239 W 45th St
I saw the matinee of _Jerusalem_ today (7/24), and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the acting and staging of the show itself. Unfortunately, our experience was marred by the lack of organization and rudeness of the employees at the Music Box Theater. I see a lot dance, music, and theater performances in the city, and I have never seen such poor organization. Rather than either handing out programs at the top of the aisle and then pointing the way to seat (as at St. Ann's or PS1), or having several ushers per aisle to show audience members directly to seats (as at Lincoln Center), the Music Box had one usher per aisle walking attendees to seats, which meant that others had to wait at the top of the aisle to be seated (I waited a full ten minutes while others cut in front of me and, running into the usher halfway up the aisle, were seated ahead of me). When I tried to simply seat myself by picking up a program from the pile on the floor and heading directly to my seat, a very rude little usher insisted that I would have to go to the other row and wait until that usher was available to seat me. Furthermore, he insisted that I return the program that I had picked up from the floor, falsely claiming that there were just enough for the number of seats (at the end of the performances, there were several piles of programs left). This usher was utterly inappropriate and disrespectful, raising his voice and rolling his eyes at me. I do not come to plays to be insulted by surly young men, nor do I enjoy standing in the aisle because the theater has neither hired enough ushers nor allowed audiences to seat themselves. I understand that many Broadway customers are tourists, and that management is therefore more concerned to sell water and chocolates than to provide a professional and enjoyable experience that will bring repeat business. But this lack of professionalism was shocking even for Broadway, and I certainly hope that someone will do something to correct it. I for one will avoid the Music Box theater in the future, and will warn all friends and out-of-town guests to avoid this venue at all costs and to attend plays at places that will treat them with kindness and respect.

Excited about this new venue and seeing my favorite band, Wednesday 13 there, I didn't even question the $50 price of tickets, which turned out to have a face value of 14! Blender theater-dot-com actually takes you to a site that lists many NYC venues, it's not run by the theater. To be balanced, it does say you are paying more than the face value, but they don't list the face value, and over 3 times the face value is a bit much for a show that wasn't sold out; Live Nation has tix for $14 (i found out too late)! Blender Theater should stop using the site New York City Theatre, they are scalpers who cheat fans and artists.

When I started with QT!, I wanted to get something out of it that would help me re-shape my quiet persona. Well, I got more than I ever imagined I would out of your class. And that is really attributed to your ability as a teacher who understands the art of building people up. I see it week in and week out, and that's why I kept coming back. I kept learning from you in a really great environment. And as I started to get it, I tried to help out others as well so that they could experience the same lightbulb go off that happened for me. I'm really glad that we've had some very memorable improv experiences together, both inside and out of class. I will definitely keep in touch, as I'm not done with Improv! A very sincere thank you for getting me started on this journey, John. I'll be good to the art. To all who are on the fence about taking an Improv class, take John's class. I was just as afraid as you are, and I went above and beyond my limiting beliefs to conquer them and feel what it is like to have another, more open mindset towards your own fears. Get out there, take the risks, and laugh! It'll be the highlight of your work week, trust me!

Went there on a Tuesday night and was pleasantly surprised to catch the group Brasil Live with the most amazing Brazilian singers I've ever seen. This Brazilian band is made up of the best pros in NY and they play all the cool Brazilian music hits by my favorite artists. Seu Jorge, Ivete, Sangalo, Tim Maia, Jorge Benjor... you name it, they have on their repertoire. The energy is so high up there, people can't help it but to stand up, dance and party all night. The Village Underground is located right across the street from the Blue Note on West 3rd street so it's right in the middle of Village and super easy to get to. I was staying at the Hostelling International uptown Manhattan and it was a quick subway ride home. I highly recommend going there on a Tuesday night for an amazing night of Brazilian music fun.

The place is like a grand ballroom with lots of space and choices, the staff are extremely courteous . And it's in the heart of times square!
Went to see the lion king. Wonderful and first play to see on Broadway. Worth the price. Won't be disappointed!

We went to the show with my birthday party, and it was almost a perfect evening. Doors open about 45 mins before the show starts, so good to get there a bit early. We came early and ordered drinks and food. The West Bank Cafe has been in business over 30 years. And I saw Lewis Black at the bar! Rumored that he's one of the owners. Ok, back to the show....excellent mix of burlesque, humorous performances somewhat in the style of performance art meets burlesque, musicians and risque singers, sword swallower, contortionist lady....all acts performed in a sexy yet humorous style. I liked the originality of the acts. My sister who coordinated the party, loved that all of this could be arranged by the producer of the show, making it all run smoothly.

