NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: The Beacon Theatre is an historic, 2,894-seat, three-tiered theater widely regarded as one of the best entertainment venues in New York City. Originally built in 1929 as a movie palace, this small, highly popular theater now hosts performances by the hottest acts in comedy and music.

Why We Go: The Beacon Theatre NYC is a fixture in Manhattan's Upper West Side. A recent addition to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, this famous NYC theater is bound to impress you with its regal charm and opulence.

  • Legendary Performers: Among those who are expected to perform at the Beacon Theatre in the coming months are Gladys Knight, Paul Simon, Chelsea Handler, Elvis Costello, and Peter Frampton.
  • Outstanding Acoustics: Undoubtedly the best thing about the Beacon Theatre NYC is the acoustics. No matter where you're sitting, you'll feel completely immersed in the music, as if you're discovering it for the first time. There's no other venue this size that can compare. Like the saying goes, they don't make 'em like they used to.
  • Prestige: The Beacon Theatre is so renowned that it has been selected to host the 65th Tony Awards in 2011. This historic venue also hosted the 10th-anniversary special of Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

Inside Knowledge: Between 1989 and 2009, the Allman Brothers Band performed 190 shows at the Beacon Theatre NYC. Their sell-out concerts attracted fans from all over the country.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Stay at Hotel Beacon: If you want to make the most of your trip to Manhattan, book a room at the Hotel Beacon NYC. This moderately priced but high-class hotel is perfect for those travelers who want to stay in the heart of New York City without breaking their budget.
  • Do Arrive Early: The Beacon Theatre was originally built for motion pictures and vaudeville, so all seating is fixed. We recommend arriving early so that you can find your seat easily, without disturbing other concertgoers.
  • Don't Forget Binoculars: While the size of the Beacon Theatre is such that you really don't need binoculars, we recommend bringing a pair, especially if you're sitting on the balcony. You'll be glad you have them, just in case.
  • Don't Bring the Kids: While children are welcome at the Beacon Theatre NYC, we would advise you against bringing them, as they might get restless seated for an hour or more.
