Astor Place Theatre
Located in Manhattan’s East Village since 1968, Astor Place Theatre opened with The Indian Wants the Bronx starring a then little-known actor named Al Pacino. Over the years, the theater gained a reputation for experimental productions. Since 1991 it has been the home of the Blue Man Group, which purchased the theater in 2001.

The Basics
You can admire the handsome architecture of the theater on a guided walking tour of the East Village—these tours introduce visitors to the must-see spots in this historic cultural melting pot and often include food tastings. The Astor Place Theatre is, of course, best known for the Blue Man Group. As the show is highly popular, it's best to buy your ticket in advance to ensure you get the best price and your pick of seating.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Astor Theatre is a must-visit for lovers of the theatrical arts.
  • The production is suitable for families, but children under 3 are not permitted.
  • Note that the production uses strobe lights in the show.
  • The theater does not have a dress code.

How to Get There

Located in the heart of Manhattan’s East VIllage, Astor Place Theatre is easy to get to by public transportation. Subway riders can take the N, Q, R, or W to 8th Street or the 6 to Astor Place, both a minute’s walk away. Or, take the B, D, F, or M to Broadway-Lafayette, a 7-minute walk.

When to Get There
Typically there is an evening performance on Monday through Sunday, with additional matinee performances on Saturday and Sunday. Theater doors open 30 minutes before show time, and it is recommended you arrive at least 15 minutes before curtain. Large groups should plan to arrive earlier.

Colonnade Row
Astor Place Theatre is located on the historic Colonnade Row, originally constructed in the early 1830s as a series of nine connected row houses, of which only four remain. Designed in Greek Revival style and fronted by Corinthian columns made of marble, the buildings were residences of the Astor and Vanderbilt families and considered the most fashionable in the city. They were designated as New York City landmarks in 1963.
Address: 434 Lafayette St, New York City, New York NY 10003, USA

Very good show for children particularly, the theatre is a little way out and requires taxi or a long walk. The position of the seats were good and this was the first time Ive been impressed with Viator.

This show was a lot of fun. I took my boys because they had never seen it before. Our seats were in a great location. It is a bit repetitive if you have already seen it.

Spectacle excellent mais très déçus par nos places. Nous avions réservé 4 places parents et 2 enfants mais nous sommes retrouvés 3 à un rang et un derrière. L'idée était de partager ce moment ensemble pour notre premier voyage à New York, surtout à plus de 70 la place... Nous conseillons d'aller voir le Blue Man Group mais attention à pouvoir choisir vos numéros de place.
