Be prepared for stairs, seating so packed in you can't move your legs once you sit down, and don't even think about using the restroom. I would have sat in mud in a gutter to see Hamilton, so I didn't notice how uncomfortable I was until I tried to walk down the stairs to leave.

Seriously? $1200 for fair seats and the show has every PC overtone one can imagine. We were there when the VP Elect Mike Pence showed up and was booed by the clan of "we know betters". Followed up by a dressing down by the cast at the end was just too much. We didn't come to a play so we... More

Like so many, I purchased an expensive seat during a short trip to New York, it didn't though guarantee a good seat / position. Seated way up the top towards the rear, had a small and uncomfortable seat and was never able to get into the spirit of the show. An older style theatre which could be ok but need... More

I have just torn up our 6 expensive tickets to see the Broadway Show "Hamilton" This is not a political statement, it is a "courtesy expression" If I were invited to your "home"(Richard Rogers Theatre) I would never expect to be presented with harsh or offensive words. The Theatre should access it's tenants as I would access the actions of... More

Everything from location to picking up tickets, to line up, to seating, to collectible cup, to stage door meet and greet.... this was one of the most memorable nights of my life! Let's take out the fact that we saw HAMILTON... the theater itself and staff were superb. I arrived early to pic up my tickets and the staff was... More

This is a review of Rogers Theatre. Nice update but seats are tight and must stress this to long legged patrons. Restroom in basement only, so count 66 steps to upper balcony for those impaired. But Theatre is a must see in NYC for the condition and age. If you do have some handicaps, I would check to see what... More

Hamilton is absolutely worth the outrageous amount of money you will spend to see it. Not a bad seat in the house. We were in orchestra row Q side and had a commanding view of the stage. Stellar performance

An unbelievable, creative delivery of a mostly untold story of history. What a great way to learn a bit of history through a spectacular performance. Highly recommended if you can get seats at an affordable price.

Hamilton is a must-see show. Tickets will be available in time. The Richard Rogers Theater is a legendary location and Hamilton has become a Broadway legend. It is unfortunate the space outside the auditorium is so small. (If you want to buy souvenirs, be in line around 40-50 minutes early, and head straight for a souvenir salesperson first.) Of the...

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.
