This theater is beautiful. It's large but not overwhelming. They also have plenty of staff on hand to help you find anything you need to.

We were on the mezzanine floor row aa, great view, seats not really comfortable, looking around the theatre it seems you would get a great view from any seat. Prices are expensive but you are in New York. Easy access to the stalls and 2...More

My first show, we saw Aladdin (I would highly recommend it). The theatre was felt very old and authentic. It's design was really nice. The seats were very padded but not the best. Viewing, I couldn't see any obstruction anywhere. I would recommend this theatre.

A nice venue, The theater is in decent shape, though the seats were a little on the stiff side. Good acoustics and decent staff.

Saw Aladdin here and was blown away by this theater. So beautifully done - the perfect Broadway theater. We sat in the center row P and had a great view.

This is an old theater. Entry to the show was haphazard at best. Everyone was shoulder to shoulder trying to enter. The seats were very comfortable in comparison to some others I've been in. But really, the show itself is what counts. The acoustics and...More

This is without a doubt the best theatre ever. It was so nicely air conditioned as the number of people can make these gatherings unbelievably stuffy. Show was amazing.

Have seen many musicals at theatres, but this one was truly amazing. Aladdin is great fun for children and adults. Although i originally thought tickets were expensive at £109 I would gladly pay this again. The seats were very good in the Orchestra section, drinks...More

Is there a general dress code for the evening show? I'm thinking business casual?

Anything is fine. I have seen shorts to jackets. It is all what you like. I tend to dress better because I like an evening at the theater, but there is no actual code.

I see some reviews stating the seats can be uncomfortable for taller people since it is an older theater. My husband is 6'6" I don't want him to be miserable. I am willing to pay more for his comfort. Are there any seats that may offer more leg room? For the show we are looking at Mezzanine row AA is available. Thanks!

The seats were tight and the space was small, my partner is 6 ft and it was a tight squeeze so it maybe worth contacting the theatre to try and get a more spacious seating area :)
Hello, Trying to decide if better to get center tickets row MM and further on Mezzanine level or center row G in the balcony. Please share your experiences. There are 4 of us and tickets are so expensive I'm trying to get something decent for the least amount of money.
