A great Wednesday night outing. Tickets were reasonable and available. The acting is outstanding! The storyline is engaging and funny. One real set that is done well. The perfect break in the midst of lots of work.

What amazes me about Broadway is the great number of old establishments that are kept well, and serve to bring you back in time. St James is like that - small, nothing special, well kept and a nice place to sit and enjoy a play,

Saw this show yesterday on a last minute whim, a little slow the first act, but the 2nd act was much funnier in my opinion. Well worth checking out especially with minimal $42 rush tickets day of.

When you arrive, I would ask for assistance going up the steps. I am sure someone will be happy to accommodate you. Everyone is friendly at the theatre.

Those are both pretty good seats, and in this small venue would provide equal views of the show. Those orchestra seats are aisle and right next to the center section. The mezz seats are more centered, but you lose the... More
