We were at the Walter Kerr to see the absolutely stunning performance by Bruce Springsteen which was worth every penny and more of the ticket costs. As always Bruce gave everything of himself and must have been totally shattered at the end The Walter Kerr...More

A lovely old theater. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. A perfect location to see a show. If you get an opportunity to see the Springsteen show, all I can say is GO!

Saw Springsteen on Broadway here and was mesmerized by the performance, obviously. But the theater makes it all possible. Intimate, comfortable and amazing acoustics. The crew that works there is friendly, professional and they keep things moving (lines aren't long and security flows quickly). Awesome...More

Went for Bruce. Yes, the seats are waaay to close together. But everything else is amazing - the space has phenomenal acoustics and offers everyone an intimate experience.

Very small, intimate theatre, I doubt there’s a bad seat in the place. We were in the mezzanine, and felt like we could practically touch him. Beautiful old theatre.
