I enjoyed "A Bronx Tale", a newly opened musical at the Longacres Theatre. The musical score and livr theatrics greatly enhanced the film version starring Chaz Palmentieri and Robert DiNiro. The "curse" surrounding the Longacre portending failed, or disappointing productions in the past hopefully will be foiled with "A Bronx Tale". The theatre is quite old (100 years +) and... More

I saw "Allegiance" when I visited New York City last winter. The price per ticket was very reasonable, and it didn't feel like there was a bad seat in the house. A beautiful historic theatre, with lots of character and first-rate production. I wasn't disappointed by my first NYC theatre experience there, and would gladly visit again. A word of... More

Most will not rate this theater poorly, but if you have any trouble walking, are elderly, or just have difficulty with stairs, you really need to plan ahead. We got mezzanine tickets, and the elevator only serves the balcony. There's no warning about this when you buy tix, so it's a good thing the person we were with was not... More

This is a small theatre - at least compared to some of the other theatres on Broadway - but it's a gem, with good acoustics, nice but not ostentatious period decor, and the courtesy of having ushers bring water, wine and candy into the audience (though $5 is a little steep for a bottle of water that retails for well...

Pretty typical Broadway theatre. Rest rooms up and down and some beautiful architecture. Of course, you typically choose a theatre by what's playing there and if you can catch Allegiance, it's wonderful.

It was built in 1913- has beautiful architectural features. Not a big theater so almost every seat will have a great view. Seats are really comfortable, staff was very friendly

Loved the show. Make time to see it before it leaves in mid February. Theatre staff was friendly and I really liked the gentle reminder from the usher before the show started about turning off your cellphone as she walked the aisles.

"Allegiance" is an excellent and timely musical with a very talented cast. If not for that, I probably would have whined about the balcony seats, which were quite cramped. However, the balcony section still provided a good view of the stage. Acoustics were fine. The best part of the night for me was being able to stage door stalk the... More

This is my first time visiting this theater. I saw Allegiance (beautiful story and amazing voices from the cast). I purchased student tickets and were seated in the rear balcony. Our seats was third row from the back and the vantage point was still good. You still feel close by the stage. A warning though, There is a pole blocking... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
