I attended a performance of BEAUTIFUL with some friends. This was my first visit to the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. When we entered the theater, we found ourselves in the mezzanine. Our seats were in the center of the mezzanine and they were excellent. I'm not...More

The rating is for the theatre and not for the musical. ("Beautiful" was OK -- appreciated it for the story that it told and how well it was presented.) Stephen Sondheim Theatre is a more modern venue than other Broadway theatres that I have been...More

Saw “Beautiful” in this smallish theater off Broadway. We had seats in the 12th row Orchestra (1st floor) and thought they were perfect. Could see and hear everything. Was a little unusual in that you enter the theater on the mezzanine level (3rd floor) and...More

Stephen Sondheim Theater is a beautiful multi-leveled venue for Broadway shows. It seems that all seats, which are somewhat roomier than many Broadway theaters are closer to the stage for some reason. Modern decor, elevator service, bar area are all plusses. If there is any...More

Saw the show this past weekend. The theatre is interesting in that you go in at the mezzanine level and have to go down two levels to the orchestra section. We sat in row L on the right side and had no problems viewing and...More

This was one of the best Broadway shows I have ever seen. Carole King is more of a music legend that I originally thought. Wait to see all the songs that she wrote for other groups, and then goes on to set up her own...More

Have an opportunity to get front row seats--wondering if it is worth it? Or better off back from the stage a little?

Front row not necessary and would not even consider unless you are center; you will probably be looking up. If you are to the side, you want to be further back to have a better perspective of the stage; a better angle if... More
