Foursquare Tips

  • The Brooks Atkinson Theatre was used by CBS TV in the 50's for such shows as "I've Got A Secret" and "What's My Line?"
  • Try the lottery! They start picking names 2 hours before the show!
  • Front mezzanine tickets are awesome
  • Smallish theater means even the back row of the balcony is a good seat!
  • Front row of the mezzanine = best seats in the house
  • See Waitress it is fantastic
  • The current show: Waitress
  • July 30th: See Jessie Mueller knock it out of the park as a baking guru in the new Sara Bareilles musical Waitress on Broadway. (Oh, and the whole theater smells like pie.)
  • Very long lines for female bathroom at intermission. Leave ASAP if you need to use the restroom during break.
  • Broadway Shows!
  • Another good venue
  • Cozy theater. Saw Spring Awakening. Balcony seats have better views than I'm used to
  • Beautiful theater. Seeing West Deaf Spring Awakening was a truly remarkable experience.
  • Smaller theater in the District, but great views from almost everywhere.
  • Front mezzanine is amazing as theater is so small you're basically overhanging the stage.
  • Don't get box seat tickets..
  • They do bag checks for food and drinks at this theater
  • You go there once, you'll be there twice... At least we were!! Friday night on balcony, Sunday matinee front row on the floor...
