Orchestra guide

The Orchestra is the largest area of seating at the Broadway Theatre, with around 909 seats divided between Left, Right and Center sections. A further 20 seats are located in six Boxes elevated at either side. On average, the Orchestra is the most expensive area of the Broadway Theatre seating chart.

Views from the Orchestra are largely good, although the depth of the auditorium means seats behind row T are more likely to feel distant. There is also some obstruction to the top of the stage from the Mezzanine overhang, which starts at row J and is more evident further back. Other less desirable seats are those close to the far-side aisles; these offer an angled and partial view of the stage.

The best seats in the Orchestra are those sitting most centrally, and a few rows back from the front. These are also some of the most expensive seats in the house thanks to their detailed and comprehensive views. Prices slowly decrease towards the back and sides to reflect the varying quality.

The Broadway Theatre Orchestra is on the ground floor. It is step-free for all patrons, and a number of wheelchair spaces and transfer seats are available in the section.

Left Orchestra

The Left Orchestra comprises 24 rows from B to Y, and seats are even-numbered between 2 and 28. Views are best from single-digit seats in rows D-G, which are set at a good distance for taking in large and busy productions. Double-digit seats above 14 or 16 are more restricted, with sightlines obstructed by the side of the stage. Beyond row T, patrons may find details less clear, and the Mezzanine overhang cuts into the top of the stage a little. There is average legroom in the Left Orchestra, although extra can be found in aisle seats. Prices are highest in the front rows and single-digit seats, and become cheaper towards the back and far side.

Three Boxes are elevated to the side of the section, with angled views of the stage.

Right Orchestra

The Right Orchestra comprises 24 rows from B at the front to Y at the rear. Odd-numbered seats escalate from 1 to 27 at the far side, although the front rows are shorter. Views are best from single-digit seats in rows D-G, which sit at an ideal distance from the stage. Double-digit seats over 15 have more restricted views, with action cut off at the far right-hand side and corner. Beyond row T, patrons may find the distance makes it difficult to pick out details. There is average legroom in the Right Orchestra, although extra can be found in aisle seats. Prices are highest in the front rows and single-digit seats, and become cheaper towards the back and far side.

Three Boxes are elevated to the side of the section, with angled views of the stage.

Center Orchestra

The Center Orchestra has 25 rows from A to Y, with seats numbered between 101 and 114, right to left. Rows across this section face directly towards the stage; patrons will find either aisle is a good choice for extra legroom, therefore. The best views are from rows D-G, which are set at a good distance for both detail and a comprehensive look at the whole set. After row T, details are less clear and shorter patrons in particular may find sightlines slightly obstructed. The Mezzanine overhang also drops into the top of the stage in the back rows. This is the most expensive overall section in the Orchestra, with the priciest tickets attached to the premium front rows.

SeatPlan’s best views of the stage

Rows D to G in the Center Orchestra are premium seats with excellent views of the stage. From this position, theatergoers aren’t too close for comfort, but can still enjoy plenty of detail. Rows F and G in particular are great for getting a wider look at the stage and set pieces.

Best legroom seats

The best seats for extra legroom in the Orchestra are in row A, or on the aisles. To make the most of a clean, direct view of the stage, seats on the inside aisles should be a first choice.

Tips

• The Front Mezzanine overhang starts at row J
• The best views are from rows D to G in the Center Orchestra
• Seats behind row T are more distant and less detailed
• The side sections have partial views of stage left or right
• Good value seats are on the inside aisles or rows H-P in the Center Orchestra
