The Cats musical was very good. Good performance of the Cats cast. Live supported by the orchestra. Overall a very good experience. Small intimate theater.

Went here for a very romantic surprise trip to the city with my spouse for Valentine's Day weekend and we had an absolutely amazing time! The entire experience was magical and we cannot wait to do it all again very soon. I've always wanted to see Cats in particular and we were not disappointed and were devastated when they stopped...

On the February fourth, I went to the musical Cats. The personnal was really kind, a lot of informations about the seats, the show, etc... The sound was really good, I had a incredible time. The dancers, singers was very talented and the set very elaborate. Restroom clean. I recommend this show and this theater.

What an awesome experience to see CATS in this theatre! The set design, the cast, and the music were incredible. The atmosphere was energetic and full of excitement. Mostly we noticed that the acoustics in this theatre was rich and powerful. We loved every minute!

I got to see Cats at the Neil Simon Theatre: This show has it all, phenomenal dancing (tap, jazz, ballet and contemporary) a cast with amazing voices and a psychedelic story line. It's everything that Broadway has to offer! So glad Cats came back to Broadway and to the Neil Simon theatre. This venue is great. We sat row D... More

This was our first time seeing CATS . We expected to see Leona Lewis but apparently she left the show .Her replacement was excellent. We thought that the first act was fair but Act 2 was fantastic.

We loved the show! Music, acting and costumes were outstanding! I had never seen this play so did not know what to expect. The story is really of the moment with what is happening with election and government. It is about tolerance and acceptance and coming together! While the show was great the seats are really old and very uncomfortable!

Went to see Cats with my daughter who is an adult. We had 6 row center seats which were comfortable to us. I read reviews that said it was tight seating but we are both 5'6" and we were fine. The Staff was very friendly and I would come back! I like small venues.

Amazing, amazing, amazing! Cats was simply incredible. The theater is smaller than I expected, but it is well run. We arrived about 45 minutes early and had to wait outside for about 20 minutes before they opened the doors, but people got in quickly. The theater is fantastic, and the dancing and singing were exactly what you would expect of... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
