“These people are fabulous!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2010

We had tickets for a Friday night and showed up Saturday - how dumb were we???
From the ticket agent to the manager, they worked furiously to accommodate us and we started in temporary seats, then got moved to no shows in the 8th row center stage! We can't say enough about the ticket agent, helping us poor Pacific Northwest people that can't read our show dates, and the manager, I wish we got her name, who would only say - you're welcome - tell everyone you know that New Yorkers are nice - we already knew that but what a great thing to do for us. Thanks and love you New York, the whole experience was grand. Al and Deb - New Westminster, BC, Canada.

“A wonderful, challenging experience of human suffering and triumph”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2009

We were not certain what to do on the evening of June 26th when we begin to peruse the theater section of a magazine. We were unsuccessful in purchasing tickets for such lionized plays as The Lion King and Wicked. We were beginning to despair of having a decent evening's entertainment when we read a review of Irina's Vow playing at the Walter Kerr Theatre. We made our way to the theatre, purchased our tickets and were thoroughly moved and challenged by a play that evinces the best in human drama with suffering, pathos and ultimately triumph of the human spirit .The performers were convincing and authentic, the message profound and the audience appeared to be very stirred. I also will add that the staff was helpful when we wanted to change our tickets for better seating at the last moment. We also noticed that the theatre has had many recent plays of quality such as Moon for the Misbegotten. The blockbuster shows such as Lion King and Wicked have their place but it is significant and gratifying that there are plays that the message is at least as important as the entertainment value.
