I have to say that the Beacon Theatre in New York City was one of my least favorite concert venues that I've been to. While the concert I saw was fabulous, I found the theatre to be a bit rinky dink.

Affordable drinks and snacks, clean bathrooms, great acoustics, EMT on-duty - what's not to like about the Beacon? My orchestra ticket cost less than a Broadway show including fees. Staff was friendly even when going through metal detectors (much friendlier than TSA). By the way,...More

What a beautiful theater! We had seats way up, but saw the stage just fine. Plenty of leg room, too.

do recommend getting there at least 1/2 hr prior due to the security line you will have to go thru...however, EVERYONE was just awesome and so accommodating and friendly. It was an amazing show, the theater is just beautiful

Terrific showplace after a much needed renovation quite a few years ago. Staff always welcoming. Of course, like so many venues, service fees are crazy high.

Very cool venue to see a show at. Good sound system, and nice sight lines. The seats are a bit "snug" for us long legged people but not impossible. I love the old art deco feel of the place and the ornate glamour that reminds...More

Beacon is all assigned seating as far as I know. I have never heard of General. I fear it may be in the nosebleeds.
