Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Absolutely amazing! The talent is unbelievable, and the storytelling is genius! The band, the dancers, and the actor playing Michael were just incredible. This show is amazing.

    A spectacle you have to visit. Over the top as expecred. Just watching people is fun enough. A few avoidable touristtraps.
    Go visist a Broadway show. Its worthwhile.

    One of my favorite parks in New York. You can find an activity every weekend from 7 to 9 pm on Friday and Saturday. You can have a great time with the Bank of America's organization. Has a picnic area.

    We had a couple of hours to spare on our last day in NYC and one attraction left on our Explorer Pass to headed off to Madame Tussauds. Itreally is prettyv cheesy, but there has been some effort put into grouping the celebrities and present them thematically. There is also a 10 minute Marvel Universe 4D movie which is entertaining enough.

    Theater's great and Wicked is amazing! I love the story anyhow, and the performances didn't disappoint. Made me wish I was in NYC longer so I could see more Broadway shows! If you're thinking about going, do it!

    Celebrated a family member's birthday by taking the family to see Aladdin. We have two 6-year-olds with us. They sat through the entire performance and both young and old enjoyed it. Seats were far right of orchestra, which we were a little apprehensive about, but was able to see the stage clearly. Would recommend grabbing a booster seat for the little ones.

    We went to Neil Simon Theater to see MJ the musical. It is a beautiful theater. The show exceeded expectations. The staff is friendly and helpful. They do a great job, moving a lot of people in and out of the theater.

    Amazing uplifting experience. I went having always wanted to visit since reading the cross and switch blade book. The worship was outstanding. It felt like being at a concert however the leader did a great job at trying to encourage congregation to take part. Preaching was powerful as well. Will most definitely return if I am so blessed to come back to NYC

    Went to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Enjoyed the play as well as the theatre. Leg room is tight, really tight, especially when you are 6'5"...pity the people behind me...sorry!!! Entrance was a bit confusing....we waiting in line outside (pouring rain but luckily there was a covering!!!) Once inside we waited close to a half hour before we were let in...the lobby got pretty crowded. They had QR Codes on the back of the seats and you could order food or drinks to be brought to you...pretty cool. Good views of the stage, sound was adequate. Personnel weren't all that friendly, but hey, we are here for the play. All in all, a nice venue to watch a Broadway Play.

    Beautiful theatre and brilliant show. The staff on the door were very pleasant and the first bar person that served us was courteous. Unfortunately when we went to the bar at the interval the second bar person that served us appeared to be very stressed. When i went to pay for my drink he kept insisting that it had to be a card payment. I appreciate that they may prefer card payments but as tourists we only had cash. After finally accepting that I could only pay by cash he then proceeded to launch the packet of peanuts that I had ordered in my direction.

    I have given the theatre four stars due to the rest of the experience however the rudeness of this one staff member has stopped me from giving five stars.

    Lion king was indescribable. Broadway is an absolute must if you visit New York City. This theatre was lovely and staff were great.

    We saw Hamilton at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. The show was fantastic! I cannot wait to go back and see another Broadway show. We had seats in the area of G 17- through 23 and the view was fine for us. The seating is tight.. just small seats and not a lot of legroom. So if you’re a tall person, you may want to get an aisle seat.
