Richard Rodgers Theater Reviews
Everything about the experience was fantastic. I called in to the front office on the off chance and got 3 tickets for the next day performance at face value. Sitting right at the back of the Mezzanine, the view was perfect, the seats very tight (esp in covid times) but i appreciate that its an old theater. Staff were very friendly, no delay in the merch shop and the show itself...... amazing.... would advise everyone to go if they get a chance... dont throw away your shot!!!!!

Hamilton on Broadway was a once-in-a-lifetime experience I am so thankful I was able to have. The Richard Rogers Theater is a gorgeous venue but it is an older theater so keep in mind leg room is tight and there only is one bathroom for each gender. The line for the ladies room during intermission wrapped back around into the theater, it was so long. Staff were courteous and the show itself was amazing.
