How to choose the right seats for a Broadway play?

Seating plays an important role in your Broadway experience and must be taken into serious consideration for a wholesome theater experience. In order to make the most of the best Broadway plays in New York, here’s a quick summarized version of the A-Z Broadway Theater Seating Charts to help you make an informed decision on what seats would suit you best:
  • Orchestra: If you’re looking for the best seats at any Broadway theater, the Orchestra seats are your best bet. These seats offer the best view in the house and allow you to observe the performance from up close. They are also the most popular and most expensive seats. 
  • Front Mezzanine: The seating section right above the Orchestra seats is commonly known as the Front Mezzanine. The front row center seats offer the best view in this section. 
  • Rear Mezzanine: This is the seating section above the Front Mezzanine. While these seats are furthest from the stage resulting in views that may not be as clear as from the Front Mezzanine, you will however find the cheapest ticket options for these seats. 

What is the difference between a Broadway and Off Broadway play?

Broadway plays refer to performances held at designated Broadway venues such as the Theater Districts, Lincoln Centre, etc. These are demarcated according to their seating capacities (more than 500 seats), as well as proximity to Broadway. Off-Broadway, as found in Hulu Theatre, Greenwich House Theatre, and more on the other hand, was developed as a reaction to the exorbitant pricing of Broadway plays. Off-Broadway plays are contractually bound to be so, and cannot be nominated for certain awards. 

What is currently playing at Broadway?

There are several plays currently running at Broadway. Some of them are:
  •  POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive: Politics meets comedy in this satire as you join the award winning ensemble to navigate a global crisis caused by the President’s PR stunt that leads to seven extraordinary women coming to save the day. 
  • The Play That Goes Wrong: Coming all the way from London, this award winning comedy is a must-watch. Travel back in time to the 1920s and situate yourself in the Cornley University Drama Society that tries its best to put up a play. 
  •  Macbeth: Fair is foul and foul is fair in this one, as Daniel Craig embodies the titular character of one of Shakespeare’s most tragic plays alongside Ruth Negga who plays the evergreen Lady Macbeth.
