Neil Simon Theatre

250 W 52nd St (btwn Broadway & 8th Ave)
New York, NY 10019


  • First called the Alvin Theater, this structure was built in 1926-27 to the design of Herbert J. Krapp. Several Gershwin productions debuted here & it became an interior & exterior landmark in 1985.
  • Ethel Merman, Lucille Ball, and Liza Minelli all made their Broadway debuts at this theater.
  • You must see Catch me if you can! Great musical!
  • sit in the mezz. half the price and you can still see it all.
  • Bryan Cranston is electric in All the Way. He clearly relishes the role and keeps the audience laughing. His full-throttle performance is one of the best I ever saw on Broadway.
  • Bryan Cranston- all the way!!
  • Say hi to the kung fu master Eddie or the crazy cat lady Katie (they're both ushers)
  • We watched Cats. The show was great but the background music was from a tape n after the show the staff was quite unfriendly to get you out as quick as possible...
  • Beautiful theater. We were first row mezzanine with our eleven year old granddaughter and the view was perfect.
  • Great atmosphere. Works really well for Cats, which is fabulous!
  • The structure and architecture of this theatre is amazing. The musical gigi is the complementary and perfect match for Neil Simon. Go go go
  • The Last Ship w/Mr. H
  • For a big show, go for mezz seats! There's too much to see it all from orchestra.
  • Bryan Cranston
  • It's still early in the production, but Bryan Cranston is at his finest. The cast is phenomenal and bring such dynamism on stage. I have great respect for the effort spent passing Civil Rights Act.
  • I can't emphasize enough how wonderful this show is. Amazing acting from the entire cast. Being huge Breaking Bad fans, my husband and I stayed after to meet Bryan Cranston. NICEST man EVER! =)
  • All the Way featuring Bryan Cranston.
  • Big Fish is AMAZING! Better than the movie, a HuGE compliment bcus I LOVED the film. Just as visual, creative and innovative. As informative as the book, which I HAD to read after seeing the Broadway!
  • I enjoyed Big Fish, but the seat was very uncomfortable. My seat was L111 of the balcony - right up against the railing. It didn't leave room for my feet and hurt to sit there. I'm of average height.
