Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

“Six the Musical” was beautiful! However the ushers at the theater were annoying. Two of them came up and down the aisle of this small theater flashing their very bright flashlight across the audience, throughout the entire performance. This was very distracting to say the least! I guess they were upset that some patrons were photographing with their smart phones. There has got to be a better way to police this.

This is a small but beautiful theatre. We saw SiX here 4 times in one week. We were on the second row each time. Our seats were very comfortable, and the view from each seat was great. The sound system worked well. The theatre is themed perfectly for the show. The lobby is a bit small and can be cramped when the show's store is open, but the staff does a good job directing traffic. The theatre is intimate and chances are every seat has a decent view for this particular musical. By the way, SiX is so good and a must-see! It's perfect in this space.

"SIX" is not a traditional Broadway "musical," but it's a highly-entertaining song-and-dance performance by an all-women cast and musicians. The premise is clever: exploring King Henry VIII's six wives' lives from THEIR perspective, rather than from the King's and histories written by men. It's infused with a defiant feminist perspective, an ingenious conjecture that speculates how the wives might have told their story had they lived to do so.

We're glad we had previewed the score's music and lyrics before seeing the show, because we'd surely have missed some of the sexual innuendo amid the dazzling costumes and lights. (This is a young-audience show, which, like Hamilton, attracts viewers who have memorized the lyrics before even getting to the theater.)

There is no "scenery." The stage is splayed with constantly flashing-and-changing lights, and the six "wives" are always in motion, interspersing their musical stories with smart-ass remarks, shorthand and "LOLs" as if they were telling their stories through social media. (Indeed, one scene depicts King Henry's selection of one of his wives as if she had been on a dating app.) The singers repeatedly speak directly to the audience, deliberately ignoring the "fourth wall" customary in Broadway shows. Two electric guitarists, a drummer and an electric piano player are permanently positioned on the stage.

The Brooks Atkinson Theatre itself is a beautiful work of art. Be sure to leave time to admire its meticulous restoration before the show by gazing up at the ceiling and the walls. The stage is intimate, and most seating "feels" close to the performers. Logistics are inconvenient; reaching restrooms generally involves climbing up-and-down steep stairs. Most patrons complied with the theater's pandemic mask requirements during our performance.

This is a fun show to take in.

Had ticket for "six" via Ticketmaster which did not load correctly on my phone for entry. Huge shout out to staff who hustled me to box office who efficiently produced my ticket. Loved theater size, intimate so most seats good view of stage. Impressed with staff and building itself.

I came by here to see Six, and it was a great show! Check-in process was very smooth, and we were in our seats within about 10 minutes of getting in line. Bathrooms are spacious and clean. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

One of the tighter sized theaters on Broadway, but not the worst. Long legs beware or get an aisle seat. Vaccine cards & masks required for entry. The show itself is fun and funny and the actors are incredibly talented.

Went to see SIX here. While other shows were shutting down, this theatre has remained open. They perform the vaccination card checks outside while you are in line which helps to speed up entry process a bit. At this time, there is no food or beverage being sold here - but the show is only 80 min long. Bathrooms are upstairs and very clean. The theatre is relatively small, so there is not a bad seat in the place. I can see where the seat space is tight, however I sat in Row E of the mezzanine which the row right above the main aisle. The partition in front of my seat was just a curtain and allowed me to stretch my legs a bit, so it was very comfortable.

Old theatre with very cramped seating. Standard vaccinations and mask requirements. You are permitted to lower your mask to eat and drink at your seats BUT the ushers will hound you endlessly if you do that. Mask nazis. Stupid and unnecessary badgering of patrons. Go to any other theatre for more reasonable treatment.
