Daryl Roth Theatre is a small, intimate Off-Broadway venue with just one level of seating, the Orchestra. In the Orchestra, the front two rows wrap around the stage on three sides and are surrounded by a runway for an immersive experience. The other rows are behind the runway, facing head-on to the stage.
The size and layout of this theater mean that the view from seat is excellent from every seat. If you want to be in the midst of the action - and maybe even part of it - sit inside the runway, but you can still enjoy the show with no obstructions from the back of the auditorium.
Since opening in 1998, the Daryl Roth Theatre in New York has made its name as a home for unconventional hits Off-Broadway. With an extensive history hidden in the historic building’s walls, this is an exciting example of NYC’s skill for reimagining traditional spaces into hubs of creativity.
The 19th-century Union Square Savings Bank building was acquired by theatrical producer Daryl Roth in 1996, who could see a clear future for it as an Off-Broadway theater. It has played host to a number of successful yet unorthodox shows including De La Guarda and Fuerza Bruta. These two Argentinian circus and postmodern theater acts played at the theater for a combined 14 years.
The Daryl Roth Theatre’s unique but simple auditorium is a compelling modern contrast to the building’s grand exterior, characterized by Corinthian columns and Greco-Roman-inspired design. With an eclectic range of shows ushered through its doors, this bank-turned-buzzing performance space has proven its versatility as a major Off-Broadway venue.

Good Value Seats
Rows P-R at the back of the auditorium promise a great view from seat for less, with no obstructions in your eyeline. Most tickets in these rows are a similar price so aim to sit as centrally as possible for the best value seats.
The best views in Daryl Roth Theatre are from the center of Rows D - F; these seats are the perfect distance from the stage to see all the action unfold. If you want to get totally immersed, the best seats are in Rows A and B, where the actors perform all around you on the stage and runway.
