I would pay a lot of money to go back to 1980 and see Ian McKellan & Tim Curry in AMADEUS at the Broadhurst (I did catch Sir Ian in DANCE OF DEATH HERE more than 20 years later). ...

Type the title here for your review of Booth Theatre 4/24/2006

There is no space to wait at the Booth before you have your ticket, so hit the box office early and get inside. The Booth is located right on Shubert Alley (it backs up to the Shubert) and the box office line frequently spills out onto the street. Coat check and facilities are on the basement level. Your view will be fine if you are seated in the mezzanine, just beware of the fact that many coughers seem to sit there (at this and so many other Broadway theatres...such a shame that people don't open their cough drops BEFORE the curtain rises). This smaller house is named for Edwin Booth (or actually for another Manhattan theatre that was named for Booth). It seems that dark dramas are attracted to this theatre...FAITH HEALER, THE PILLOWMAN & THE BIRTHDAY PARTY. You can't miss the pretty door at the corner of the alley! more

Drama! 4/24/2006

I would pay a lot of money to go back to 1980 and see Ian McKellan & Tim Curry in AMADEUS at the Broadhurst (I did catch Sir Ian in DANCE OF DEATH HERE more than 20 years later). The theatre has been open since 1917 and has housed both musicals and plays, dramas and comedies. The space is named for George Broadhurst, a dramatist and theatre manager (he opened this theatre with the Shubert brothers). The back row has a great view! Telecharge is the ticketing agent for this theatre. Wheelchair accessible on the main floor. more

The Les Mis Theater 4/23/2006

The Imperial Theatre was built for large scale musicals and it shows. Not only is it a huge house (1,650 seats), but it was the 50th house the Shubert brothers built and has proven to be the crown jewel for the organization. After years of LES MISERABLES success (there is a plaque on the sidewalk outside the box office door), Hugh Jackman brought in the crowds during his stint as Peter Allan in THE BOY FROM OZ before the newest hit DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS started production there. For some, it will always be the Les Mis theater. With the Broadway royalty it brings in, it seems to have been appropriately named. more

Meeting Sally in the Alley 4/23/2006

Meet up in Shubert Alley before hitting a show at the classic Shubert Theatre. The alley is a heck of a lot bigger than the tiny lobby! The Shubert is one of the big boys of Broadway with over 1500 seats. When I sat in the back row for Spamalot, I still could see & hear. Was it the production? Acoustics? Microphones? A combination? I'll never know, but the $35 was one of the best cheap seats I have ever sat in. There are a limited number of bathrooms here - you may be competing with hundreds of others during a 10 minute intermission - so think before you drink. more

A Theatre With an Impressive History. 1/16/2006

Located between Broadway and Eighth Avenue, the Shubert Theatre is in the heart of Broadway. It also is, in many ways, part of the heart of Broadway. Named in memory of the oldest of the three Shubert brothers who made their marks on Broadway, this theatre opened in 1913 with a production of Hamlet. It has run the gamet of shows since then, putting on everything from A Chorus Line to Othello to Chicago. Currently, one can take in Spamalot at the Shubert Theatre, a hilarious musical based on Monty Python. However, good luck luck getting tickets for this show is sold out, adding just another notch of success in the Shubert's belt. more

A Theatre Specifically Made For Musicals 1/16/2006

Opened in 1923, The Imperial has seen a slew of theatrical successes come to life on it's stage. Fiddler on the Roof, Gypsy and Les Miserables are only three of the many shows that audiences have enjoyed inside the Imperial. I was able to take in Les Miserables twice during it's thirteen year stint and both shows were absolutely amazing, no doubt partially to the credit of the Imperial's amazing acoustics. Built specifically for musicals, the Imperial knows how to properly put on a hit. more

One of the world's best 8/5/2005

This is one place I prefer to go to see a great show. The entranceway is grand to say the least, and when you go into the theater it is a spectacular sight to see the high ceilings and elaborate displays of the production Phantom of the Opera. Well worth the price you pay for admission to have an experience here. more
