The Schoenfeld is good because it is not very big. There are no truly bad seats, though seats on the sides don't have ideal acoustics. It's easy to get in and out, and the theatre has a classic ambience. There was nothing worth criticizing here!

The events of 9/11 still strike a raw nerve within the national psyche. The books, movies, and television programs that have been rolled out over the past 16 years have been graphic and numbing. Their blunt, straightforward portrayal of that morning have been, for the...More
