Intimate theater with fantastic acoustics and novel decor. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Conveniently located next to the Hotel Beacon and subway.

Ok - we knew Jerry Seinfeld was a world class comedian, but seeing him live was an experience we will always remember. At 61 he is STILL at the top of his game. His performance was remarkable and everything was perfectly timed and executed. He...More

What a beautiful theater and a great place to see Umphrey's McGee. Staff were all cool, smiles abounded as Umphs melted the face's off of their fans! Too bad blizzard killed day three. There's always next year! \mm/

The Beacon is an amazing classic theatre. From watching the Allman Brothers countless times rock this room to working backstage with Cyndi Lauper, the Beacon will always have a special place in my heart. Highly recommend anyone see anything here. Thanks!

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

I've never seen him in person and probably would never but comedy shows are not my thing. I would suggest calling the theater and see if they can help you. I personally would not take my children to see him.

When I am going to a gig at The Beacon Theater I like to go to Malachy's Donegal Inn on West 72nd Street. No live music but a great wee bar.
