Went to see the closing weekend of "Once on this Island". The performance was unreal...so good! The theater was the perfect venue for this play, as it really seemed like you were looking at an island. Overall, the experience was good, but if you are...More

This was one of the best shows I saw this year!! An outstanding cast. It’s too bad it will be closing its doors on 1/8/19.

We didn't exchange Christmas gifts this year and opted for a family experience of 2 nights in NYC instead. This was the only show we had tickets for ahead of time because my children were both involved with it in high school. Plus, I didn't...More

I hate to give a bad review when the cast, crew and musicians are trying so hard, but sometime you just gotta tell the truth: this is a turkey. The problem doesn't lie with the actors or with the staging and set - it's the...More

Overall, really well done. I didn't love the ending, but I did overall really enjoy the production. It's one of the few shows I'd see again. It is often listed in the TKTS booth so you can get discounted tickets. The theater is small and...More

It took me about half hour to fully get into this show but eventually I started to enjoy it. I am also very glad it was only 90 mins. Any longer would have been too much.

This theatre is in the round, so the audience surround the performers. Once on this island was performed brilliantly and with the sounds and lighting effects, you almost thought you were there. There was no intermission, so get drinks beforehand. Well recommended.

This is a wonderful small but unique theatre. The stage is the middle with the audience completely surrounding it (like a circus). Literally every seat is a good seat. We bought three of the last seats available and they were wonderful (and much less expensive...More
