Finally a theater that has enough bathroom facilities for theatergoers and wide staircases. Very nice theater and I also liked that they admitted us 45 minutes before the show unlike other theaters that leave you out in the cold. Looking forward to seeing other productions here.

This is a comfortable theatre and easy walk from Grand Central Station or Restaurant Row. It's one of the few NYC theaters that allows patrons to wait inside for the house to open. This is ideal in inclement weather or for elderly visitors.

I liked walking in at street level and being on the mezzanine level. The seats were great and it was easy to get and out of the theater.

Recently took in an afternoon showing of the Carole King inspired show on Broadway. Wow, what a show. If you like her music you won't be disappointed. The show has such a flow to it from her teen years to her adult years as a superstar that won't make you yawn once. Once the show is over you will realize there was much more to her life and music than you thought. Highly recommended for everyone! The Stephen Sondheim Theater was an excellent venue to see a show. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Also,to me, the theater was a little unique. When you walk in street level the doors immediately in front of you lead to the mezzanine level. The orchestra section is accessed by taking the steps down a level. Clean,well kept,and their employees were very professional. Great theater, would go there again.

Have been to this theatre before.
Seems like I saw 42nd St. Here.
The foot work the shoes were easy to watch.
The stage is well placed rounded seating giving great visibility.
Perfect for Beautiful and the story
of Carole King.
Good location. Excellent hamburgers across the street.
Do visit when in New York. There is, proposed another 10% tax on corporations in the city. Most likely prices will probably become prohibitive. Basic services seem to be compromised with over spending and not enough money after all the lavish spending, Such as the planned completion of the world trade center.
If possible and safe at the time do see this theatre.
