The theater is an excellent building with very comfortable seats. Located in the heart of the Times Square. Too bad the show we saw was boring.

On the Town is just a fun show, no other way to say it. The singers, dancers, and orchestra were all excellent. If you're looking for an intellectual plot, don't see this. The theater is lovely. We were there during Fleet Week and that just...More
