I'd say the Ambassador is not very desirable at all, hosting a string of shows that for the most part didn't run. Having Chicago there is the best thing that ever happened to that theatre. The shallow house and wide stage make it, for me, not a place I long to see shows. The Minskoff is another terrible house. I'd be thrilled to never have to see anything in there again. The Majestic IS a beautiful gem---although can have sighline problems if you are sitting in the raked part of the orchestra that is below the overhand of the mezz/balc. I also have a soft spot for Phanotm and don't long to see it close permanently in NY. And even more so now that so many of the new musicals waiting in the wings are (seemingly) uninspired movie adaptations and jukebox musicals. (and just so we don't have to go there, yes I acknowledge there are excellent musicals based on movies and even some based on pop catalogues, but for the most part the newer ones seem more attuned to cashing in on a brand than anyting else)
