The audience for this Showcase Live will consist of various industry people along with fans who have won the Japanese and American Contests.

The Japanese contest was for 5 winners and guest to be flown out to New York. That contest was from Feb 2nd to Feb 6th.

The American contest is for 25 winners and guest (possibly 10 more from the Utada E-team - if that was not a typo). American winners will have to arrange for their own travel and accommodations.

She'll probably be more than happy to greet you after the show, since I HIGHLY doubt she'll be mauled by a crowd... XD

Could this http://www.dannysgrandseapalace.com/skylight.htm be it?
Though I somehow doubt it...

Theres also:

New York, NY 10001-2321
Phone: (212) 244-0395

Skylight Social Club
129 E 124th St

Skylight Studios Inc
475 Park Ave S
New York, NY 10016-6901
Phone: (212) 689-2830

EDIT:
I believe it turned out to be
Skylight Studios

New York, NY
between Spring & Houston

From Kiriya's blog (kiriya.com/universe.tv):
2005年02月15日 - なんでこんなに時間が過ぎるのが早いのか?

あっという間に前回の書き込みから10日が過ぎてる。ウイリアムギブソンのニューロマンサーって言う本があって、サイバースペースにずっといて、現実に戻って来ても時間はほとんど経っていないというくだりがあるんだけど、全く逆じゃん!!  とにかく気がつくとあっという間に時間が過ぎているという感じです。 じゃ、何にそんなに忙しいのかと言うと、今、UTADAのショウケースの演出をやっていて、いつもの如くとても大掛かりで複雑な事をしようとしているのです。 ライブの演出なんか初めてのくせに、、、。 それにしてもこのライブ一回だけとはもったいない。 かっこいいよー!!


So he starts off talking about time, then talks about Utada's Showcase Live. He says the show will be complex and done on a large scale ... and that it may be too much for just one show.
