Charlie and the chocolate Factory is a very good show for old and young. The Hippodrome, however, was renovated for folks 5foot 5 inches tall. Seats are narrow and low. My better half is 5 foot 2 inches and was very comfy. I'm 6 foot...More

I've had season tickets to the Broadway series since 2008. Always an enjoyable experience, even if the play wasn't to my taste. Just NEVER eat at the Hipp café.

We've been going to the Hippodrome for over 2 years now that we have more leisure time. The shows are reasonable and varied mostly musicals from the Broadway tradition.
