Театр «Аполло» (буквально, «Аполлон») — концертный зал в манхэттенском квартале Гарлем, сыгравший значительную роль в развитии афроамериканской (негритянской) музыкальной культуры. Включён в Национальный регистр исторических мест.
Мне очень понравилось место. Колоритно. Театр это буквально памятник черной, джазовой американской культуры, но при этом без лишнего снобизма. Ряды спроектированы так, что даже с самого верхнего этажа отлично видно сцену. Must see в Гарлеме.
Beautiful place. Clean and well taken care of. The have an elevator for the handicapped or disabled. They have coat check and bag check for large items. The seating was cool the place is much smaller in person then on TV. There's a bar on every floor which was great. Bathrooms were very nice and clean and there's just so much history there it was amazing. I can't wait to go back!!!
Great shows. If your going to a show that's for studio audience where you see live performances televised be patient. If your not extremely early there will be a line going around the corner to venue. They will hand tickets as you wait on the line. You must have an invitation in order to have a free ticket. Use the bathroom before seating it's going to be hard if your in the middle of rows going in and out. Easy to get to by train or bus. Driving can be insane it's meter parking. Parking lots are in the area but not any. Best bet get a Uber/cab/taxi. They do have paid shows that are usually awesome. Small bathrooms. So go when you know no one else will. Enjoy!
Absolutely wonderful entertainment. The building is gorgeous from the inside. We got late seats and sat in the very last row, on the right. No need to worry! The sound and line of vision was perfect! The show was hysterical. I don't live in America, but the humour is light and witty and appeals to all. I also love that you buy your drinks inside - credit cards accepted! The ushers are also feisty characters and start getting you in the festive mood from the get-go. If I lived nearby, I would try and go at least once a month!
The legendary Apollo Theater has not lost its importance. I've seen so many wonderful shows here from independent artists to Oprah. The yearly Kwanzaa festival is always heart-warming, Amateur night is an interesting experience, and the Apollo Music Cafe has some great smaller acts as well. As a tall woman, I struggle a bit with the lack of leg room in the balcony seating and even more so with the lack of ANY room in the balcony restroom stalls. But even that's not enough to make me want to give less than 5 stars.
