    Joe Hisaishi performance is unforgettable experience! Thank you Radio City for bringing him to NYC! The venue itself is magical and iconic.

    For me it had been on my bucket list ‘if I ever made it to NYC”. Somewhat emotional knowing how many musicians have graced the stage and got their start here. Billy or Mr. Apollo was a wealth of information having had something to do with the Apollo for 50 years. Don’t miss this tour!

    Went to see phantom of the opera.
    Purchased tickets in the UK, very reasonable so we were worried about the view etc.
    We should not have worried the seats were great, the theatre is well tiered so even me at 5ft 4 had no issue with obscured views.
    The production was fantastic and we had an amazing evening on Broadway

    The theatre is such an intimate venue, I highly recommend experiencing a performance here! Entry and exit were both quick and efficient, also had really clean bathrooms.

    I booked a last minute ticket to see wicked in august & had a great night. The show was fantastic & even being at a seat further in the back I still had a great view.

    This is potentially the comfiest theatre seat I’ve ever had. As someone who’s on the larger side, the seat was so roomy and comfy. I was here solo, and there was the perfect seat that was on its own which gave me loads of leg room. Food and drink was extremely expensive but that’s to be expected.

    We loved the absolutely wonderful feeling and atmosphere in the theater watching "Aladdin". We would love to go back again with the whole family next year.

    The Lyric is BEAUTIFUL! I sat in the center - third to the last row - and it was a great vantage point. Bathrooms were clean, spacious, and wonderful. Also - there was a QR code on the armrest to have food delivered to your seat. Cool feature!

    Service at Minskoff Theatre proves while it is amongst the worlds greats! Greg, Christine, Nicholas, Lawrence and the staff at the ox office window felt like they gave me personal service. My friend was there in a cast boot and they were accommodating, kind, patient, and ensured we were looked after even before we were inside. Staff helped my friend to and from their seat with care and attention, box office charged my phone for me, and drinks at the bar were so good and the two staff were SO efficient AND friendly. Obviously the show itself, Lion King did not disappoint. We hung around for a bit following the performance (charging my phone looking out over Times Square) and it's amazing how fast and friendly the staff cleaned up! 100% for this experience.

    The Beacon Theatre is an entertainment venue and former movie palace at 2124 Broadway New York City, NY. Before going into the theatre, you can buy some cakes or cookies in Levain Bakery which is next to the Beacon Theatre. For living, I love the Hotel Beacon.

    Phantom of the Opera has been long standing at Broadway for a reason! The singers sound powerful and hauntingly beautiful and the actors were especially captivating. I absolutely love the dramatic chandelier drop and the misty rowboat scenes. I would definitely recommend it!

    Went to see the Music Man with Hugh Jackman and Beth Sutton. OMG - It was fantastic. The whole cast did an absolutely wonderful job. You got caught up in the story of Professor Harold Hill from the moment the show began. The show was never dragging and at times the cast was caught off guard because another actor made them laugh. If you like musicals and liked the movie with Robert Preston and Shirley jones, you will love this.

    Great holiday performance! Very memorable. Even seats up high has a great view and wonderful sound. COVID protocols were enforced, but not onerous. Staff were friendly and helpful. Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola is great too. Enjoy!

    We had seats L 10 and L 12 for the 2PM showing of Hamilton. These are amazing seats, however if you are of the fluffy size, you may be a bit squished. The theatre is small, especially for how many people are crammed into the theater. The bathroom line at intermission is INSANE for women int wrapped back into the theater, and it took all of my fifteen minutes and I busted my butt. It is also down stairs, so keep that in mind. The cast was amazing!

    We went to Moulin Rouge at the Al Hirschfield Theatre.

    The venue has a nice classical style and the set fit Moulin Rouge was sensational.

    The seating was comfortable and our view very good.

    The bar prices were reasonable and the staff offered brilliant banter.
