We were fortunate enough to attend the 80th anniversary of Benny Goodman's Concert at Carnegie Hall recently. This theatre is an excellent venue, with good shows and favorable pricing.

Historical play house. Doesn't offer a lot, but puts on good local shows. Bathrooms are small, but just got redone.

In shows I’ve attended most seats were pre-sold. Check by calling if a specific show is sold out. If not the box office there will be able to accommodate you.
