We went to see the Tennessee Williams play The Glass Menagerie at the Belasco Theater. The play was great, honestly a little depressing for my taste but it was good. The highlight is the Theater. It's beautiful! It seems to be the perfect size, big enough for a Broadway show but small enough for an intimate experience. We purchased seats... More

I saw the Glass Menagerie here this past weekend and I found that it is my least favorite theater. While the history of the theater is fascinating and it is over 100 years old, I was able to hear the street traffic during the performance. I think if it were a musical, that would not have been an issue, but... More

My husband and I recently saw The Glass Menagerie here. The Glass Menagerie is my favorite play, and I was fortunate to see it live on Broadway. Even my husband liked it (he had never read the play). I love going to plays; I don't go too often, but when I do, I'm excited when it's at a theatre like... More

Got to see Sally Field. Feel very fortunate to be able to see an actor of this caliber perform live. There was a cast of 4. The theater is charming. We sat in the balcony and was able to see and hear just fine.

These days the Broadway theatres are amplified and one misses the resonance of actors' voices. Seeing Glass Menagerie with real live, un-electrified sound was a real treat. Seeing Sally Field perform was a real experience--despite the minimalist staging she gave it her all. The spare scenery was not really necessary--the rainstorm toward the end of the show was also not... More

We saw the latest Broadway version of "The Glass Menagerie" in one of the smaller New York theatre and our seats in the 3rd row of the mezzanine were excellent, affording us perfect views of the entire production. Although I am not accustomed to seeing a 2 hour 5 minute play without an intermission, the acting was so good that... More

Went to see The Glass Menagerie and sat in the 3rd row of the balcony (as did another reviewer). Much of the play takes place at the front of the stage or even just in front of the stage. This led to not being able to see some of the scenes at all. I have to assume it wasn't much... More

We went to see the Glass Menagerie at the Belasco theatre. We got seats up in the balcony (3rd row up on the isle). The theatre is absolutely beautiful with classic touches and beautiful ceiling and lighting. The seats are pretty cramped and there is no intermission, so they get a bit uncomfortable. The acting was great, however; from where... More

Decided to watch this show as it was across from where we were staying. The acting was great but the storyline? Just weird and uncomfortable. However the theatre was lovely and we had a good view of the stage.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
