Broadway Theater Tour: Harvey Theater (BAM)

Address: 651 Fulton Street, Brooklyn
Seating capacity: 874 (small), with one balcony
Currently playing: (Various)
Notable for: Although the seating capacity is less than your average Broadway theater, productions here tend to have an epic feel to them; theater is distinguished by a steeply raked auditorium with notoriously uncomfortable seating in the balcony; theater is also noted for its stripped, bohemian decor

What I've seen at this theater:
-"Othello" presented by Cheek by Jowl (2004): ***
-"Macbeth" with Patrick Stewart (2008): ****
