    If I'm even 30 percent interested in a show here, I'll go just because I love the room so much and know the artists will give it their best.

    This is an absolutely gorgeous theatre. The lower balcony, front row is ideal for low budget tickets with an amazing view. There are no elevators but there are bathrooms upstairs.

    The Beacon was home to the Tony Awards, and their line-up is a good mix of “your parents music that you actually like” and “your music that your parents actually like”, which is definitely good thing. Read more

    Went to see Seinfeld stand up. Ushers are so disrespectful & loud when seating latecomers. The first 20 mins if the show you couldn't hear anything over their walkie talkies/babbling

    Sold out show? Intermission? You're a female that has to use the bathroom? Head towards the lower level to save time. They herd people in and out pretty efficiently.
