The Minskoff Theatre has hosted many classic Broadway shows, including; the original West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof and The Lion King. Because of its history and its whimsical exterior design, this theatre is ranked highly, in the No. 6 position on this Best Broadway Theatres list. The Minskoff Theatre is known for its iconic outdoor theatre entrance area, that has black columns with yellow glowing lights that light up the entire theatre entrance in a one-of-a-kind way. The concession area of the theatre is the largest out of all the Broadway theatres and has friendly sales people who work in it. The stage of the theatre itself is large but quite standard looking, with little to no designs or decorative features that make it stand out, which gives the productions a lot of creative freedom. The theatre seats are adequate but, old and could use an update and there is only one balcony seating section for the audience to sit in, despite the large size of the theatre.
