway version of American in Paris, and then seeing the movie that inspired it on tv just a couple of weeks later. Pretty cool, and I was amazed by how different they are. The lead dancer is very much a ballet dancer, and it shows in how they have constructed the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