I stopped by FatBaby for the first time last Wednesday to check out the scene. I was told that a great band plays every Wednesday night, and as a music blogger, I just needed to check things out. I was extremely impressed. FatBaby has a great vibe, seemingly bringing the NYC lounge and indie music scene to one place. The lights were dim, booths were full, and the music was original, the only kind of music I wanna hear these days. I will be back here again.
14.Chicago City Limits
318 W 53rd St
I saw a recent CCL show with a large group of people, ranging in age from 11 to 55...EVERYONE LOVED IT! \r The performers were incredibly sharp, witty and professional....the venue was small, so everyone in the audience had the opportunity to participate. I could not believe the level of entertainment we got for such a reasonable price...beats anything else we've done in months.
15.Upright Citizens Brigade Theater
266 W 37th St
i discovered the ucb one day through i believe the village voice over a year ago.\r and i know it's been around a lot longer, but i'm in love with the place.\r they have tons of free or low cost shows, classes, awesome staff, easily accessible location, hilarious people (serious) & certain shows anyone can go up by just leaving their name at the counter & be randomly chosen to do so. it's the best.\r my favorite show personally is Gutbucket (which is a monthly show at 12 AM Fridays, usually the 2nd one of the month, but it's different sometimes..)\r anyway, if you've never been before, this show is great.\r the hosts are funny even if the randomly picked crew isn't, but i've NEVER been disappointed.\r plus they have cheap beer or wine if you so please!

Saw Citizen Cope last night who sounds pretty sick live however never addressed the crowd. You could tell he just wanted to play and bounce back to his BK crib and spend time at home. He still plays great music. The Terminal 5 venue is a great place to see a non main stream group. Yes you have to hang over the rail on the upper floors or you cant see anything, but if you can get a good spot you get a great view. Drinks were priced right which was pleasant and no one really minds if fools burn trees. I will keep this place on my radar and if anyone of interest ever plays there I will for sure roll back.

I have been to these theatres and rehearsal spaces and cannot stop praising those spaces. I love the fact that it is not only in the best location, but it has great studios and theatres at affordable prices. \r \r I love the personal attention and the whole atmosphere.
18.Regal E-Walk Stadium 13 & RPX
247 W 42nd St
I do not understand the problem all of the other users have had with this theater. The seats are extremely comfortable and spacious. The popcorn is very good, the screens are large, and the theater has wonderful sound. The only problems are that the bathrooms aren't sufficient to the amount of people who see movies at this theater, the gum on seats, and the excessive chatter...but, hey, that's all part of the fun.

Have not gone their in a while and was pleasantly surprised last week by a completely new restaurant. Great new ambiance, music, menu and attitude. Had the stripped bass, and my wife the veal meatballs, best she had ever had. Looks like the place is under new management.

I've lived in New York City so long that I remember when the Quad had small screens. The Quad never changed but everyone else downscaled. The Quad is known for obscure and usually interesting films. The place has always seemed a bit shabby but I have always liked and supported it. NYC needs more theaters like this one.
21.P S 122
150 1st Ave
My husband discovered this venue a few years ago and we have grown to love it so much- we even became members this year. The performance space offers a wonderful selection of avant garde plays. PS 122 is reasonably priced (an inexpensive alternative to Broadway) and each of their plays are insightful. I always leave a show with lots to talk and think about. PS 122 also has an art gallery with changing exhibitions.

We took our kids to this show a couple of years ago and were blown away!! The set, acting, singing, dancing, lights, everything was awesome! One of the best shows I've ever seen!
23.Ujamaa Black Theater Titus Wal
303 W 42nd St
It is definitely a theater in the Times Square area that actually is helping educate and artistically assisting all progress to excellence in their talent. They will be put on stage and their craft will be sharpened with each rehearsal and preformance. It is open to all ethenicities.

He will be carrying on this legacy! 212-642-8261 Call to set up an audition! Call to hear when the next performance is scheduled. Just call.

They've moved. The new address is the Times Square Arts Center-300 West 43rd Street-8th & 9th Avenues.

Cinema Village chooses great films, and shows them in an arena of comfort and almost ridiculous proximity to Brendon Blake's apartment.
25.I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change
407 W 43rd St
I loved this show! It is about interactions between men and women at different stages of life. It is such a funny musical, and the lyrics are amazing. I could not stop laughing. I highly recommend this play. There is so much to relate to, and it has something for all ages - single, married, married with kids, and old. But it is not for kids, since it has stuff that maybe inappropriate. Go watch it!
323 Avenue Of The Americas
This theater is a great place to watch some great independant films as well as classics. Great place for dates as well. IFC has a good thing going!
27.Rattlestick Playwrights Theater
224 Waverly Pl
I found their 2001 tribute to playwright Harry Kondoleon enormously eye-opening--the appearance of the brilliant Amy Sedaris (along with Martha Plimpton) in ""Play Yourself"" turned me onto it. ""Saved or Destroyed"" was also an excellent production.

I have seen three productions at Axis Theatre now and I can report that the production quality is first rate, the space is incredible, and the artistry is unique. Though the experimental aspects of the original productions are challenging, I think the Axis Company is on to something. I look forward to the next installment of Hospital (a quirky serial that returns annually) and hope the company will again mount something like Crave, which, though not an Axis original, was interpreted brilliantly by director Randy Sharp. He is a talent that more New Yorkers need to experience.

I have only seen about four show at the theater, not including the street theater last summer. I must say the price up pay to watch a show does not compare to talent you will see. And not to mention the great people you will meet ......... Thanks to Primy and all his friends for making a Jersey boy feel comfortable.

I'm at the Metropolitan Room often and I love the shows. They're all good, no matter who's there every night. The food is delish too. All I can say is that it NYC entertainment rolled up into one awesome experience. Last time we were there, we were served by Jasmine who was great. Got us the drinks quickly and always with a smile. Just go there, you'll see.
