We visited during a family trip to NY and attended Waitress. The Brooks Atkinson Theatre was a pleasant surprise. I do not think someone could have a bad seat in the house as it is a smaller venue. We enjoyed the show immensely and the...More

Loved the building, the velvet curtains, the whole atmosphere. Staff very helpful and friendly. Bathrooms and bar are upstairs and had enough staff to keep things moving. The show, Waitress, was so good. Acoustics were great, seats were comfortable.

Every seat is excellent. Don’t worry about your seat location. This theatre is smaller than most, which is a GOOD THING. There’s one bathroom for men and one for women. I recommend women bolt from their seat immediately as the intermission curtain comes down. The...More

Recently saw “The Waitress” here, we really liked this venue. The employees were good at controlling the crowds coming and going and during intermission. Bathrooms were not ideal but not as bad as some other broadway venues. Nice Victorian ambiance inside and seating was not...More

Saw Waitress and absolutely loved it! Theatre small and nothing spectacular, but not bad. Just an average theatre, but having only one bathroom a nightmare. I didn’t get to use the bathroom during intermission. I saw a lot of people drinking the over priced wine,...More

This was an awesome theatre for my daughter and I to experience our first Broadway show. We showed up an hour early for Waitress and were super excited. It was a little disappointing to find out that they were not going to open the doors...More

Although we enjoyed seeing Waitress, none of us loved it. Didn't appreciate it starting 15 minutes late either. We found the seats to be cramped leg wise. Your knees (and we aren't tall) were pretty close to the seats in front of us. Advice: Bring...More

Smaller Broadway theater that brought you close to the stage no matter the location. The sound was very good and voices easily heard over the pit which was below stage. Parking right across the street was easy and typical pricing $$$. Only thing which is...More

My family saw a show here recently and enjoyed it very much. The show was wonderful and the staff was very friendly. Would like to see another show here sometime again.
