Broadway Theater Seating Sections
Most Broadway theaters have three sections, namely, orchestra, front mezzanine, and rear mezzanine. There are some smaller theaters, like the August Wilson, that have only two, orchestra and mezzanine. There are box seats on either side of most theaters too for patrons looking for a private theater viewing experience.
Here’s a breakdown of each section to help you get better acquainted with our Broadway theater seating chart.
Orchestra Section Seating
The Orchestra section of Marquis Theatre.
The section closest to the stage and the only one not elevated, orchestra is arguably the most popular too. Offering a mostly unobstructed view of the stage, orchestra seats are some of the most coveted and expensive seats in any theater.
Front Mezzanine Section Seating
The Front Mezzanine section of Marquis Theatre.
The first of the two elevated levels, front mezzanine also has some of the best seats in a theater, especially the front row center section.
Rear Mezzanine Section Seating
The Rear Mezzanine/Balcony of New Amsterdam Theatre
The furthest away from the stage is the rear mezzanine. While offering an average view of the stage, the ticket prices for this section sometimes are the only choice for those looking to see the popular Broadway shows on a budget.
