I'm reviewing the theater here, not the show "Hamilton"....however, the show is phenomenal! This is an old theater that has been well preserved and maintained. It is just beautiful. Ornate gilt carvings with rich red seats. It has not been updated to "modern standards." The seating is very tight. Both the width of the seats as well as the space... More

We just went to see Hamilton and we thought this theatre was just beautiful! The details are so ornate and it was wonderful to see this old building in such good condition. It really takes you back in time and makes you appreciate just how much work and skill people used to put into buildings like this. I found the... More

The theatre is lovely. And Hamilton was worth every penny (triple face for balcony seats) Broadway theatres are not huge like some I have been to in other cities, so all the seats are good, even way up in balcony. It is a bit cramped up there, so travel light - small purse, light coat (or check it if you... More

I recently went to NYC to see Hamilton, and while I have been in numerous Broadway Theaters I found this one to be particularly old fashion and problematic. The show was great and I would recommend everybody to go see it. The people working in the Theater were very good and helpful, the building itself should be renovated. From its... More

History isn't usually comfortable. This theater is not spacious, especially considering every show is at capacity. It is, however, a lovely, old-world building. I was way less crowded in my seat than I was at the Ham 4 Ham show outside!!!

This review is about the theatre ( not the play) we saw Hamilton here & the Theatre was completely packed ( no surprise). This is an old theatre with old theatre Charm. Ornate trim on walls & ceilings. Smaller width seats with zero leg room. The seats themselves were comfortable, but your knees will touch the seats in front of... More

Theatre is old, so old in fact that there are no elevators. Not a problem for me, but I'm just glad that my elderly mother didn't have a heart attack getting to our seats to see Hamilton. Even other patrons gave her worried looks as she climbed the stairs. And she wasn't the only one who has having a hard... More

Be prepared for stairs, seating so packed in you can't move your legs once you sit down, and don't even think about using the restroom. I would have sat in mud in a gutter to see Hamilton, so I didn't notice how uncomfortable I was until I tried to walk down the stairs to leave.

Seriously? $1200 for fair seats and the show has every PC overtone one can imagine. We were there when the VP Elect Mike Pence showed up and was booed by the clan of "we know betters". Followed up by a dressing down by the cast at the end was just too much. We didn't come to a play so we... More

Like so many, I purchased an expensive seat during a short trip to New York, it didn't though guarantee a good seat / position. Seated way up the top towards the rear, had a small and uncomfortable seat and was never able to get into the spirit of the show. An older style theatre which could be ok but need... 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.
