The Booth Theatre Mezzanine has around 252 seats elevated above the Orchestra, split into three sections with aisles between and extending up to eight rows back.
The Mezzanine benefits from its smaller size, with views in all eight rows being very good. This is especially evident in the Center Mezzanine where good value seats are available in rows G and H. Seats at the far sides are more angled to the stage and therefore offer more restricted views, but a good rake ensures patrons can see over the rows in front for relatively clean sightlines. The best views are from rows A and B, with premium seats right in the center.
With tight space for taller patrons, the best legroom in the Mezzanine is on aisle seats. The extra legroom is best used from inside aisle seats, which face the stage more directly than those towards the far sides of the section.
The Booth Theatre Mezzanine has four aisle transfer seats available to purchase. However, as it is located upstairs, two flights (31 steps) above the Orchestra, it may not be suitable for all patrons with limited mobility.
Left MezzanineThis section comprises eight rows from A to H and odd-numbered seats between 1 and 17. Double-digit seats by the far aisle give a slightly more angled view, but this is a small theater so even the back rows of the Left Mezzanine are very good options. The best seats are on the inside of rows A and B, which offer impressively detailed and clean overviews of the stage. The section’s rake helps keep sightlines clear in the back rows as well, although the pitch can get tight; you will ideally find extra legroom on either aisle. The Left Mezzanine’s best seats start in the same price range as the back of the Orchestra, with very affordable seats in rows G and H.
Right MezzanineThe Right Mezzanine has eight rows from A to H and even-numbered seats between 2 and 18. The best seats are on the inside of rows A and B, which offer a clean, elevated position to watch a show. Double-digit seats by the far aisle are slightly more angled, but the section generally has very impressive sightlines which feel close to the stage. A good rake keeps sightlines clear from front to back as well, although space can be at a premium; patrons should opt for aisle seats if they need more legroom. Pricing in the Right Mezzanine starts in the same range as the rear of the Orchestra, with seats becoming cheaper and very good value in the last few rows.
Center MezzanineIn the Center Mezzanine, all eight rows from A to H are positioned directly in line with the stage, offering desirable elevated sightlines. Seats are in the range of 101 to 114, left to right, with either aisle a good option for extra legroom. Rows A and B are some of the best in the theater, with excellent and detailed views of performances below. Like the rest of the Mezzanine, this section benefits from a good rake that keeps each row lifted above those in front. Good value seats are plentiful in the rear of the section, therefore. The Center Mezzanine’s desirable premium seats are similar in price to the center-back Orchestra, with prices dropping in rows F to H.
SeatPlan’s best views of the stageRows A and B in the Center Mezzanine are some of the best in the entire theater. With elevated sightlines and very impressive close-up detail of the show, some patrons will prefer these over any Orchestra seats.
Best legroom seatsLegroom can get quite tight in the Mezzanine, so an aisle seat – especially towards the center – is a great option for anyone needing extra space.
