A “What’s Doing” article in Newsday alerted us to a concert at the Madison Theater at Molloy College.  Peter Nero is an 81 year young, Grammy Award winning jazz pianist who, accompanied only by his bassist, gave us an incredible two hours of Gershwin music, plus some entertaining discourse.


The Theater is located on the campus of Molloy College in “The Public Square” Building. We parked in the large, paved lot close by.  Several handicapped spaces are located close to the walkway.


We entered the street level lobby through two sets of doors, which are equippped with push button assists.


The theater is located in the commons of the college. We were able to sit at one of the many tables and chairs in this area while waiting for the theater to open. Multi-stall, handicapped-accessible restrooms are located here.


A small bar with drinks and snacks was set up to the left ofs leading to the theater itself. 


There is easy access to the back of the orchestra section.  An elevator goese to the balcony as well as to the lower section of the orchestra.


We took note of the steep steps down to our row. “s” due to the stadium style seating that allows a great view no matter who is sitting in front of you.  Wheelchair seating is available at the back of the orchestra section as well as at the front.


Front orchestra seating doesn’t require steps. -rows A – E. These seats can be accessed by taking the elevator down tothe lower  level.  You might want to call and speak with someone at the box office before choosing seats.


We found the seats comfortable, the view excellent, and the performance amazing !  We look forward to another performance at this venue.


As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, www.madisontheater.org, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
