It's a smaller theater but nice because very sets is good. The seats themselves are very small that's the only complaint. Staff was friendly and helpful and the acoustics for our concert were great!

The Beacon Theater is one of the best places to see a show in NYC. I love the beautiful ornamental details and decorative pieces. I had the pleasure of seeing Raul Malo recently and he rocked the house with the Mavericks.
