    We went to the Barry Manilow concert and it was awesome. If you visit NYC then you must make a point to see this venue. If you live in the city then you know all about it.

    Great venue to host events such as a graduation. Ambiance is great and it’s huge with lots of great places to take pictures.

    We went for the Jazz Holiday Concert. I had never been. The venue was great and the concert was terrific. View was good from seats on the floor level in the rear. Easy in/out. Did not realize that Rose Hall was attached to a shopping center on Columbus Circle. We dined at one of the restaurant in the shopping center on the 4th floor. Reservations are a must. Note that there are various restrooms in the venue, so if you see a line, look around for another one, perhaps on an upper floor.

    This was our first Broadway show and what a first experience it was!

    We absolutely loved it, the staff was super helpful and kind, the theater itself is gorgeous, the seats are really comfortable and the atmosphere was amazing!

    We saw The Music Man and it was wonderful! The cast is incredibly talented and the play itself was great and really entertaining.
    Plus, me being a Hugh Jackman fan, made the experience even more exciting!

    And lastly I want to add, that I was able to meet and take a pic with Hugh while he was entering the theater and wow! Such a class act, he was super kind to everyone and stopped to talk and take pictures with fans.

    Went to go see Moulin Rouge. The price tag is pretty hefty unless you book in advance (more than I've ever paid in my 20 years of theatre!). The set design is stunning and production values in general were insane. Easily one of the better musicals I've seen. I sat on the balcony (4th row, left-centralish), and the seats were extremely comfortable, though legroom was very limited. I am 5'3 and I could not comfortable cross my legs, but did fit sitting normally. Others around me had their knees up the next seat. View was surprisingly good and close. As others have said, it's not a very large theatre and the rake is good. Didn't even have to lean forward for more than a few bits in the front walkway, which wasn't much. Some of the staff was a bit rude, I brash, I thought, but luckily the angry man wasn't there for the interval. They tell you to not take photos before the start (probably because there's action), but it's fine in the interval. Annoyingly, the theatre sells iced drinks, so if you're unlucky like me and get sat between two people with drinks, the ice rattle does get annoying real quick.

    Tip: Deal directly with the box office to purchase tickets.
    The box office clerk was wonderful. She offered me a great ticket option (orchestra center, row C, seat 112). The leg room was great and I experienced MJ as I could never have imagined. It was nice being up front, seeing the action on stage and feeling the rhythm of the music.

    My 20 something daughter, her Boyfriend and my best friend all attended a show here. Our seats were the in the 2nd last row. (Still good seats btw). I had booked the tickets not knowing that my friend had become terrified of heights. She was very anxious. We spoke with one of the staff (Brett). She was awesome! She was able to get us moved to some empty seats that were down a level which made my friend feel so much more comfortable. I don't think she could have stayed in the theatre otherwise.
    It was a fantastic experience. Thank you so much to Brett and her supervisor for making our day!

    The studio is beautiful, very eclectic, preserves the atmosphere and over the top decor of the club, but works surprisingly well as a theater.
    The stage is fully visible from any seat, the theater is airy with high ceilings and open spaces, the seating is very comfortable and the experience is almost interactive with stage and audience in such proximity.
    The club environment clashes a bit with minimalistic staging of some plays, but it only adds to the charm in my opinion.

    The Hamilton show was amazing. My daughter really learned a lot. I personally hate color blind casting, but this was truly a great experience for a teen. The threate is old, and intermission/bathroom break is challenging. I did like how the drinks came in a cute reusable cup. Which makes a great souvenir.
