The USO and Cort Theatre graciously gifted this military family with two excellent seats, K101-102 to see Mike Birbiglia’s one act comedy, The New One. The show was a bit risqué but hilarious! The theater is cozy. They provide wireless listening devices free (hold your...More

I liked this theatre. It’s not really off broadway but being closer to 6th Avenue than Broadway, it’s slightly off the beaten path and away from the crowds of Times Square. I am 5’11” and mostly leg and I was comfortable (having an aisle seat...More

We saw M. Butterfly at the Cort Theatre. We had never been in the Cort and it is a beautiful, but a somewhat claustrophobic venue. It has an orchestra and two balconies. The decorative detail is gorgeous and must have been restored in recent years....More

Rush seats for Bright Star can be located in any section of the theater (orchestra, mezzanine, balcony or boxes), but they are typically in the best available locations.

I agree with the previous comments. Rows such as AA are too close & you would be looking up. I had a cheap seat in the balcony & was very satisfied with the view. No problem hearing either.
