We had purchased tickets to attend BlueMan Group in February. Unfortunately, our daughter got ill and we couldn't go. I called the box office and they were so nice/understanding in helping me reschedule the date. We ended up going in March. The theater is so small that there are no bad seats. We were in Orchestra NN. BlueMan Group is... More

Well worth the trip downtown to the small and personal Astor theatre - we went to see Blue man group - great show even though I ended up with half eaten marshmallow on my hands as I was dragged out of the audience to participate in teh show - great fun, super show well worth a off broadway experience and...

Yes, the theatre is small and the seating can be cramped, depending on where you sit. We sat in the second row, second section of ground floor seating. My boyfriend is 6'5 and didn't have much of a problem with room. We saw the Blue Man Group for his birthday and it was phenomenal. I loved that they incorporated the... More

While the show we saw was great, the seats in the Astore were horrible!! Unless you are a child your knees will be crammed into the seat in front of you. 3 of the 4 people in my group came away with bruises from being crammed into these seats!! I realize they want to get as many people in the... More

Seating was cramped with 7 seats on one side and 6 on either side of the aisle 15 or so rows deep. Also a balcony but the balcony stretches so far into the theater that unless you are closer than row OO anything happening above the stage can not be seen. Also the back rows of the balcony can't fully... More

We love the Blue Men. For the last three years we have seen them on the Norwegian Epic, and really enjoy the show. This year, we didn't have the opportunity to see them on the Epic, so decided that we would see them in their original setting whilst in NYC. The theatre is small, and the facilities are limited. Many... More

Very easy to find this place. We took the subway and the stop was right around the corner. This theater is the original one the Blue Man Group started in. It's also one of the oldest buildings in the city. With that in mind, this theater is small. Very, very small. The front row seats about 12 people and you... More

I went to the theatre with my boyfriend who is in a wheelchair. The site states there is ramp access. When we arrived we saw that there were steps into the theatre. I went down the stairs and spoke to a member of staff who said that the theatre was a land mark building and there was no other entrance.... More

We visited the Astor Place theatre whilst in NYC to see the Blue Man group. We found it to be a great little theatre as it's smaller than some of the others which meant that we got more interaction and right up close with the action and didn't miss a thing. The view from the balcony is great and we... More
