Jesus Christ, Superstar

The legendary musical Jesus Christ Superstar, a rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber, is once again playing on Broadway, to rave reviews, at the Neil Simon Theatre.

Words such as “exhilarating,” “electrifying,” “sensational” and “a musical wallop” are being liberally accorded to it by usually cynical NYC theater critics.

If you act now, you can get a discount on tickets of up to 40% off on tickets from now through June 17th.

With tickets in hand, you’ll then want to find the best place to enjoy brunch, lunch or dinner before the show.

If you’re really giving this some thought, you’re probably wondering how you can avoid the rushed, poorly served mediocrity that is associated with the words “pre-theater dinner” in NYC’s theater district. What will it be – a soulless franchise or a grossly over-priced, dated restaurant that was last worth a visit when Lindsay was Mayor?

May we suggest Tir na nOg, considered by many to be the best Irish pub in NYC?

If you’re catching a Sunday matinee, you’ll want to try the best brunch in NYC, with items such as Smoked Salmon Benedict. For a Wednesday matinee, you’ll want to try the classic comforts we offer at lunch, such as an Irish Cheddar Burger or our soup-salad-half sandwich combo. Lastly, for the evening shows, you’ll be hard-pressed to choose from the many delights on our dinner menu, such as Raw Blue Point Oysters, a Wild Mushroom Crepe and Sauteed Grouper.

If you’re coming into NYC on the LIRR or New Jersey Transit, we’re right across the street from Penn Station. If you’re driving from LI or NJ or Westchester, you’ll find our location at 33rd and 8th to be very convenient to the Midtown Tunnel, the Lincoln Tunnel, and West Side Highway. Avoid the chaos and expense of driving and parking in the theater district. Drop your car in a lot near us (check BestParking for options) and then take a ten-minute cab or subway ride to and from the theater (or, if you’re feeling hardy, a 20-minute walk).
