Handy Tips

  • While there are concession stalls available at the theatre, many past visitors have complained about the exorbitant prices of drinks and snacks. Have a quick bite before you enter the theatre to avoid overspending.
  • There are additional restrooms available in the theatre but the queue is generally very long. To avoid missing the beginning of the second half of the show, visit the restroom before the show starts and not during the intermission.
  • If you're considering seats in the rear mezzanine, steer clear of seats 11 and 13 in row D. There's a big railing in front of these seats, partially obstructing the view.
  • New York is a busy city and it's very easy to get stuck in traffic. Plan to reach the theatre at least 45 minutes before the show starts.
