This theatre is thriving due to excellent choices for shows at good prices. The one way streets can make parking a little tricky but there is a lot across the street. Just be sure to get there early because it fills quickly.

I last saw 42nd Street at the Fulton 10 years ago and enjoyed it, but this season's performance is over the top! If you haven't seen it yet, get moving! The dancing is fabulous, the voices good and characters endearing.

The Fulton always offers top quality shows, with both great local talent and cast members from Broadway. The building is a beautiful 19th century theater, complete with cherubs and gold leaf finishes. But the productions are definitely to today's highest standards, and include a live...More
