The only seats available were on the outer aisle in row M and these should have afforded a good view of the stage; the show was Cats. Unfortunately the stage managers set up the lighting tower and the speaker towers on stage and this prevented...More

I LOVE Broadway and Theater, but am sad to say I'm done spending money for absolutely anything at this venue. After a year with season tickets (because of a great Broadway line-up), then a few more single purchases, I have concluded that the poor acoustics...More
