We attended Tales from Red Vienna, the story of a woman who turns to prostitution during WWI (Why? Sorry, no spoiler here). The show has bits of humor, but basically it's melodrama. The venue is small, which is nice - one feels connected to the actors. All in all, we enjoyed our evening and would return to this cozy theater in the heart of NYC.

I have gone to a few plays at City Center that I found very enjoyable. As my office was just down the street I often stopped in to see their offerings. A well kept clean pleasant place. I have been to special occasions here as well, they provide spaces for these as well.

Singlemamatravelista sharing some thoughts about the NYC Center and Alvin Ailey Winter Ensemble of Classics and Revelations,

Top 3 Reasons to put NYC center on your TO DO List!

3. Gorgeous architecture in the heart of the City- This building is unique in its own right. Hosting the Alvin Ailey Winter Ballet Ensemble, it resembles the grace and flair seen in the Classics and Revelations scenes portrayed on stage. The seats are a little tight for us "Talls", but not uncomfortable.

2. City Buzz- If you like to be in a happening place in NYC with all the glam and glitz of limos, celebrities and seemingly, the it crowd, fair your chances to a show and be amongst the who... Who? You!!!

1. Alvin Ailey Classics and Revelations- This is a ballet performance that will interest those who bore to classical music and dance. The show is full of emotion and energy. The ballet dance is incredible as the bodies stretch across the stage in forms and contortions that can only be developed by those who fair worthy of Ailey training. The story line is captivating, leaving you wanting more. Every emotion is developed throughout the performance. Onlookers can expect to feel fun and sexy, understand pain, develop more compassion and renew the soul.......

Check out my pics too....

We also attended for Alvin Ailey. Great sight lines so important in dance. I think it was renovated just a couple years ago. We also go there for the Encores revivals. This is closer to Central Park than to times squares. Many places to et on same block.
