Brought my family here to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We didn't have close seats, but I don't think there is a bad seat in this place. Staff was efficient and the bar staff were very friendly!

Very nice Theatre. We went to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and it was superb. Had very central Orchestra seats about 10 rows back from front and view was tremendous. A tip, we got tickets with 50% at the TKTS booth!

I thought it was a fun show. I was entertained the whole time. As for the location, it was good. The seats up top can be a challenge if the wrong size individual ends up in front of you. Generally had a great evening.

They move people in very quickly so five to ten minutes before the show starts should be fine, unless you need to use the woman's bathroom, which will take you forever.

As with Nancy, not that I know of, but you should check with the theater directly. And enjoy the show as I will be seeing it a week later.

We have been to this theatre several times and I don't recall them offering one. You might want to contact them to be sure. The show is amazing and your grandkids will love it. Enjoy the show.
