In its standard layout, the Broadway Theatre has a capacity of approximately 1,763 seats across three main sections, with the Front and Rear Mezzanines sharing balcony space. The Orchestra seating chart splits into Left, Center and Right, with views best in the Center. The Front Mezzanine’s Center seats also offer attractive views for patrons wanting to sit further back whilst the Rear Mezzanine is more affordable, reflecting its distance and less desirable sightlines. Boxes are available for angled, private seating, and across all levels seats further to the sides have partial views.

Venue Overview

Although it now shares a name with the street it sits on, the Broadway Theatre originally opened in 1924 as a movie house called the Colony, which famously premiered Steamboat Willie (1928). It has operated under its current name since 1930, and despite intervening stints as a cinema in the ‘30s and ‘50s, it has enjoyed a long history as a hotspot for popular musicals.

The Broadway Theatre’s original owner, B. S. Moss, conceived the building as a new addition to his movie chain. Architect Eugene DeRosa was employed to create a roomy auditorium and Renaissance-inspired décor; when it transitioned from film to live performance, this design proved the perfect match to accommodate large-scale musicals.

Notable productions at the Broadway Theatre include transfers from other New York venues including Funny Girl (1966) and The Wiz (1977). However, it has also hosted its own premiers, from Evita (1979) through to Les Misérables (1987-1991). Recent shows include Shrek (2008), Sister Act (2011) and a revival of Miss Saigon (2017).

Broadway Theatre Seating Chart

Good value seats

There are a few options for good value seats in the Broadway Theatre. Rows H to P in the Center Orchestra are slightly cheaper than premium whilst retaining a clean look at the stage. Rows D and E in the Front Mezzanine have enough rake for clean and not-too-distant overhead views. The Rear Mezzanine, although distant and less immersive, can be good for bargains. The best affordable seats here are in rows A to C.

Premium seats

Premium seats at the Broadway Theatre are in the Center Orchestra, rows D to G. From here, patrons are neither too close nor too far from the stage, and it’s the perfect position to take in detail without losing sight of the bigger picture. In the Front Mezzanine, rows A to C are also expensive, but their excellent, sweeping views are worth the spend.
