The Broadhurst Theatre Mezzanine is located above the Orchestra. There are 429 seats divided into the Left, Right and Center, with stepped aisles running the length of each. There is no Balcony above so rows are not affected by an overhang.
The Mezzanine benefits from the wide auditorium it is situated in, with sightlines across all three sections largely impressive. The best seats are in rows A and B of the Center Mezzanine, which are perfect for elevated views directly in front of the stage. A good rake also means seats further back have a decent view, although those at the far sides of the Left and Right Mezzanine will have more partial sightlines.
This section is very tight in the middle of rows, especially for taller patrons. To avoid this, the best options for good legroom are on aisle seats which give the opportunity to stretch out a bit.
The Mezzanine does not have any wheelchair seats but there are eight transfer seats across the section. Patrons with limited mobility should check before booking, as there are steps up to and in the Mezzanine.
Prices in the Mezzanine are generally lower than the Orchestra, with the cheapest seats towards the back and sides.
Left MezzanineThe Left Mezzanine comprises odd-numbered seats ascending from 1 to 27, with rows starting at A and ending at the back with L. The Mezzanine is a wide section, so seats farther out still have decent views, however patrons sitting beyond 18 won’t be able to see movement or action on the far left-hand side of the stage. Sightlines are more central near the inside aisle, and a good rake means the back row has a relatively clear view over the heads of people sitting in front. Seats in the corners may even be surprisingly good value for money, as they are the cheapest in the theater. Mid-row seats can be very tight on space, so those wanting more legroom should look for an aisle seat, in particular on the inside.
Right MezzanineThe Right Mezzanine is similar to its Left counterpart, with 11 rows of seats numbered evenly between 2 and 28. The best seats are in the front rows, as close to the inside aisle as possible. Patrons sitting in double-digit seats will have a partial view of the right-hand side of the stage. Despite this, there are some good value deals to be had in the Right Mezzanine. Sightlines up to the back row are decent, with enough staggered seating to keep a mainly clear view of the stage. Whilst distant and less desirable than central seats, these are the cheapest options in the Broadhurst Theatre and therefore good for visitors on a budget. Like the rest of the Mezzanine, legroom is limited unless you have a seat on the aisles.
Center MezzanineThe Center Mezzanine has 11 rows, with seats numbering 101-114 right to left; the back four rows are slightly shorter. Sightlines are impressive from almost every seat, with a decent rake elevating the back rows and reducing the risk of patrons in front blocking the view completely. The best and priciest seats are in row A which is valued for its direct, panoramic views of the stage. Seats are very close together, making the Center Mezzanine less desirable for comfort, but there are plenty of options for a bit more legroom on either aisle. This is the most expensive section in the Mezzanine, with premium seats starting just below premium Orchestra. Seats in the back few rows are a good value option considering the views on offer.
SeatPlan’s best views of the stageRows A and B in the Center Mezzanine are arguably better than some Center Orchestra seats. The expansive, direct views of the stage are hard to beat, especially for dramatic and spectacular set pieces.
Best legroom seatsThe Mezzanine can be very cramped in the middle of rows, so patrons should choose an aisle seat for extra legroom. Every aisle has a fair view of the stage, but those bordering the Center Mezzanine are best.
Tips• The best seats are across row A in the Center Mezzanine
• Transfer seats are located in rows from front to back
• A good rake creates relatively clear sightlines in the back rows
• All non-accessible restrooms are down two flights of stairs; pick an aisle seat to get out quickly
PricingThe Center Mezzanine starts at a similar price to the middle rows of the Orchestra, with premium seats in rows A and B. The cheapest seats are over to the sides of the Left and Right Mezzanine, where the view may be a little more restricted.
Patrons can buy drinks and snacks from the bar on Mezzanine level before the show or during the intermission. Be aware that queues can get long.
Restrooms in the Broadhurst Theatre are one level (20 steps) below the Orchestra, and will get busy during the intermission. There is a wheelchair accessible restroom on the ground floor.
