Friends of ours got us tickets to a preview performance of the hilarious new musical, Gettin’ The Band Back Together at the Belasco. The show was uproariously funny from start to finish. The theater is beautiful, albeit in need of at least two notable upgrades....More

One of the nicer theatres I’ve attended on Broadway! My seat was comfy and not on top of the other patrons. We attended previews for Gettin’ the Band Back Together and really enjoyed the sound and visuals. Great theatre experience. Beautiful ceiling!

This is one of the great early New York theaters. Just sitting in this environment calls up days gone by and a lifestyle that is all but disappeared

We visited the Belasco Theater to see Farinelli and the King starring Mark Rylance, which was fabulous. This review is not about that however. The “greeters”, and I use that term loosely, were highly unpleasant and snippy. Now, I understand that they are dealing with...More

The only show I wanted to see during our last visit to NYC was “Farinelli and the King” with Mark Rylance. My husband decided against it, so I bought a good ticket for myself on the day of the performance and went to see it...More

Farinelli and the King was an intriguing show. Witty dialogue sometimes hard to hear. Side seats had obstructed view of the stage. Interesting that the title character had to be protrayed by an actor and singer.

A stunning production brought to us from London. Mark Rylance heads a superb cast, the countertenor is spectacular. Stop reading and get tickets now - the final performance is March 25th.

We love ‘Farinelli and the King’, in large part because Mark Rylance is one of our favourite actors. We have now seen him in four different productions on Broadway, and this may well have been his best performance (though his Olivia in ‘Twelfth Night’ a...More
