It's a bit of a tight squeeze in this theatre, but there really aren't any bad seats. Acoustics are very good. But you may want a small pair of binoculars if you're in the last few balcony rows. Restrooms are on lower level only so bear that in mind & give yourself plenty of time. If you want a souvenir... More

I saw Hamilton here yesterday for the 3pm Sunday Matinee. It is worth it people. The actors are incredible and the whole experience is a memory you'll have forever. I had great seats in the center Orchestra. The seats are not spacious as other reviewers have mentioned but I was not uncomfortable. I'm 5'9'' and my legs had about 1/2... More

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.

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.
