This was a fantastic experience. The show itself was top notch with amazing props and cast. Our whole family (teen agers and pre-teen) truly enjoyed this show. We sat up in the mezzanine area and the only downside was the space between the rows, not much room to stretch out if your a tall person. This is very close to... More

This theatre is beautiful! Leg room is lacking but the show is practically perfect. Would highly recommend seeing Mary Poppins, no matter how old you are you will be delighted!

Mary Poppins is a great show for all ages; especially for families with younger children who want to "try" a Broadway show and feel that everyone gets their moneys worth. The tap dancing is extraordinary!

There were 4 of us in the group (all over 40), we managed to get tickets for this show on the broadway.com website for 40% saving; we were not sure what to expect - stunning. The theatre, the set, the cast and show were all amazing. We were only in NYC for 5 nights and had a busy schedule so... More

Gosh.. I wish I had a better description for what I witnessed.. The theater is just stunning to look at. and The cast and crew of the show were phenomenal. I may be biased because it was my favorite childhood movie... but the entire theater was clapping to the songs, laughing... singing along.. It was a wonderful experience.

The show is outstading in every respect. The stage props and special effects are probably more impressive than Lion King and that was excellent. The cast was impressive in every respect. This is a fun, professional performance.

We saw Mary Poppins in this venue. The theatre is 109 years old and is Art Deco. One of the most beautiful venues i have ever seen. The performance was wonderful. The theatre is not too big, so it feels intimate.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
