We saw the Girls and Boys play. A small theatre but I was comfortable in the center of the last row. Good acoustic, helpful staff. If you can, then purchase the tickets closer to the stage. The theatre is surrounded by the awesome vegan restaurants;...More

Small theater. We sat first row. Forget it. Way too close. You neck strains up the whole time so sit 5-7 rows back. Ample room in seat. The bathrooms are wholly inadequate. This is not an ornate Broadway theater, but rather a more intimate venue.

OK, Girls and Boys was great. Sat in first row of balcony, on the aisle. Not only are the sightlines tricky because of the railing in front, but the legroom is possibly the worst I've experienced. If you are over 5'8 you will struggle. If...More

A little gem of a theatre in the heart of the Village. Like with any theatre, be familiar with what show is in there before you purchase tickets.

Have seen many shows here over the years, most recently Harry Clarke. Not a bad seat in this intimate house. Amazing location in the village means so many wonderful pre- and post-show culinary options.

James Joyce is one serious writer. Ulysses is not light reading. I would never have thought that the musical would have lighter moments, or that there would be some delightful lyrics along with the thought provoking dialog. Nora and James were a couple very much...More

The seats were reasonably comfortable but like most theaters getting through the rows can be bothersome. The aisle is off center and does not split the theater in half...so keep that in mind if getting aisle seats. For the larger of the tow sections there...More

Beautiful theater in a beautiful location and very easy to get to from 4th street station. The production was unbelievable and even though I was exhausted from walking around the city all day....my eyes were glued to the stage. I was a little disappointed that...More

I went and saw The Nutcracker Rouge tonight and it was wonderful! The show was great and I really enjoyed it. The "Turkish Delight"....my favorite! But the Sugarplum Fairy dance was well choreographed. If you're looking for a risqué and fun version of the Nutcracker,...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
