Lyric Theatre seating chart, Broadway, New York

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

Value for money seats

  • Balcony (A-J): Seats toward the end of each row in the Balcony are more affordable while still giving you decent views of the performance. Since this section is quite elevated, the rear seats might make it harder to see the stage. The seats in the front rows (A-C) offer better views at slightly higher rates. The Boxes along the sides have comfortable seating but you might find some parts of the performances suffer from partially restricted sightlines.
  • Dress Circle (E-H): This section has some of the best views of the stage thanks to both its elevation and a comfortable rake. The middle rows are your best bet for affordably priced seats with quality views.
  • Orchestra (K-P): You’ll get the most immersive experience from the Orchestra section. But since it isn’t raked, your immersion might suspend now and then if you happen to be in the rear seats. For good value with decent views, try seats closer to the middle of the section, in the Second Orchestra, between seats 2-20 in the Right section and 1-19 in the Left section.

Best views of the stage

  • Orchestra (AA-J, Center): Nothing beats a stage-front view for shows at the Lyric Theatre. It's an immersive experience no doubt and you’ll get to see mastery in action with shows like Harry Potter and the Cursed Child that use high-level puppetry and stage design to bring the magic to life. Try seats closer to the center to really feel like you’re part of the show.
  • Dress Circle (A-D): Seats in the Dress Circle might not get you up-close and personal with every performance but they’re a great way to enjoy the stage design and shows with larger, ensemble casts. For the best views from this section, try seats numbered 107-116, closer to the middle.
  • Balcony (A-C): The Center Balcony gives you a clearer view of the stage than the rear or side seats. Rows A and B offer the best views, while C offers decent views with legroom.

  • The First Orchestra is closer to the stage and has some of the best views in the theater.
  • This section is not raked, so the rear seats of the Second Orchestra might have sightline restrictions for some parts of the performances. The First Orchestra, however, enjoys unobstructed views from most seats, with minor partial obstructions for the rear seats.
  • The Orchestra has accessible seating in Row J. Companion seats are also available. The section has step-free access and the accessible entrance is on 42nd Street, so all patrons with limited mobility can comfortably enjoy their experience at Lyric Theatre.
