Have seen many musicals at theatres, but this one was truly amazing. Aladdin is great fun for children and adults. Although i originally thought tickets were expensive at £109 I would gladly pay this again. The seats were very good in the Orchestra section, drinks were excessively expensive at $91 for 2 beers and 5 colas. The cast were very... More

For my 2nd year anniversary, I bought tickets for us to see ALADDIN. The employees were extremely helpful and kind. The theatre seats are extremely close so be sure to choose your seating appropriately. My partner is 6'8" so I have to purchase aisle seats. Over all, the theatre is great and the show was outstanding. If you are a... More

Went to see aladdin in this lovely theatre, had a good seat on the edge of the mezzanine level (cheap seats) with a very good view. We were given a free program which I thought was a nice touch. Seats though we're a tad uncomfortable, a bit on the skimpy side. The show was brilliant! Amazing costumes.

The theater is good. Comfortable seats, and the temperature was good. A bit on the cold side like most. The staff are friendly and helpful. We saw Aladdin and loved it! Highly recommend!

Saw Aladdin with the family. Lovely ornate theatre and just the right size. Loved the feeling of a bit of history in this building. Comfy seats but taller guests might have a slight issue. Good sight lines. Show was great. Genie was the show stealer, but great performances all around. Would definitely recommend.

Came to see Aladdin. The theater is an ornate beauty. Site line are great, and you feel very close to the stage. The only knock is, as with so many theaters this age, legroom in the balconies can be a bit tight. But, a great place to see a show.

We were here to see Aladdin and came away impressed with the theatre as well. The seats were somewhat larger than other theatres. The theatre is very ornate. The viewing area seems larger than many others as well. Despite being in the middle of everything there is an abundance of parking garages in the area as well. We would absolutely... More

Me and my partner visited the New Amsterdam theatre to watch Aladdin whilst on a city break in New York. The broadway musical was absolutely outstanding. The venue was stunning, and overall it was a fantastic experience. The drinks and snacks were slightly expensive, but it was expected. I would highly recommend tickets to watch a Broadway show here.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
