Took my cousin to see Wicked for her 30th birthday as part of our travels around the East Coast. Beautifully kept Theatre with easy access to all levels and clean and tidy toilets. This was a great experience and would happily go again - best night in New York!

The Gershwin is a GEM. It is gorgeous inside and set up to amaze. It's easy to find your seat with the overly helpful staff. The bars and concessions are fantastic and well staffed so there are not huge lines. The stairways and escalators make it easy to get around. There is not a bad seat in the house. We... More

The production of Wicked is definitely a 5-star production, and we loved it! That being said, the staggering of the seating is not condusive to unobtrusive views of the stage. We purchased Orchestra/Front Mezzanine tickets ($129 per person) online two months prior to the performance, because we wanted exceptional seating. Two of the four in our party struggled to view...

We went to the Gershwin last night to see Wicked. Our first time at this theater and our first play. The theater is awesome and the play was really cool. Don't miss the chance to go if you can.

I can't even begin to say how amazing this show is! We enjoyed it so much. The theater is beautiful. We had plenty of leg room. View from our seats was fantastic. I promise there really isn't a bad seat in there. Unfortunately, the first usher that greeted us coming into the theater was grouchy! The line for the ladies... More

The theatre was great. We loved everything about it. Decorations all around were fun and in the spirit of the show. The performance was fantastic.

Wicked was wicked! We all loved the show. Kara Lindsay (Glinda) brought comic relief in a way I did not expect. The cast, costumes, choreography, orchestra, lighting - it all was spectacular! I must see. We sat in the center third row mezzanine, which was perfect view; up high so we could see everything & not strain our necks from... 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.
