Broadway Theater Tour: Hilton Theater

Address: 213 West 42nd Street
Seating capacity: 1,813 (large), with two balconies
Currently playing: "Young Frankenstein"
Notable for: This is a modern theater designed in the old-school theater design mode; it's suitable for spectacular musicals and is notable for it's large orchestra level and two relatively small balconies

What I've seen at this theater:
-"Ragtime" directed by Frank Galati (1999, saw twice): ***1/2
-"42nd Street" (2002): ***
-"How the Grinch Stole Christmas" directed by Jack O'Brien (2006): **1/2
-"Young Frankenstein" with Roger Bart (2007): **1/2
