Fodor's Review

Founded by suffragists and built in 1921 by famed architects McKim, Mead & White, The Town Hall has been part of NYC's cultural fabric for 95 years. Notable Town Hall claims include: Strauss, Stravinsky, and Isaac Stern's U.S. debuts; Marian Anderson's first NYC recital; Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker's introduction of bebop to the world; and Bob Dylan's first major concert. More recently, their stage has welcomed musicians like Gilberto Gil, Joan Baez, Patti Smith, and Ray LaMontagne; comedians like Stephen Colbert and Larry David; live radio broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor; TED Talks Live; and more.
