When watching a Broadway show that involves a lot of theatrics and movement (or any Broadway show, really), your choice of seating matters a lot. While booking whatever seats are available seems like the easy choice, there’s much importance associated to the where you sit. Pick wrongly and you’ll not be able to enjoy the show quite as much. We understand that, which is precisely why we have handpicked the best seats in Lyceum Theatre for you. .

In the Lyceum Theatre, the front orchestra seats in rows C to E are considered the best since they are not too close to the stage and aren’t too far back either. Within the mezzanine section, the middle seats in rows A to C are the most coveted. These seats offer a clean, direct look at the stage and the elevation only makes things better. As with most small theaters, sightlines and acoustics are good from nearly every seats.

Which seats/section offer the best value for money?

The front mezzanine and front orchestra seats mentioned above are truly the best seats in the theatre, but they also happen to be the costliest. We have the best value for money seats in Lyceum Theatre listed below for you.

The middle orchestra rows F-J are quite decent and cost a lot less than the premium orchestra seats. Center seats in rows D to F in the mezzanine section are also value for money considering the clean view on offer and price attached to them. In the balcony section, middle seats in the first two rows (A and B) are also quite decent for the money they cost. But remember, since the Lyceum Theatre is relatively small, there is no such thing as a bad seat.
