  • Make sure you see Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, a musical about the seventh U.S. President with an emo-rock score and an ironic, silly-smart approach. Opens Oct 13.
  • Once is an amazing show, but be warned- the ushers are the rudest I've ever seen.
  • Such a beautiful theater. Not a bad seat in the house!
  • DON'T buy drinks on stage at intermission. They rush you off as soon as you buy your $13 beer, $14 wine or $5 water. Have a drink on stage BEFORE the show. At least then you can enjoy the jam session.
  • Once the musical is absolutely fantastic, don't judge it by the film, those two are as far apart as they could possibly be
  • You can buy drinks at the bar onstage before the show and during intermission! They also have (expensive) water if you're under 21.
  • If you're here for Once go onto the stage before the show & during intermission, where they have a functioning bar set up & the actors start coming onstage.
  • Once, the musical is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Superb. Exquisite. Go see it--whatever the cost. You'll never be the same.
  • Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is the best show in town! Huge restrooms, too!
  • Do see God of Carnage
  • Lovely theatre, the space feels very intimate.
  • The Color purple is a must see if you are in NYC
  • There are no bad seats! Depends on where you would like to sit and enjoy the show. Not a huge venue. The show (The Color Purple) is awesome
  • Great theater, good views from anywhere. Large restrooms in basement. Currently showing 'The Color Purple' - so good!
  • It's Only a Play is hilarious!!!
  • Saw "it's only a play"! Martin Short stole the show and was hilarious per usual!
  • Intimate theater layout, easy to see and hear well from any seat!
  • Make sure to arrive early to watch the pre-performance
  • Rush tickets available each day when box office opens, but get there early for these cheap seats.
  • come early to Once for pre-show performances! this theater also has big bathrooms-it's a broadway miracle!
