30-Second Takeaway: Hudson Theatre
- The theater is smaller than your average Broadway theater, housing a total of 976 seats spread across three sections.
- The orchestra section has 476 seats, with rows A to K providing a uniformly good view of the stage.
- The second section, dress circle has 254 seats and offers a mixed bag of viewing angles. The centre seats of the first couple of rows (A to E) are just as good as the front orchestra seats.
- The balcony offers an average viewing experience but the ticket prices make up for that. If you’re on a budget, we would recommend, a seat in the middle rows of the dress circle or the front row of the balcony.
- The theater has been renovated recently so you can expect a generally pleasant viewing experience.
- The Hudson Theatre is currently playing Parisian Woman, a political drama set in Washington D.C.
- The ticket availability of Parisian Woman is decent, with an average theater occupancy rate between 75% to 85%. Generally, the best seats, i.e. front orchestra and front dress circle sell out fast and if you wait for the last moment to book your tickets, you’ll only get average seats.

Navigating The Hudson Theatre Seating Chart
Hudson Theatre Orchestra
The Orchestra section has a total of 474 seats that are divided into two sections.
The first half of the orchestra has a total of 196 seats spread across 10 rows, from row A to row K. This section is not only closest to the stage, but it also offers a uniquely immersive experience and is destined to be the best seats in the house.
The second half of the orchestra is divided longitudinally into 3 subsections - the center orchestra and the two side orchestras. The center orchestra here has 164 seats spread across 10 rows, from row L to row U.
Hudson Theatre Dress Circle
The Dress Circle (or mezzanine) is the first elevated section of the Hudson Theatre. Spread over 10 rows, from row A to row J, the dress circle has a seating capacity of 254 seats. The Dress Circle is further divided into three longitudinal sections - center, left and right dress circle.
Left Dress Circle
The left dress circle seats are spread across 10 rows (A to J) and are odd numbered.
Center Dress Circle
The center dress circle seats are spread across 10 rows (A to J).
Right Dress Circle
The right dress circle seats are spread across 10 rows (A to J) and are even numbered.
Hudson Theater Balcony
The Balcony is the second elevated section of the Hudson Theatre. Spread over 8 rows, from row A to row H, the balcony is almost as big as the dress circle with a capacity of 240 seats. The Balcony is also divided into three longitudinal sections:
The left balcony seats are spread across 8 rows (A to H) and are odd numbered.
The center balcony seats are spread across 8 rows (A to H).
The right balcony seats are spread across 8 rows (A to H) and are even numbered.
Which Seats Offer The Best View?
There’s no denying that the front Orchestra has the best seats in the Hudson Theater. These seats not only offer an uninterrupted view of the stage, but also bring you closer to all the action. Specifically, the center seats of rows A to E are the amongst the best in theatre.
Opinions might different on this one but the second in line after front orchestra is the front section of the dress circle. Providing patrons an elevated view of the stage, the dress circle seats are great on their own right.
Being the first elevated section, seats in the first few rows of the center dress circle are one the best and offer the most stunning views.
Which seats/section offer the best value for money?
While both the premium orchestra and the front rows of dress circle are considered the best in the theatre, most wouldn’t exactly call them value for money. That honor goes to the middle orchestra and middle dress circle seats.
Any seat in the rows F to M of the orchestra section offers a decent view and is easy on the pocket. For dress circle, rows E to H are suitable picks for the budget conscious.
