Eugene O'Neill Theatre Orchestra

The orchestra section of Eugene O'Neill Theatre holds a total of 688 seats, making it the biggest seating section of the theatre. With 19 rows from A to T, the orchestra section is further divided into three subsections, left orchestra, right orchestra, and center orchestra. The left orchestra seats are odd numbered, falling between 1-25, the center orchestra seats are subsequently numbered from 101 to 115, the right orchestra seats are even numbered in the range of 2-26.

Like most Broadway theatres, Eugene O'Neill Theatre orchestra’s first few rows offer the best view of the stage without any obstructions and ample sound clarity. The tickets for premium orchestra are arguably the most expensive but if you’re a particularly ardent fan of the show or any of its performer, these are seats you should go for. You’ll perfectly clear looks at all the performances on the stage and see everything from as close as humanly possible.

The corner seats close to the middle aisle are great too and available at a relatively cheaper cost than the premium orchestra seats. On the other hand, the extreme corner seats on either side of the theater are definitely avoidable. The middle rows are quite good and the low priced tickets make them worth your money. Then there are the last few rows, which are the cheapest of the lot and for good reason. The view offered is average at best and there might be minor obstructions in viewing angles.

Eugene O'Neill Theatre Mezzanine

The second section in Eugene O'Neill Theatre is the mezzanine. With a total seat count of 366, this section is considerably smaller than the orchestra. The section itself is divided into two parts, the front mezzanine and the rear mezzanine.

The front mezzanine has four rows in total (A-D) with the same subsection breakdown as the orchestra. The rear mezzanine is slightly bigger with 7 rows (E-L). Looking at the view on offer, the front mezzanine offers a uniformly good look at the stage, particularly the first few rows. The rear mezzanine has decent seats too, given the relatively small size of the theater.

The last few rows of this section can be avoided if you not under a strict budget. While the corner seats are average, the constant turning to view the stage can get pretty annoying after a while. Still, if you’re looking for cheap tickets for The Book of Mormon, go for the corner mezzanine seats over corner orchestra seats.

Which Seats Offer the Best View?

The best seats in the Eugene O’Neill Theatre are in rows A-D of the Center Orchestra and row A of the Center Mezzanine. In particular, the Orchestra is excellent for a detailed look at performances, and row A of the Center Mezzanine is unrivalled for its sweeping elevated views.

The best views are towards the inside, in particular from row A or seats 101-107. These are also the most expensive seats in the Left Mezzanine. Seats farther to the left are angled, with the left-hand side of the stage partially blocked. Seats such as B27 may also be obstructed by the Boxes to the side.

The best views are towards the inside of the section, in particular from the most expensive areas: row A or seats 102-108, which are elevated behind the premium Center Mezzanine. Seats farther to the right have angled views of the stage, and seats such as B28 will also be obstructed by the Boxes.

Seats in the section start at 101 on the right and escalate to 114 on the left. Views from every seat are some of the best in the theater, with row A offering exceptional overhead views of the stage. A good rake also ensures rows B-D have clean sightlines. Whilst legroom can be limited, any aisle seat in the Center Orchestra will offer extra space that doesn’t compromise on quality.

Which Seats/Section Offer the Best Value for Money?

There are various options for good value seating at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre. Rows H-N of the Center Orchestra are below premium whilst keeping very clean and desirable sightlines towards the stage. Similarly, the middle and back rows of the Mezzanine have a good overhead view which is good for a budget.

However, theatergoers should be aware that, at the far sides of the Left and Right Orchestra and in the back corners, views become more restricted and side-on. Prices are set to reflect this, with the cheapest seats in the far corners of the Orchestra. Patrons can expect to pay more towards the inside and front, with prices dropping at the far sides and back. Seats cost more in the front rows and become cheaper towards the back and right-hand aisle.

The most expensive seats in the Center Orchestra are in the front, and patrons will find tickets cost a bit less in the more distant back rows.
