Loved the Theater, Loved the Show

The theatre was great. We loved everything about it. Decorations all around were fun and in the spirit of the show. The performance was fantastic.

Wicked was wicked! We all loved the show. Kara Lindsay (Glinda) brought comic relief in a way I did not expect. The cast, costumes, choreography, orchestra, lighting - it all was spectacular! I must see. We sat in the center third row mezzanine, which was perfect view; up high so we could see everything & not strain our necks from... More

We went to this theater to watch Wicked. The theater is very beautiful and the show was very nice and entertaining. We enjoyed our stay in the theater, the show, the seats and everything. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The lobby was beautiful with lots of pictures and the restrooms were clean.

Historic theater, long-running production, a painless, glamorous night on Broadway in the middle of Spring. Not a bad seat in the house. Loved being a part of it and would love to go back.

I don't think there is a "bad" seat in the house. Loved the show, the crowd control was well done. The bartender was great. I agree with the other reviewer about seating latecomers. I too was very miffed that although the show started a few minutes late, people were still being seated more than half an hour after it started,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
