“Grand Venue”
Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

What can you possibly say about a venerable old music theatre such as this? How about great acoustics, cool bar all the way up and access by the subway? How about this- if you are "on deck" at 5:40 you can catch the beginning of night only parking right in front. You're welcome!!!

“Cool theatre!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Love the Harvey Theatre @ BAM! Such a cool space. Great performance of "A Doll's House" too. We saw "Cherry Orchard" here many years ago and loved it. Will be back again, I'm sure.

“A great show.”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

We went to see "A Doll's House", which had come from England and got terrific reviews. Unfortunately, the only seats available were in the "Gallery" and we walked up 70 steps before we found out there is an elevator. The show was wonderful, but the seats in the gallery are extremely uncomfortable. If you can afford it, sit in the orchestra. Otherwise, it was a very nice experience.
