    Always packed 24/7 you must visit times square when you come to NYC. Be aware of the scammers like CD guys, monks wearing orange who try and hand you a bracelet, and anyone else that tries to talk to you is probably a scam. Be smart and keep walking.

    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

    A stunning theatre, and an equally stunning show. The theatre is bigger than most in new York and offers showgoers spaceous seating and unobstructed views. The staff are most friendly and were lovely to chat with, my viewing of wicked was made all the better because of this.

    We say Aladdin the Musical on April 15, 2022 and it was simply amazing! The theater is perfect! We had 10th row seats that I purchased in Jan. 2022 and the seats did not disappoint! Highly recommend this theater as well as the play- one of the best!

    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!

    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!

    Our last night during our most recent visit in Manhattan included seeing "The Music Man" with Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster. It was earlier this year; March 25th. New York and Broadway was just recovering out of the last wave of covid. So, we were still required to wear masks and proof of vaccination. We were prepared for that in advance. Things have lightened up since then, but we still had a magical experience. How lucky we were to enjoy the play and everything about that. Of course, we also had to "mask up" throughout the performance inside, along with everyone else. We'll never forget the ushers walking up and down the aisles with their "mask up" reminder signs.

    Despite it all, we LOVED the Winter Garden and the great revival play. Of course, we've seen the film many years ago with Rober Preston. Still, we enjoyed the revival with Hugh. Each set was magical to us and quite fun and creative. We paid a dear price for our seats, but we got what we paid for. It's a typically sized theater on Broadway and has its own sense of place. It's relatively small and intimate. We've surely seen plays there before but can't recall what.

    By now, the play may have moved on again to the road, but we will always remember our time there.

    Amazing uplifting experience. I went having always wanted to visit since reading the cross and switch blade book. The worship was outstanding. It felt like being at a concert however the leader did a great job at trying to encourage congregation to take part. Preaching was powerful as well. Will most definitely return if I am so blessed to come back to NYC

    Beautiful theater. Lobby is a little tight and small. The seats are ridiculously tiny and old-fashioned. If you are even moderately over-weight it is seriously difficult to fit in the seats. Plan on sitting shoulder to shoulder (literally) unless you are lucky and sit next to little kids. Shows ran on time. Ushers were polite and helpful.

    Comfortable seats! Saw Moulin Rouge here, it was amazing, but came to say the seats are plus-size people friendly and I felt like I had room!

    The St James is a lovely theater, but the seats are so small. The ushers were very hospitable and helpful. We were there to see Into the Woods. Everything about the show was perfect, the acting, the songs, the set and the orchestra were all amazing. I’d see it again in a heartbeat.

    Theater is a small ways off Broadway. There's a large sign above the door that allows you to see it from a distance. It can be a little cramped, trying to que up and enter. The lobby and hallways are small. The design of the interior is older, so there's nice molding and chandeliers etc... we sat in upper balcony middle right 2 row from ledge. Had a good view, but if the actors move towards the front you will have to lean forward a tad. It can be a tad cramped up top, but there's not a bad view.
