Travelled from Arizona to NYC with my granddaughter to see Frozen. Outstanding! Kid friendly staff. Enjoyed the feel of the yesteryear of the St. James!

We've been to several shows at the St. James Theatre over the years. On this trip, we brought our family to Frozen and it was a worse St. James Theatre experience than usual. This review is for the theatre only, not the show. The St....More

This is an older theater, renovated for Frozen. The seats are small sized, with a small lobby. Seems quite a few stairs too. Inside, it was compact and sitting at the back was not too far from the stage. The stage controller was at the...More

First let me say the play frozen was awesome. Now the security at the door is rude. I get having security but you can be somewhat nice. Theater help was amazing. Theater seats are small!!! For the price you pay.

Just returned from enjoying Frozen on Broadway...Fabulous production...talented cast...faithful to the movie yet fresh! Unfortunately there were several "butt" jokes throughout and 3 scenes with "nude" dancers (nothing but flesh-colored leotards on) covering parts with branches. There were also 3 on-stage costume changes which left...More
