Went to see the living legend Diana Ross. The theater was clean, cozy and staff was polite. We sat orchestra right, but I don't think there's a bad view anywhere you sit due to the size of the theater. I would definitely go again.

By chance we have noticed advertisement and got the tickets. The hall is not too big but comfortable for cozy concerts.

We were surprised to find this richly decorated moorish style building among the usual anonymous W 55th streets buildings. It is newly restored and the terra cotta tiles look colorful. The stylish interior is also worth a visit.
