Seating Chart - Sections Explained


Al Hirschfeld Theatre Mezzanine

The Al Hirschfeld Theatre Mezzanine section is divided into two major subsections with varying seat counts and two small subsections in each corner.

The corner left section has 19 rows (A-T) with odd numbered seats that fall in the range of 1-25. The corner right section also has 19 rows in total (A-T) and even numbered seats falling in the range of 2-26. Both the left and right mezzanine have a gap after the first four rows (A-D), which holds some of the better seats in the section.

Finally, the center left section, which has the most number of seats, has consecutively numbered seats that fall in the range of 101 to 115, moving right to left. Please note that seats in the last few rows and on the sides offer restricted views.

Which Seats Offer the Best View?


While most average sized Broadway theatres have three sections (and some small ones too), Al Hirschfeld Theatre is one of the few with 1300+ seats spread across only two sections. While this limits viewing options, the theatre is wider than it’s longer, which means there are still plenty of good seats you can pick from.

Like all other theatres, the middle seats of premium orchestra rows (A-E) are considered the best in the theatre. They offer viewers a direct, unobstructed view of the stage. For obvious reasons, the price tag for these premium orchestra seats is also the heftiest in the theatre.

While premium orchestra seats are unanimously considered the best, some people do prefer the middle seats of the front mezzanine, mostly due to their elevation. Specifically, the seats 101 to 114 in rows A to C are preferred by many. Some past viewers have complained about the seating in the mezzanine section being too cramped, so consider that before picking your seats.

Which Seats/Section Offer the Best Value for Money?


The best seats, premium orchestra and front mezzanine, are also some of the most expensive in the theatre. If you’re unwilling to spend truckloads on watching a Broadway show, we have hand-picked the next best thing for you - seats that offer a good view and aren’t too heavy on the pockets.

Speaking of value for money seats in the orchestra section, seats in the middle rows (F to O) are relatively cheaper than the premium orchestra seats while offering a good look at the stage. When it comes to the mezzanine section, the middle two sections, both odd and even numbered, have good seats in rows D and E. Do note that the further back you move in the mezzanine section, the more steep view you’ll get.

Al Hirschfeld Theatre Reviews


Went to go see Moulin Rouge. The price tag is pretty hefty unless you book in advance (more than I've ever paid in my 20 years of theatre!). The set design is stunning and production values in general were insane. Easily one of the better musicals I've seen. I sat on the balcony (4th row, left-centralish), and the seats were extremely comfortable, though legroom was very limited. I am 5'3 and I could not comfortable cross my legs, but did fit sitting normally. Others around me had their knees up the next seat. View was surprisingly good and close. As others have said, it's not a very large theatre and the rake is good......

Al Hirschfelt theatre on 45th street in New York is excellent. Went to see the Moulin Rough on a Thursday night. Got the tickets which are within the stage area. They close the bridge behind you and the dancers literally dance completely around you. It was excellent ! Recommended.
