We saw Chris Tomlin at this venue. Beautiful venue with great seating. The reason for not being 5 stars was how management handles seating arrangements once you first enter the facility. Everyone had to stand in the common areas, cluttering the stairways, which we felt...More

We have been going to concerts here since the 70's. The theater and the neighborhood have changed for the better over the years. The renovation about 9 years ago made it that much better. The sound is excellent and the staff is very helpful. There...More

I visited the beacon theater a couple of months ago while seeing Seinfeld and found it to be a great place. However the seating arrangement is not ideal. When booking tickets, they don't tell you the exact seat you booked; rather you get a range...More

Came primarily to see Cyndi Lauper, Dr John and Jackson Browne in the Christmas benefit concert. Outstanding show with great performances. The 3 hours was non-stop and went very quickly. It's great to see an old time theatre restored in the heart of NYC.

Saw Nick Offerman here in November 2017. The Beacon is one of those theatres which is large enough for a good crowd, but still feels intimate. It's beautiful, and ornate, and grand. The seats are pretty comfortable, and it's relatively easy to get in and...More

The Beacon Theatre is a masterpiece in NYC! A must when considering going to a show here. The theater it self is not too big, so almost all seats here are truly a good seat. It’s so intimate, sound is beyond great, super elegant and...More

We went to hear Bob Dylan and Mavis Staples as his intro act; totally memorable. Acoustics are out of this world, totally world class. We sat on the main floor about halfway back in the Orch2 section, fine view and great sound. Would recommend getting...More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

You can't bring in your own drinks. The reason? The profits made from RIDICULOUS prices... I paid $10 for 2 Diet Cokes! There is a bar at the theater.

I've never seen him in person and probably would never but comedy shows are not my thing. I would suggest calling the theater and see if they can help you. I personally would not take my children to see him.
