Owner description: Hovering dramatically over Empire State Plaza, The Egg is a world-class performing arts complex.

The Egg offers an unique venue for entertainment. The building is shaped like, well, half an egg. The two halls are more than comfortable - lots of legroom for tall folks, and feels very intimate regardless of where you're sitting. We've driven 8-hour round-trip for three shows now, Richard Thompson, Paul Brady, and The Waterboys, and will gladly head that way for the next exceptional artist that we can't catch in our little state to the north.

Recent convention type event was held here. There were lighting issues,( too bright, too shadowy), sound issues... set up is just weirdly spaced and nonsensical, with ugly carpet and freezing cold rooms. Plus the lack of working elevators on an event night??Um. fail.

it's a great venue, all seats are good. If you see a show you are interested in, go!

(They need some more good shows though.)
