If you're going to be in NYC and looking to see a Broadway show, this delivers! We went to see Cats and had a very enjoyable time. Not a bad seat in the house. This is a family friendly venue and definitely worth the price.

One of our bucket list items. This is a small theater without a lot of leg room. It has a beautiful chandelier but looks like it could use some up keep. We saw Cats and it was really good.

This is a classic Broadway theater - an intimate setting, which is a perfect venue for a show like Cats. The balconies allow the cast members to stroll up and down the aisles, interacting with the audience. There were several ushers at the ready to...More

Lovely theater! Small with spacious seating. The staff was one of the nicest I've seen in any theater. It made for a great experiance. The show was very nice. I'm glad Cats found a new home.

This is a small theatre, just right for a musical like 'Cats' as the cats come prowling among the audience. If you are sitting in the front orchestra seats, you almost feel you are part of the show.

My wife and I were in the second row, it is eye-level and in fact the front rows are almost "interactive". The cats come down off the stage and interact very closely. Viewing from this vantage point affords a more intimate... More
