Very sensitive show with an incredible message. Would watch this a million times. The venue is not as big as other Broadway theaters, but beautiful and the staff is great. Access was fast, bathrooms were clean, seats are comfortable. Thank you, Jodie Comer and Susie Miller for bringing this to Broadway.

I bought a low price seat in the very back row and proceeded to get headphones. I walked up to the very back row and was very comfortable. Hangman had heavy English access even with the headphones it was difficult to understand. By the second act the headphones started beeping. I could not hear the play but because I was so far up and the fact that I’m 67 years old I have size 17 shoes I did not make it down in the dark to tell them that the hearing headphones did not work. The entire second act was a complete waist I have no idea what went on. I was so disappointed. It was the sex show that I’ve seen in a week and I have to say the worst experience I’ve had on Broadway in a long time. As a staircase been lit enough I could’ve walked out and missed a lot of the play to get a new set of hearing devices. I would’ve bothered everybody because I have to hold onto the rail because my feet are so big. I will never go see another playbat the Golden theater

Beautiful theater! Absolutely phenomenal and must see play “Thoughts of a Colored Man”! My view was great and the sound was awesome. My only complaint is the late seating, some patrons were extremely late and interrupted important scenes in the play. Seating was also very tight and uncomfortable.

Beautiful theater. Great site lines. Literally a block from my hotel. Wanted to see "Slave Play" before it closes later this month. No elevator to the lower level bathrooms. Plentiful restaurants nearby to catch a meal before or after the show.

Went to this play on Friday, October 12, 2019. It is TRASH !
We left after the first fifteen minutes which were filled with three different pornographic scenes. We did not expect such TRASH.
It was a waste of our valuable time and money. Put a damper on our vacation.

Saw The Waverly Gallery which was excellent. Re the theater itself: Poor acoustics, had to strain to hear dialogue. Small front foyer, come off street, small foyer and into seating area. Theater wants you there in advance, we arrived accordingly and then they take their time to open the doors while we all stood in the rain in line.

Got super lucky on my bday in NYC. Walk up rush ticket $40 front row for the Waverly Gallery. Cast was amazing. Elaine May blew me away! Wonderful story of family trying to deal with Alzheimer's. Box office guy very friendly and helpful. Small theater - not a bad seat in the house. Thoroughly enjoyed this play.

Great cast. Great directing. Script with power and something to think about at the end. But the theater--yikes! It's a grand old venue indeed. Unfortunately, seating is tight and cramped. If I had the bucks I'd donate to having the seats remapped and room expanded for the modern playgoer. But I would also say: suck it in, practice some flexibility moves for your long, long legs, bring padding for the knees--and go see The Waverly Gallery!

Whether currently or in the future most of us will be touched by the ravaging disease that is dementia. The Waverly Gallery, a play currently showing in the Golden Theatre, allows us to share the experiences of a family dealing with this. You take a peek into the life of a prominent NYC family as they deal with the decline of the matriarch of the family that has dementia. The topic of the play is very heavy. The writing was excellent and thought provoking! I'm a musical theater geek but this play was a wonderful experience. I love the Golden Theatre! It was small but a wealth of good seats and comfort!!
