New Amsterdam Theatre Tours

If you love Disney and Broadway, then the New Amsterdam Theatre might be your little slice of heaven in Manhattan. The narrow Beaux-Arts building, around the corner from iconic Times Square, is home to Disney Theatrical Productions — featuring live, colorful, loud, and showy versions of Walt Disney’s silver screen classics. Though the building was one of the Theater District’s earliest venues, first opened in the early 1900s, the ornate interior detailing — wall frescoes, cupped box seats and finely detailed ceiling fixtures — are mostly new or restored since Disney took over the historic playhouse in 1995.

Choose your vantage from among the 1,702 seats, arrayed in three levels — orchestra, mezzanine, and balcony (including boxes) — all with good sight lines, but beware that some find the seats too narrow and the theater chillier than other Broadway venues. The New Amsterdam recently hosted productions of the Lion King, Marry Poppins, as well as various benefits and concerts. It is currently selling tickets for its glitzy rendition of Aladdin, featuring familiar and new music not included in the animated version.

Practical Info

The New Amsterdam Theatre is located at 214 West 42nd Street, between Seventh and Eighth Avenues in the Theater District of Manhattan. The box office, on the lower floor of the theatre is open Monday through Friday 9am-8pm, Saturday from 10am -8pm and Sunday 10am-6:30pm. Shows run at least once a day between Tuesday and Sunday and ticket prices vary based on show time (weeknights tend to be cheaper than weekends) and seats selected. Shows run about 2 hours and 45 minutes with a 15-minute intermission. Children under four and recording devices of any kind are not permitted inside the theatre.
