Getting into the Venue

The Neil Simon Theatre is accessible step-free from street level to the lobby and Orchestra at 250 West 52nd Street.

Step-free access is available to seven wheelchair designated seats in rows U and V of the Orchestra, with companion spaces in adjacent seats. A further eight transfer seats are on aisles across rows G, J, P and S.

Six transfer seats are located in the Mezzanine, although this section is accessible by stairs only, so may be unsuitable for patrons with very limited mobility. Handrails are available on stepped rows in the Mezzanine.

There are no elevators or escalators at this venue.

Customer Assistance

Theatre representatives can meet patrons in the lobby and escort them to their seats, although it is advisable to bring a companion where possible.

A wheelchair accessible unisex restroom is located on the Orchestra level. Other restrooms are up one flight of stairs in the Mezzanine, and in the lower lounge, one flight down from Orchestra level. These are not wheelchair accessible, but wide stalls are available.

There is no coat check at the Neil Simon Theatre, so any extra luggage may not be admitted.
