This theater has been renamed The Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, apparently after a well known Broadway publicist. It is a smaller theater that has been restored and is very attractive. This was the first time that my seat was in the balcony, 2nd row. My...More

We attended The Children by Lucy Kirkwood at The Samuel Friedman Theatre. I enjoyed the play, but I oddly did not really like any of the characters. Maybe Hazel… In the end, maybe it gives the whole sorry lot a chance to redeem themselves. The...More

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.

The Samuel J. Friedman Theatre which is the home of the MTC is an excellent venue for their current offering, "The Children" which is an English play originally shown at London's Royal Court Theatre. This play has come to New York with its original cast...More

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

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
