Third time here. Every seat is satisfactory. Theater is small and cozy, acoustics were good both prior visits. Not hard to get tickets a few weeks in advance. Price is fair and inexpensive compared to NYC.

We took my 92 year old mother to see Jesus Christ superstar. The play was great, professional and the talent was amazing. This was as good as anything we have seen in new york.
