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.

The theater is small but nice. I didn't find the seats to be uncomfortable, like other theaters. I do feel that the theater can have more of a slope. I was beyond annoyed with the man sitting in front of me. Not only was he...More

Gorgeous theatre with all the classic touches. This was our first time seeing a show here, and we enjoyed it. Seats don't have a lot of leg room, but weren't too bad.

Make sure you get there early early early! We saw Sara Bareilles and Jason Mraz perform. The lines for the concession/bar and, far worse, the bathrooms, were shocking; I’ve never seen a place so crowded or a bathroom line so long! It certainly did not...More

This is a smaller sized theater. Not a lot of space for refreshments. Our seats were in the middle of the orchestra section. Because of the size of the theater, most of the seats have a good view of all of the stage. Because we...More

The Brooks Atkinson Theater is a Broadway theater located at 256 West 47th Street in Manhattan. It is a small quaint theater that feels intimate with the perfect seating arrangement. I have seen Rock of Ages, After Midnight, It Shoulda Been You and Waitress here.

Perfect size venue- almost all seats are great. Very long female bathroom lines so go very early or be 1st in line at intermission.
