Came here last night for the Mariah Carey show and it was fantastic. We sat UBALC2 Row J Seat 12 &14. I was worried about the view because our ticket said obstructions but honestly it worked out great. We sat right above where the opening was to exit and it provided a table for our drinks. The show was suppose... More

Yes, sit for over an hour until the diva decides to show up. The show was very good, with a terrific band, many child dancers and singers. I thought she was drowned out quite a bit, and had some trouble hitting high notes. I recommend it, but be prepared also to stand the whole night if you have an orchestra... More

Good seating, nice decor. Sound quality was excellent. The show was Straight, No Chaser, a Cappella group. This is one group that I would see again. Very entertaining.

This is an architectural wonder. It's what you might see in Europe-not the US. The seats were comfortable and entry and exit was smooth. Mariah was over an hour late and the theater warned us to be there at least 30 minutes early for security. Security took exactly 7 seconds per person. I would say two things. If you have... More

This is a pretty great theatre. The setting feels like you in a theatre in Athens or Rome based on the decor. The seats are large and comfortable with ample leg room. We saw Mariah Carey perform here and loved it. The Beacon Theatre is pretty excellent. We would absolutely come back again.

As background, I have literally never been to see a "celebrity" before - and I'm almost 60 - so I didn't know what to expect. My daughter, who is in a wheelchair and unable to sit or stand on her own, wanted to see Mariah Carey for her birthday/Christmas. An agent on the phone helped me with getting aisle tickets,... More

Seeing Mariah Carey perform her "All I Want for Christmas is You" concert felt like an amazing opportunity to be surrounded by music appreciators in a Broadway-like setting, while not feeling overwhelmed as you might in a full Broadway theater. Though some patience was required while exiting from the upper balcony all the way to the front door, the whole... More

Went with my brother to see Chris D'Elia do stand-up here. It was a lot of fun, the theatre was very nice, and we got to get a picture with him afterwards!! He left the theatre through the side door. If you're seeing a performer here try waiting around the side to catch them after the show!

Wonderful acoustics in this gorgeous, intimate, clean theatre. We saw Tedeschi Trucks Band in October of this year and were blown away! Why haven't we come up to NY for more shows? I know that TTB can sounds great anywhere but WOW! Our seats were all the way up, last row of the the last section and we saw everything,... More

It's the Beacon! Saw Fab Faux. Clean theatre. Great location near the subway. Tons of restaurants nearby on Amsterdam. One word of "heads up" ... at 6:30 all the restaurants are full. Make reservations! But the theatre has super sounds. Good cocktail selection and all the seats have nice sight lines. Our third trip to the Beacon and we will... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
