One of the Hidden Gems
Feb 2020
The York Theatre literally works out of a church basement with a tiny budget. But with endless creative energy and passion they keep on making memorable and exciting theatre. They bring back musicals from th golden age and let you hear them fresh as today.

Great Shows and great organization!
Sep 2019
The shows are well done and the actors are very talented! I have seen a number of really well done shows and even made a donation to help support the the group.
There is something for every taste-

Customer Service Disappointment
Dec 2018
I have been to this theater several times and have introduced several family members and friends to this theater. Recently I contacted their Sales/Customer Service Department about an issue. The person in charge of the ticket sales/customer service (Bobby) was rude, inaccurate in his response and was not at all willing to try to work the issue out with me. As a matter of fact, he responded quite rude in the email he sent me. I will not be attending any more shows at this theater and can only hope that perhaps they will treat their customers kinder in the future. I have seen hundreds of shows on and off Broadway over the years and have never experienced this kind of rudeness. The York theater does not seem to care very much about customer satisfaction. I will no longer be able to recommend thjos theater to others after this experience.

Christmas in Hell - A Different Kind of Christmas Story
Dec 2018 • Couples
This delightful musical involves a father's love for his son, and what it takes to bring his son back from the clutches of the devil. Entertaining, featuring a talented cast with superb singing voices, good acting, quirky, but ultimately a sweet story. If you think that the only great musicals are those on Broadway with huge casts, think again.

Great Off Broadway Show
Oct 2018 • Couples
Desperate Measures was witty and well done. We purchased tickets same day and were not disappointed. It was laugh out loud funny, tongue and cheek humour. The stage and props are minimal and the cast does a great job playing off them. Definitely a lovely evening out with friends.

Desperate Measures measured up
Nov 2017 • Family
We went to NYC for a last minute weekend and wanted to see a musical. The Times Square Tix staff mentioned how much they laughed at the musical Desperate Measures. Needing some lighthearted comedy we acted on the suggestion and enjoyed a fun, well produced show with some great talent. We saw the afternoon performance Saturday 11/11/17 with half of the understudies and we were truly impressed with their talent.

Desperate Measures - desperate for Broadway!!
Nov 2017 • Couples
Desperate Measures is a TERRIFIC MUSICAL, clearly one of the best we've ever seen (tops quite a few Broadway shows): outstanding singers and actors, great songs, witty lyrics, very entertaining, amazing play: We'll definitely watch again with friends!! The York Theatre Company is truly outstanding bringing soooo many excellent shows to New York. Add to that a mixture of Bohemian and family-like ambiente and you end up with spectacular shows, great entertainment and simply a feel-good night out long to be remembered!!

Good Off-Broadway Fare
Sep 2017 • Family
Found the East Side in Midtown, the York offers high quality musical theatre performances of lesser known pieces. If, however, you are larger than the average bear, don't expect to sit comfortably.

Me and Ella is a Must See
Jul 2017 • Couples
The spectacularly talented Andrea Frierson interweaves her personal story with songs for which Ella Fitzgerald was famous. An engaging script in hand performance, Me and Ella runs only through July 23rd. If you're looking for something special to do in NYC, this is it. The theater is small, you'll have good visibility anywhere you sit.

Mark Felt & York Theatre Company: 2 Superstars
Jan 2017 • Friends
What a MUSICAL TREAT for POLITICS BUFFS!! We went to see this musical for the 3rd time because we loved it soooo much that we wanted a close friend of ours, who loves everything about history and politics, to see it. We all agree that the cast is extremely talented, singing and dancing soooo well. And, that they clearly are good actors and interested in all the facts about Mark Felt and the Watergate scandal they present. Furthermore, we think that Joshua Rosenblum, the author, composer and writer of the lyrics of this musical did an amazing job gathering all the information and presenting them in such a catchy musical with soooo many little known facts about the man Mark Felt, who's name surely deserves to be more familiar to people than it seems to be these days. Finally, I would like to mention the 1st class treatment we received from the York Theatre Company: I should mention that our politics-loving friend was unlucky enough last year to have a stroke and that he is in a wheelchair ever since. And, that we had complimentary tickets. I went to the theatre the night before the show asking the Producing Associate, Amber Wallace, what we can do about this, namely that we had complementary tickets but on the other hand needed some special seating arrangements for our friend in the wheelchair. She solved it all for us and we had wonderful seats in the first row, which we all will never forget: Thank you soooo very much!! All 3 of us will definitely come back to the York Theatre Company, and then with non-complimentary tickets. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS for this creative & lovable Theatre Company and Best of Luck to Joshua Rosenblum to establish his very well deserving musical on Broadway and/or in Washington!!
