Choosing the Best Seats

Broadway theaters are huge. One important defining characteristic for a theater to be classified as a Broadway theater is that it has to have a minimum of 500 seats. Seats in a Broadway house are usually spread across three sections.

Orchestra

The Orchestra is the section closest to the stage and it offers the best views in the house. Along with the views, sitting here will place you closer to the action, making your Broadway experience that much more intimate. When it comes to pricing, seats in the front center of the Orchestra are the most expensive while seats in the back and to the sides are relatively cheaper. If the seats are available, we recommend you try to sit as close to the stage as possible and if not, go for the side seats in the Orchestra or the first few rows in the Mezzanine.

Mezzanine

The Mezzanine is the first elevated seating section of the theater. The first few rows of the Mezzanine offer stunning panoramic views of the stage and are often considered to be among the best seats in the house. Located above the Orchestra, seats in the Mezzanine will have you looking down at the stage rather than looking up. Though the front central seats in the Mezzanine are sometimes as costly as central Orchestra seats, most of the section is relatively cheaper and offers the perfect combination of good views and affordable pricing.

Balcony

Though some theaters are limited to only Orchestra and Mezzanine seats, many of the larger theaters have an additional Balcony section. The Balcony is a level above the Mezzanine and also the furthest away from the stage. The cheapest seats in a Broadway house are often found in the Balcony section. Though you do get to see most of the stage from a bird’s-eye view, to place yourself so far away from the stage is quite a compromise to make.
