Imperial Theatre seating chart, Broadway, New York

Looking to get the best out of your experience? Check out our Imperial Theatre seating chart and get real-time seat availability, pricing, and insider tips on the best seats.

Value for money seats

  • Rear Mezzanine (E): The seats in the middle to front rows, especially closer to the Center, are affordably priced while offering the best views from the Rear Mezzanine section. The rear seats are much cheaper, however, and since the section is raked and elevated you will still get a clear view of the stage, albeit from a distance.
  • Front Mezzanine (B-D): Seats in the front rows of the Front Mezzanine are a great balance between clear views of the stage and affordability. The rear seats, especially toward the ends of the rows, are much cheaper, but seats in the middle rows have better views.
  • Orchestra (J-V): These rows of the Orchestra section give you great views of the stage without the premium rates of the seats in the front rows. The rear-most rows are much cheaper, but we'd recommend seats a little further front so you can see the performance more clearly.

Best views of the stage

  • Orchestra (B-O): The seats in the Center Orchestra numbered 105-110 offer the best views in the theater. Seats along the aisles of these rows in the Left and Right Orchestra also offer excellent views of the stage.
  • Front Mezzanine (A): The front rows of the two Center sections of the Front Mezzanine offer the best views from this section. They're more affordably priced than the Orchestra while still offering unobstructed views of the stage.
  • Rear Mezzanine (A-F): The closer to the front you sit in the Rear Mezzanine, the better. You'll get unobstructed views of the stage from the front row, even if it is some distance away from the action. The vantage point works great for larger productions, so it's definitely a great bargain for shows with large ensemble casts and intricate set designs.

Sections available in Imperial Theatre


  • 759 seats
  • Rows AA-V

  • The Orchestra section has 759 seats split across three sub-sections: Left, Right, and Center.
  • Rows B to J are premium seats. These are more expensive than a standard ticket but offer the best views and an immersive experience.
  • The section is neither raked nor elevated, so the view from the rear seats might be partially obstructed, depending on who sits in front of you.
  • Seats closest to the stage might experience a partial obstruction from the front edge of the stage.
  • The section is on the ground level, accessible via a step-free entrance on 249 West 45th Street. The section also has five wheelchair-designated seats with up to three companion seats each and another nine transfer seats in the middle rows.

Front Mezzanine

  • 303 seats
  • Rows A-F

  • Sometimes called the "Mezzanine," the Front Mezzanine is the first of two elevated and raked sections just behind and above the Orchestra.
  • It has 282 seats split into four sub-sections: Left, Right, and two Center sections. It additionally has 20 seats split across two Boxes, one on either side.
  • The Center sections have better views at more affordable rates than the Orchestra. The seats further toward the sides have some sightline restrictions due to being angled, but you can still get decent views from the front rows and aisle seats.
  • The Boxes offer privacy and comfort, but the steep angle means you'll be viewing the show from way off-Center. You can still get decent views from these seats, however, depending on the show being performed.
  • There are three transfer seats available in this section, but since there are no elevators or escalators at this venue, these seats can only be reached via stairs.

Rear Mezzanine

  • 377 seats
  • Rows A-H

  • Sometimes referred to as the "Balcony," the second elevated and raked section is the Rear Mezzanine.
  • The section is split across five sub-sections that curve significantly toward the ends of the rows.
  • The seats in the rear might suffer from some sightline restrictions, mostly due to the distance from the stage. But thanks to the rake and elevation, you should still get a clear view of the stage for most of the show.
  • There are four transfer seats in this section, but they can only be reached after climbing up two flights of stairs.
