The Magnet Theater is off the beaten track for tourists, but a very worthwhile improv theater to visit. Our first visit to NY and a great place to get started on our vacation. The improv show was fun and engaging in a relaxed and welcoming...More
On our second visit, my husband and I laughed throughout almost the entire 1 hour “make up a musical” improv sketch show.
Clever songs, great voices, funny movement, great accompaniment band. Can’t beat the $10 ticket price & you can even purchase wine, beer, and...More
I stoped in on a whim while on a business trip in NY. I love improv and when I found out about the place, I had to stop. The show was two groups of women tag teaming and performing skits. Most of it was funny...More

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.
