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

We recently attended The Little Foxes at MTC's Samuel J Friedman Theatre. What a wonderful little gem of a space. It has surprisingly spacious lobbies for a New York theatre, and just enough leg room in the seats. The restrooms are easy to find and...More

Obviously, the play's the thing -- but every play I've seen here (most recent was Incognito) has been great. It's a non-profit theater, so the mission is more than let's fill the seats with trendy musicals or Hollywood stars. This is a place for serious...More

OMG I am so glad I went and spent an hour and half, seeing this remarkably funny and sad play starring the wonderful legendary Frank Lagella, without giving too much away it is so good, it is well worth a look. Theater itself is pretty...More

I never thought dementia could be the least bit humorous but Linda Lavin and the cast of my mother's brief affair pulled it off. The dialogue was clever, witty and very funny! The cast was wonderful and the play was really well written. It left...More

Many theater critics have been trashing David Mamet's new play, China Doll, with Al Pacino playing the lead. The reviews have been so negative that my wife and I thought about giving our tickets away. Thank goodness we did not. Pacino spends almost 2 hours...More

I really wanted to see Sam Rockwell in this play. Of course, if one buys a bargain ticket, bargain is the operative word. Although I must admit a good full-priced ticket was out of my range. The play was very good. On my next trip...More
