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

Saw An American in Paris here in the balcony. The show itself was terrific, but the seats are so cramped together that I was sweating while sitting still. Felt like the guy sitting next to me was in my lap and I was in his.

Right on Time Square this theatre is 120 years old so has a very English Victorian feel to it. I attended a matinee so it wasn't too crowded and we arrived in plenty of time to get seated and settle in without a rush. Apparently US theatres don't sell ice cream which we found very strange. Really beautiful inside just... More

I saw American In Paris ($32 rush balcony tickets). Avoid the balcony seats. I was so disappointed with my seat. The balcony section at this theater is more like two balconies back. My neck hurt from having to look so far down and there is absolutely NO legroom. I'm not that tall either. I definitely enjoying visiting other theaters and... More

Saw An American in Paris here last week, and had a really enjoyable time. The staff members were friendly, the bathrooms and theater area are clean, and because I'm a short girl and had a very tall person sit in front of me blocking my view, the usher gave me a booster seat. Seems silly, but it worked. I could... More

We recently were in NYC and saw a nice production of "An American in Paris". This was a Wednesday night 8pm show and the theater was far from a full crowd. The production was top-notch with a cast that was very talented. This production had a lot of dancing. We were impressed with the leads' combination of voice and dancing... More

Staff was friendly throughout. We purchased water at the bar. Theater is well maintained and clean... (Only issue was the lady sitting next to my husband that acted like a child and kept checking her emails on her phone! So, her phone kept lighting up and this was quite distracting.) - Maybe staff should keep a closer eye on this... 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.
