Hamilton is a buzzy show. Worth going out of your way to see.

The theatre is rather cramped but the production oh Hamilton which I saw there was intense and enjoyable. The seats in the mezzanine had an awesome view.

I know theaters are all about seats, but this one has one of the smallest lobby areas I've ever been to. The concession area and souvenirs are within a couple feet of each other and the movement of people during intermission and the show ending is pretty much a cattle drive. Don't expect to be able to use the restroom... More

Was able to attend the last show with the original cast. EXCELLENT show, but you already know that by now. We were in the center Rear Mezzanine, row F, the VERY last row. You could see all of the action from that view, but just not see facial expressions on the players. Still, very glad to be in the room... More

I had bought tickets to see Hamilton back in October and thankfully got to see the original cast before they left. This show definitely lives up to every second of the hype and more. Lin is a genius and every member of the cast is absolutely incredible. The theater is small but the crowd's reaction to everything makes up for... More

A great atmosphere to see any Broadway show. The architecture and detail inside the building is beautiful. Small venue so there are no really bad seats. Definitely worth a visit!

"I want to be in the room where it happens, the room where it happens, the room where it happens!" And I was able to be there today with my daughter and loved it! I know tickets are crazy expensive but I highly recommend that you " beg, steal, borrow, or barter" if that's what it takes for you to... More

Lovely theater overall, but bathrooms are not plentiful and hard to get to. Saw Hamilton here from front row (yes, we won the lottery tickets and it was AMAZING!) And the view was actually pretty good being despite being SO close. Seats were comfortable thought and the front row actually had better leg room then other Orchestra seats.

This Theater is showing the amazing Broadway show Hamilton. If you can go - go! It is all hyped up and it is BETTER than the HYPE! The theater is perfect and the show will blow your mind. It is blowing us all away!

I want to make it clear that this is a review of the theater, not the show, which was Hamilton, and wonderful! The seats are TINY and so close that your knees are in the back of the person in front of you if you are over 5'6" tall. Also, the only bathrooms are in the basement, so if you... More

Fabulous "old" theatre in good condition. Yes, the seats are "smaller" and tightly packed in, but the acoustics were wonderful and the intimacy complemented this spectacular musical.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
