They really knew how to build theaters back in the 1920s: Every seat at this Art Deco landmark has a good view, and the acoustics are remarkable. Which may be why this is such a favorite of the touring bands who make this their New York home. While you won’t get the mega-names, you will see talented stars either on the way up or down, names such as Tedeschi Trucks Band, Sheryl Crow, Ringo Starr, comedian Jerry Seinfeld, and Pat Metheny. Prices vary widely by show and seat.
