Yesterday we saw An Act Of God at this 103 year old medium sized theater. We loved the show and laughed throughout Sean Hayes' performance, but the theater could use some help. We were seated in the last row of the mezzanine and my seat was on about a 30 degree angle. Thankfully, the theater was not full and the... More

This is where "An Act of GOD" is playing now, and why we were there. The seating was comfortable, standard theater seating. The play was a hoot and the dramatic staging was flawless. There is a desk off the lobby, to your right as you exit the seating, that serves as its "gift shop" selling T-shirts, key rings and one... More

We went into the city on a Saturday to see Sean Hayes in the "An Act of God". Basically, a one man show supported by two "angels". The show was both entertaining and funny. The theatre is smallish but the seats are comfortable enough.

We saw An Act Of God at Booth Theatre. It is a fabulously funny monologue with Sean Hays playing God. Two angels comprise the supporting cast. The premise is God creating a new version of The Ten Commandments. It is short, about 1 1/2 hours. We laughed the entire time, enjoyed it immensely. The theatre is very nice and well... More

We went to see Act of God in June. I had paid good tickets and was really looking forward to the show, which was great. But we bought a large red wine, a beer and a bottle of water and were charged $51 which is ridiculous even in Manhattan! Just beware as prices are not displayed.

My friend and I went to see an Act of God with Sean Hayes. The show was so funny and irreverent that it's a must see. When my friend and I went to go to our seats in the mezzanine, the usher saw our size, which I will state usually will not fit in a normal theater seat comfortably, she... More

We saw Act of God with Sean Hayes, which is an entertaining one man show. This theatre was perfect for that type event. It's a relatively small historical theatre that debuted in 1913. I don't think there would be any bad seats. We sat orchestra left and could see everything quite clearly and felt comfortably close to the stage. Acoustics... More

I really wanted to watch this play and was all set for the wait at the tkts booth but thought I should try the rush tickets. Surprisingly they still had amazing seats for $42 at 1.30pm on Monday. It is the best one-man show I have seen. The script is both clever and entertaining. Sean Hayes didn't disappoint!

The Booth Theater is part of the Schubert group of theaters. It is an old, small theater. Perfect for seeing Act Of God. We sat in the orchestra which is small and had comfortable seats with good leg room.

Nice, small and intimate theater. No bad seating. This play was basically a one man show; however there is one other character that chimes in more towards the end. This play only runs 65 minutes with no intermission. It was exciting to see Whitaker making his stage play debut.

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.
