    Nice theatre space for larger productions up toward Carnegie Hall. Decent leg room... Unless you are well over six feet tall.

    A beautiful space, but like many old theaters, it's not as handicap accessible as it could be. And mid to rear balcony is definitely an obstructed view, so keep that in mind.

    Balcony affords nice view of Near East architecture, if not the stage.

    Very nice and accessible theatre. Although the fact that they make you purchase a cup to put any drink you buy in is lame

    Really nice intimate theater. Can feel a bit crowded, particularly toward the back. If you get the chance to sit up close, take it.

    Great sound for music performances. If the showtime is listed as 8pm, it means the show starts at 8pm. Get there early if you're seated in the balcony.

    Arrive early if you are seated in the balcony. Long walk upstairs and if you are in the middle its a hike past lots of people.

    This place is just getting worse and management is apathetic or missing the mark. Staff is mindless and rules supersede crowd management and comfort. We were told re entry was ok then gave us trouble.

    For the annual Fall for Dance Festival, go online for tickets an hour before they go on sale to get online. The online system works really well.

    If you find yourself at the entrance at 130 56th St, you can walk through the adjacent building's lobby to reach 55th St. The 56th St entrance is not for ticketed guests.
