Interesting premise but I could not understand much of the dialogue. Maybe it's me. Noone laughed anywhere near me. Some people in the orchestra got some of the jokes and must have understood what was being said. Ditto for my wife who has much better...More

The seats have a good amount of legroom, particularly when compared to older Broadway theaters. The doors open a little earlier than most Broadway theaters, allowing attendees an opportunity to use the restroom without a long last-minute line. The staff is helpful.

Well-acted and the actors were gracious enough to come out for a moderated Q&A after ther performance. Difficult subject matter but a good complement to Pride Month and Juneteenth. The theater was cozy. I liked it.

We recently attended a showing of "The Portuguese Kid" at this venue and it was really nice. It's a smaller theatre which lended itself well to the show and viewing was easy and comfortable.

We recently attended "PRINCE OF BROADWAY" presented by the Manhattan Theatre Club. It was wonderful! The cast had amazing voices and the theatre is small and inviting. I highly recommend this show.

Just to avoid confusion, this theater is now renamed The Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. It is a smaller theater than most on Broadway and has a warm and intimate atmosphere. I sat in the second row Orchestra and my view of the stage was wonderful...More

Just returned from seeing The Little Foxes, the great revival of probably Hellman's best play. The cast was staggeringly good, with special kudos to Cynthia Nixon, Laura Linney, Michael Mc Lean and Richard Thomas. As a subscriber/patron I've enjoyed every single show I've attended. One...More
