Front Mezzanine guide

The Broadway Theatre Front Mezzanine is the smallest section in the venue, with just 250 seats split across two larger central blocks and two smaller side blocks. There are six rows from A to F, with stepped aisles running between.

The Front Mezzanine’s main advantage is its small size; the back rows, although more distant, don’t feel too badly removed from the action below. They are also unaffected by a Balcony overhang – the Rear Mezzanine is in the same elevated section rather than above – and a good rake ensures patrons can see over the seats in front.

The best seats are in rows A to C of the Left and Right Center Mezzanine. These are also some of the most expensive in the house thanks to their unobstructed, sweeping views. Further to the sides, views are not as detailed or complete, with seats becoming more angled to the stage. Prices here tend to be a little cheaper to reflect the partial sightlines.

There are three transfer seats in the Front Mezzanine, all located in the back row, near the entrance. However, as the section is located up two flights of stairs, patrons with limited mobility should take care when booking these seats.

Left Front Mezzanine

The Left Front Mezzanine comprises six rows from A to F, with seats even-numbered between 2 on the inside and 18 on the outside aisle. The best views are from the single-digit seats in rows A to C, which are more centrally placed than those further over. Double-digit seats closer to the left aisle have more angled views of the stage, with restricted views of stage right (your left). From seats such as A2, the higher safety railing may also cut into sightlines a bit. Legroom can be tight, so anywhere on the inside aisle is the best choice for extra space. Prices in the Left Front Mezzanine are highest in the front rows and single digits, with the cheapest seats at the back and side.

Center Left Front Mezzanine

This section has rows from A to F, and seats are even-numbered in the range of 102 to 124, right to left. All seats are elevated directly above the stage, with the best and most detailed views in rows A to C. These are also the most expensive rows in the section, although good value seats are available further back in rows D and E especially. Each row has a good rake which ensures patrons in the back rows can see the stage cleanly, despite feeling a little more distant. The best legroom is on the inside aisle, although the far aisle isn’t too angled from the stage. Premium seats are in the front three rows, with prices dropping slightly at the back.

Center Right Front Mezzanine

This section has rows from A to F, and seats are odd-numbered in the range of 101 to 123, left to right. The best and most detailed views are from rows A to C, which are also the priciest. However, each row has a good rake to allow patrons a clean view of the stage, so good value – if slightly more distant – seats are available further back in rows D and E. The best legroom in the section is on the inside aisle, although the far aisle has decent views which aren’t noticeably angled to the stage. Premium seats are in the front three rows, with prices dropping slightly at the back.

Right Front Mezzanine

The Right Front Mezzanine comprises six rows from A to F, with odd-numbered seats ranging between 1 on the inside and 17 on the far aisle. The best views are from single-digit seats in rows A to C, which are more centrally placed than those further over. Double-digit seats closer to the left aisle have more angled views of the stage, with restricted views of stage right (your left). From seats such as A1, the higher safety railing may also cut into sightlines a bit. Legroom can be tight, so anywhere on the inside aisle is the best choice for extra space. Prices in the Right Front Mezzanine are highest in the front rows and single digits, with the cheapest seats at the back and side.

SeatPlan’s best views of the stage

Rows A to C of the Center Mezzanine are excellent for direct overhead views. From this vantage point, patrons can see the full sweep of a grand musical without having to look up at the stage for extended periods. Rows D and E are also good for cheaper seats.

Best legroom seats

Across the whole Front Mezzanine, aisle seats and row A have the best legroom. To make the most of a clean, direct view of the stage, seats on the inside aisles should be a first choice for extra space.

Tips

• There is no overhang from the Rear Mezzanine in the back rows
• The best views are from rows A to C in the Center Mezzanine
• Good value seats are by the inside aisle or Center Mezzanine rows D and E
• The safety railing is slightly higher in front of seats A1 and A2
• The side sections have partial views of stage left or right

Pricing

Premium seats in the Front Mezzanine are across rows A to C, especially in the center two blocks. These are around the same price as rows in the middle and back of the Orchestra. The back two rows and far side seats are a price bracket cheaper, representing good value seats in the Front Mezzanine.

Bars

Drinks and other refreshments are available from the bar on this level.

Toilets

The closest restrooms are on the Mezzanine level, 11 steps down from the main seating area. These restrooms are between flights of stairs so care should be taken when queuing. Other restrooms are one floor below the Orchestra, in the lower lobby.
