Perfect Venue

I love this small and intimate theater. The stage being in the center of most of the seats makes for a special theater experience. See a show here, you will be glad you did.

My husband and I have seen Aladdin, Wicked, and Chicago on Broadway. And this Circle in the Square Theater was the BEST theater we've ever sat in. We've never been in an intimate theater before, and we loved it. My husband is very tall. We love seeing shows, but he is ALWAYS uncomfortably squished in theater seats. This theater had... More

I saw the 2016 Tony winner, Fun Home at this theater and was blown away at the experience. Since the stage is circular, most seats are ideal. My seating was 4th row from the stage and I definitely felt the energy and emotions from the cast. I recommend seeing any play at Circle In The Square to see a play,... More

A great venue musical theatre. Seats amazing which are enclosed within the stage. You feel the action and see the whole stage. You experience from every angle. Seats are very close to each other in exchange for being close to the stage. The musical act was great, creating NYC stories that New Yorkers can relate to and to create a... More

We were looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon. Wow! In Transit was absolutely fantastic. The quality of the cast was terrific and the story line about life in NYC was so at realistic. We laughed and laughed for the full 90 minutes. No intermission was quite cool! Plenty of momentum throughout the play. We met Nicholas Ward... More

Smaller theater which creates a wonderful, intimate setting for a show. We saw In Transit here. It was phenomenal! It's an all a capella show with the only instruments being the actors voices and one actor that beat boxes. The storyline is great with a very talented cast. Would see this show again if I could. Everyone had amazing voices!

First A Cappella Production on Broadway! It was amazing. You understand the daily struggles of the characters and just wanted to hug them for sorrow or achievements. Amazing little theater, not a bad seat in the place.

We were looking for a show to see while our college aged kids were home for the holidays, and a friend recommended "In Transit." We are so glad she did! It was amazing!! Anyone who has ever ridden the MTA will relate to so many of the "everyday" things that you only experience on the subway in New York City.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
