Who can go to New York without visiting Broadway, and maybe take in a show or two? There's plenty of restaurants in the area (both chain and individually owned). In addition, it's not far from the southern entrance to Central Park, many of the museums (MET, MOMA), and many touristy shops.

We saw "Fiddler on the Roof" here. Beautiful theatre in the older school manner. Really a nice venue to enjoy an evening on Broadway.

The theater is medium sized, with nice plush chairs and with a rise (we were in the third row) which enabled us to see well. Also, there was easy exit at the end because the side doors opened. But as mentioned before, there was little leg room. Wine was sold for $23 for large size, and $14 for small size.... More

Interesting play. Liv Schreiber was superb. I enjoyed it more than I anticipated. Storyline is familiar since the Glen Close movie came out so I knew what to expect. The actors were superb.

This is a gorgeous venue for a show on Broadway. There's a huge chandelier hanging in the middle. I think there is very good visibility from all seats. Sound is good. There are plenty of restrooms. The seats are comfortable except there is no legroom, at least not in upper level. There's no stretching your legs out under the seat... More

I can only recall being disappointed once at a Broadway show and we've seen plenty. This time we saw Beautiful at the Stephen Sondheim theatre. It was a very good production with great songs. You'll love it.

I saw Fiddler on the roof here. Went to Times Square and picked up tickets. The show was great, a classic of course, and the theater itself is great too - nice, warm atmosphere, good chairs and OK visibility from pretty much everywhere. With my 50% discount tickets I got a front row seat at the balcony, in the middle.... More

Visited this theater to see Fiddler on the Roof. Very easy to get to and right near the other theaters. If you're tall be warned, there is not a lot of leg room in the rows. But it's an old theater and probably to be expected.

Saw Fiddler this week. Beautiful theatre, stunning production, fabulous staff. Wine a little expensive at $23 but huge quantity and good quality brought to your seat. Worth every penny. Lovely!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
