What a wonderful show "The Great Comet" It was just beyond my expectations. Highly recommend! The theater itself does have one downfall, in that it needs more bathrooms. Only one on the afternoon we were there so lines were bad. Overall a great experience and...More

A "clean" show (you will not be embarrassed by language), with non-stop singing and dancing. Super high energy. If you have the opportunity to buy tickets to sit on stage, take advantage of it. A highly interactive show, stage seating puts you right in the...More

Hi! Going to see Great Comet this fall...anyone know what the balcony view is like in the Imperial? .I know the show has unusual seating in the orchestra area and am not sure if farther back in the balcony would be better or closer to the front? (unfortunately financially orch/mezz tix are kind of out of the running). Anyone ever sat in the balcony?

There will be a platform in the mezzanine for the actors to use which will bring the action up to you! You should check out the seating chart on Telecharge.

I want to send a gift delivery for one of the actors and am not sure where I should tell them to deliver it. Is there a specific door that accepts deliveries and is there a contact number for the delivery person?
