    The bathroom situation here is absolutely ridiculous. One women's bathroom for the entire theatre. Make sure to go before you come to the show!

    The theater itself has an amazing and long history but logistically getting a 1300 seat house in and out and to the restrooms can be challenging, especially when you're walking on crutches like I was

    Hamilton is absolutely incredible even from the last row in the house. Unmissable.

    The front mezz is a great place to sit if you can't get orchestra seats. If you're in the orchestra above row J, the incline is pretty steep, so you can see well.

    Be prepared for a theatre overwhelmed by Hamilton success that it can't quite fit everyone in the lobby. Long bathroom, bar and merch queues

    A nice sized theater where every seat has a decent view of the stage. Front row involved a bit of neck craning, but I'll take a little discomfort in exchange for some Hamilton :).

    A new, genuine, beautiful musical. It wouldn't matter if Idina Menzel, Anthony Rapp and LaChanze were in it, the show would be really good. But with them it's fantastic.

    If/Then is a must-see for anyone, especially for young adults just moving to a big city, getting a new job, going into new relationships. It's about the "what ifs" and "what might have beens".

    HAMILTON-Phenomenally excellent energizing brilliant storytelling, singing, rapping, lighting, and street smart choreographic excitement wrapped around a moving historical tale of allegorical magic!

    If you cut your legs you might feel comfortable at this thester. Other than that, "if/then" is a great play. Idina Manzel sings beautifully in a brilliant history of odds and "what ifs".

    Romeo & Juliet w/Orlando Bloom = fantastic. A superb cast and just a great take/direction. Also, the Pirates of the Caribbean films clearly helped someone prepare for the knife fighting as Romeo...

    Agree w/other 4sq post that orchestra seats are more like mezzanine, which would be fine except for the partially obstructed view of the main stage, preventing us from seeing char. on elevated set

    The theatre is very musty -- I started sneezing half way through the show. The lack of bathroom facilities is a pain, but I have to admit they have Disney-esque solutions to ensure orderly flow.

    If/Then started performances at the Richard Rodgers. Always check if we have it on the board at TKTS before heading to the box office. We're only a block away!

    One of my least favorite theatres. The raised orchestra section makes you feel like you're in the mezzanine

    Great theater, maybe needs some renovations and new seats, but that won't happen for a long time because of Hamilton.

    Very different, it has a modern take to it. Orlando Bloom was great, a few great shakespearean actors...
  • IrmaZandl T.
    Hamilton in previews. Opening August 6. Great show - fab music, dialogue, choreography and costumes BUT 30 mins too long.

    The lobby is claustrophobic but the theatre itself is lovely.

    Adam GillenJanuary 12, 2012
    Didn't bother me but there's no elevator and if you have nose bleeds you have to go all the way down to the floor level to use the bathroom. Otherwise Porgy and Bess was excellent.

    Pay attention to the bathroom locations - there's a serious scrum during intermission when trying to get across the lobby to them.

    A beautifully maintained theater that's presidential and perfect for Hamilton

    Steep rake which means front mezzanine preferable to back of orchestra. Note bathrooms are way way downstairs in basement.

    Ladies, make sure if you're in the orchestra, you walk to the left to head to the bathrooms. Kind of a nightmare at intermission.

    This theatre has serious nosebleed seats .mezzanine is off limits if you have vertigo
  • Toad M.

    SEATS: avoid rear mezzanine row D seats 1-9. this theatre already lacks comfortable leg room space but this way you avoid sitting behind a wall-type surface. i'd recommend front mezzanine row F.

    It wasn't that good. Idina is the glue to a broken show that's confusing and not up to par with her previous blockbuster musicals.
