We had read the reviews and were so expecting a great show but by far this was the absolute worst musical we have ever seen. It was so slow and actually boring. The muscians and vocalists were so talented but the four of us that...More

I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the show.
We thank you for your patronage.
This review is more for the production than the actual theatre - although the theatre was lovely and our seats (mezz, row C) were great.
We visited to see THE BANDS VISIT - normally i go to see musical theatre to be entertained - i...More
I feel asleep. This was gong nowhere. Not much of a plot. Not much relationship building. The points that could have been accentuated were short and uneventful. The play was right when it says “there was an event you probably didn’t hear about because it...More
About 2O people walked out early and I wish I had also left earlier! This show was awful. 10 Tony awards - what a joke. All I can say is we got third string crew because this was the worst show I have seen on...More
This beautiful theater was built in 1928 specifically for Ethel Barrymore of the then famous Barrymore acting dynasty. It has been majestically restored and maintained. There is not a bad seat in the house.
The current show is “The Band’s Visit. It’s a lovely musical...More

If you see one show in New York, see the Bands Visit at the Barrymore theater. It was fabulous. The show was funny, music was great and just a really nice atmosphere. The theater itself is something you see in the movies. Bathrooms are downstairs...More
We saw “A Band's Visit”. This is a lovely show that rightfully deserves its Tony nomination.
Although our seats were far away from the stage, we still enjoyed the good view and excellent acoustics. The staff is friendly and helpful. Enjoy!
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.
