Majestic Theatre Orchestra

The Majestic theatre orchestra is the biggest section in the theatre with a large margin, accounting for a total of 885 seats out of the 1645 available.`Mirroring a stadium, the seats in this section have a subtle incline that allows even viewers sitting in the last few rows to get an unobstructed view of the stage.

The middle section, housing some of the best seats in the theatre, begins from row AA and extends till row X, bringing the total to 26. The seats in this section are numbered between 101 to 114, moving left to right.

Majestic Theatre Mezzanine

We have the Majestic theatre front mezzanine section, the first of the two elevated levels in the theatre. With only 292 seats, this is the smallest section in the theatre and also the best. While elevated, the front mezzanine is close enough to the stage to offer a fantastic view of the proceedings, without any obstructions. If you get lucky and score seats in the first row of the front mezzanine, well, there’s nothing better.

Rounding up our sectional breakdown is the second elevated level in the theatre, the rear mezzanine. Being furthest away from the main stage, the rear mezzanine section doesn’t offer the best view, but the substantially lower ticket prices make up for that.

Which seats offer the best view?


The seats with the best views in the Majestic Theater are in the Center Orchestra, specifically Rows B-J. You get a direct view of the stage without any obstructions. These seats also are the most expensive ones in the the theater. If you'd rather not be that close to the stage and wish to spend lesser on the ticket, then the seats with the best view will be the front mezzanine seats. The middle seats of Row A-C in the mezzanine section offer great views of the stage.

Which seats/section offer the best value for money?


Looking for good seats for The Phantom of the Opera but have budgetary restrictions? We get it. Especially if you’re visiting New York City and have tons of other places where you need to spend! To help you out, we have selected the best value for money seats in the Minskoff Theatre.
