You don't need to know the story or have read the books to enjoy the show. Lively musical with a great cast. The Lortel theatre is always a great place to see a show. Sat in the third row and it was great to see...More

Wonderful off-Broadway house. We have seen many wonderful shows. Its an old fashioned - comfortably worn-in house. The restroom facilities up the stairs are very good for an off-broaday venue. They do not sell bottled water (or anything) so we try to remember to bring...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
