    It's a really fun time to spend the day. All the Michael Jackson Characters had beautiful voices and presented his life really great. One of the best plays I've seen. Do recommend

    MJ the Musical
    We went to Neil Simon Theater to see MJ the musical. It is a beautiful theater. The show exceeded expectations. The staff is friendly and helpful. They do a great job, moving a lot of people in and out of the theater.

    Ticket Counter guy is the MAN!
    I just have to give a BIG Texas thank you to the gentleman at the ticket counter on July 11th! We had tickets for 1pm and I had it in my head it was at 2. We got there late and he did a miracle for us to be able to see it that night in a similar section! My mother would have been out so much money and he was so kind and only gave me a little bit of a hard time, haha. LOVED the show (we saw MJ), the theater was very nice with bathroom attendant and all. It was a highlight of our trip that we could have easily missed!

Visited this theatre to see MJ (The Michael Jackson musical). Aramie Payton who played MJ was brilliant in song and dance. Theatre was quite cramped as most are but the toilets just can't cope with the volume of people, men's and womens both. Great long queues making it nigh on impossible to get any where near the bar. We couldn't so didn't buy drinks. Very poor. Music of MJ was very good though the backing bad was too loud.

Tip: Deal directly with the box office to purchase tickets.
The box office clerk was wonderful. She offered me a great ticket option (orchestra center, row C, seat 112). The leg room was great and I experienced MJ as I could never have imagined. It was nice being up front, seeing the action on stage and feeling the rhythm of the music.

I haven't even gone to the show yet and I'm disappointed. I'm a photographer and aN adult that can follow rules. I can't bring my camera to the city because it's not allowed in the NS theater? UNBELIVABLE!! If you say I cant take photos during the show I can apply to this . Im taking the train into the city so no way around this. You know people with phone cameras will absolutely be sneaking videos and photos. Total BS

The staff was friendly, organized and was able to get the people off the streets and into the theatre and in the right direction for seating in a timely manner. The theatre was nice and clean and had great aisle staff that was very helpful and friendly. The show itself was phenomenal!! The only con was the bathroom situation, but that is to be expected.

We actually just planned on seeing Wicked at the Gerschwin, but were able to get last minute tickets to see MJ at the Neil Simon theater. The theater, itself, is a lovely old building with a domed roof and a beauriful crystal chandelier.

The understudy playing MJ (Jamaal Fields-Green) brought the role to life. His dancing, singing, and acting of this role were phenomenal. Go see this play....it is so worth your time.

Had a fantastic time watching Michael Jackon the musical at the Neil Simon Theatre. It was a full house but was guided to my seat by the usher immediately. Loved the stage door experience. Overall I love Broadway and would recommend to others.

The theater is a few blocks out from the other theaters but still close to Times Square. The theater ceiling is beautiful and the staff was nice. The show was FANTASTIC and I mean, go see it twice good. Make sure you check it out
