    Amazing show, theatre itself has some issues
    Hamilton was brilliant, the cast was fantastic and from any seat in the house I think you would get a great view, quite an intimate theatre. The seats are small, to be expected at a theatre this old! We opted for aisle seats for some extra comfort/legroom. Issues in my opinion - drinks are vastly overpriced. I had a “Hamiltini” which was vodka, apple and some lemonade in a short reuseable cup and it was $18 + tax and tip! I didn’t see any “free” water and only bottled for $9 + tax and tip. As others note, the que for the woman’s bathroom was very long at intermission.

    Not Every Seat is Great
    I paid almost $200 per ticket for four tickets just to try and get seats in the middle of the Orchestra section. We flew into to NYC to see the show. My daughter and I could not see the stage. I felt like I was looking around a human utility pole. I ended up straining my neck, waking up every morning for the past four days with neck pain on my right side. I’ve watched several musicals- Les Mis (twice), Phantom of the Opera (twice), Hairspray, Spring Awakening, Wicked, etc…. I’ve never had to strain to watch a show. It made it hard to follow the story when all you were focused on was trying to get a clear view of the stage. That made it unenjoyable! Also the bathroom situation is a mess. I had people yelling at me to get in line when there really was no line at all. It was a herd of people heading to the restroom. Please find another way to get people to the restroom. It’s not fun to have people yelling at you when you’re trying to find a line that doesn’t exist.

    Hamilton
    While I saw Hamilton here, this is more of a review of the theatre itself. The restroom lines are WILD but the most smoothly directed on Broadway. Just follow the directions of the staff and you’ll get in and out on time. The bar staff is so nice and they will definitely take care of you. The seating is very tight front-to-back in most of the theatre beyond the front orchestra section, so long-legs and knee injuries beware.

    Great play and theatre
    We watched Hamilton yesterday. The theater is very elegant and unique in style. Entrance and exit is a little chaotic when it is full. The play was amazing, the plot, the actors, dancers and the hiphop and rap was definitely new to me but I loved it.

    Toilet situation sucks. Hamilton is great.
    Hamilton was incredible. The toilet situation is a hot mess though. There’s only one set of bathrooms and that’s on the bottom floor. You’ve got 20 minutes to use the bathroom and literally everyone is descending to the bottom floor, it’s chaos. I got up as soon as the intermission started and the queue was already backed up into the stalls. The line just kept getting longer because every time you were near the back, more people from the stalls were feeding in. I just about made it back. A lot of people came in late and missed the opening of act 2. I thought they’d wait for everyone but they didn’t. Bit of a shame.

Like most of the crowds we were in NYC for the Broadway shows. Here for Hamilton on Saturday, December 23, 2023, 7PM show. Trying to get decent priced tickets for this show was nearly impossible. I saw advertising for $99 tickets. HA! That's a lie. People (in reviews here) complain about $400 orchestra seats, that's cheap because I saw orchestra seats prices at $1200. Online there are many ticket brokers for NYC theaters. I bought two tickets for $230 each and they were at the very back at the top. The absolutely lowest price I could find. This is a beautiful old theater, but the seats are super cramped and small. It was so hot on the balcony, I was pouring sweat and had to strip down to my T-shirt. Then during the play a very tall kid seated in front of me, kept leaning forward with his big hairy head blocking 3/4 of the my view of the stage. At intermission, the line for the men's restroom (in the basement) snaked all the way up the stairs to the 2nd level of the theater and back down again. People kept trying to butt in line. This theater is not adequate to show this extremely popular play. My best enjoyment was having conversation with the young lady from Tel Aviv seated next to me. Just as a side note: I saw Hamilton in Chicago 3 years ago and only paid $79 for excellent comfortable seats. Although the show in NYC this time was a top-notch production, it was difficult to enjoy it.

Quality sight lines throughout and the sound was good. The seats are very very small and there is no leg room. Felt like a Spirit Airlines flight for 2:45. Bathrooms are a competition and there is only 1 !

Decent theatre but seemed to be a little tighter seating and leg room than a number of other theaters. Also seemed colder than normal.

Although the show, Hamilton, was amazing, the theatre is a bit to be desired. The seats are very uncomfortable with zero leg room... you cannot even cross your legs, so someone with leg issues beware... also, the intermission was Nightmare. Wall to wall people on the main floor because everyone is heading to the only bathroom (1 male and 1 woman) in the theatre. The line wrapped around so far we were standing in the first floor aisle... and to top it off we missed the first act of the 2nd half. Signage is also lacking
