  • Vivian Beaumont Theater, section: Orchestra Left, row: C, seat: 105
    Oslo
    You can't always see or hear clearly when the actors are facing away from you, BUT you literally get within inches of some of the actors and the action is all right in front of you.

  • Dunkin' Donuts Park, section: S16, row: B
    Hartford Yard Goats
    At the very least, you get a great view of the Hartford Skyline!
  • Dunkin' Donuts Park, section: 211
    Hartford Yard Goats
    View from the standing room spots behind all the seats in the section.
  • Dunkin' Donuts Park, section: 111, row: H, seat: 5
    Hartford Yard Goats vs Binghamton Rumble Ponies
    Great view and in the shade!
  • Rentschler Field, section: 113, row: 16, seat: 26
    U.S. Men's National Team vs Ghana
    Among the best of the cheap seats. Just a couple of rows back from top of the lower level and right near the corner flag. The entrance to the U.S. Team's locker room was at the bottom of the section, so there were numerous close-up views of the players.
  • Hudson Theatre, section: Balcony, row: G, seat: 112
    1984
    You see all the downstage action, but this show has a lot of video projections. Being high up in the balcony means the top curtain (right below the proscenium arch) cuts off thu top of the video projection screen. You don't miss anything important, but you also don't get the full effect of the production. Sound is loud and clear (trust me haha). Legroom is tight (what else do you expect at a Broadway theatre)?
  • Imperial Theatre, section: Orchestra Right, row: B, seat: 14
    Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812
    Despite what your ticket says, this seat is front row orchestra, furthest seat to the right. If you have table and salon patrons seated in front of you (especially tall ones), this seat is miserable: Your neck will hurt from craning and constantly shifting to see the action on the stage. The stage left stairwell that leads to the mezzanine blocks some of your field of vision (including the downstage stage left stairwell) as well as much of the sound. I only paid $39 for a rush ticket for this seat. I would have been pissed if I had paid full price for this seat. The one upside apart from a "unique" angle? Lots of audience-actor interaction and close-up views of the actors.
  • August Wilson Theatre, section: Front Mezzanine Right, row: E, seat: 14
    Groundhog Day The Musical
    Fantastic seat. You'd think being on the side you'd miss things, but you pretty much see the entire show. I only missed about 10 seconds of something not even important to the plot. You can see facial expressions clearly. Sound was only okay, but I think it's because of a sound design issue. Don't sit too far into the rear mezzanine or the catwalk will block your view. Any further right may not be good either, but I'm not sure.

  • Palace Theatre (Broadway), section: Balcony Left, row: D, seat: 19
    Sunset Boulevard
    Modestly decent view. The balcony is high up, and the rake is steep. You'll have to lean forward to see over the balcony lip and the top curtain cuts off the top of the stage. You may have to squint to see the actors' facial expressions. Seating VERY tight. Sound is okay.
  • Palace Theatre (Broadway), section: Orchestra Right, row: S, seat: 6
    An American in Paris
    A much better view than I expected from a side orchestra seat. The mezzanine overhang cuts off a bit of the top of the stage, but moving forward any further would have cut into the stage right view. Sound was fine.
  • Theatre at St. Clement's, row: F, seat: 15
    Comfort Women: A New Musical
    Not a bad seat in the house, though the rake of the seating area may cause the proscenium arch to cut off the top of the stage. Given how low-tech the theatre is, though, this really shouldn't be a problem.
  • Ordway Center for the Performing Arts - Music Theater, section: Orchestra, row: M, seat: 208
    Damn Yankees
    One of the best seats in the house. I could see the full set, yet I felt immensely close to the action.
  • The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts - Mortensen Hall, section: Mezzanine, row: D, seat: 108
    Kinky Boots
    Note: Photo was taken standing up. In my opinion, The Bushnell is one of the worst places to see a touring Broadway production. Mortensen Hall is set up as an orchestral concert hall, and thus the mezzanine and balcony are really far back. This vantage point is from the front-left mezzanine and the views and sound were still sub-par.
  • Vivian Beaumont Theater, section: Loge, row: A, seat: 501
    The King and I
    Good view, though the proscenium arch will cut off a bit of stage left. I wouldn't recommend sitting much further to the right. I took this photo lower than eye-level to avoid a hawkish usher; the lip of the Loge **WON'T** block your view.
  • Studio 54, section: Rear Mezzanine, row: JJ, seat: 105
    Cabaret
    The views from the rear mezzanine aren't bad at Studio 54, though the sound design in the theatre is not the best. Note that "Cabaret" was in a thrust stage setup, which may not be the case for all shows at Studio 54.
  • Rentschler Field, section: 109, row: 4, seat: 5
    U.S. Men's National Team vs Costa Rica
    Great seat if you like to see goals scored close up and if you like the energy of a supporter's section. These are the "cheap seats". FYI: This endline is more elevated than the scoreboard endline.
  • Lyric Theatre, section: ORCHL, row: N, seat: 23
    On the Town
    Note: This photo was taken using panoramic/photo sphere perspective. I could see most of the action and could hear everything just fine, but I found it distracting that the proscenium arch cut off stage right and that I could see offstage on stage left.
