Theatre Seating Sections

Most Broadway theatres have three sections, namely, orchestra, front mezzanine, and rear mezzanine. There are some smaller theatres, like the August Wilson, that have only two, orchestra and mezzanine. There are box seats on either side of most theatres too for patrons looking for a private theatre viewing experience.

Here’s a breakdown of each section to help you get better acquainted with our Broadway theatre seating chart.


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 theatre.

Front Mezzanine

The first of the two elevated levels, front mezzanine also has some of the best seats in a theatre, especially the front row centre section.

Rear Mezzanine

The last and 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.

In our weekly series we will be doing a detailed breakdown of the popular theatres on the  Broadway circuit. Find specific seating details for each theatre in our comprehensive theatre seating charts.
