Mezzanine Guide

The James Earl Jones Theatre Mezzanine comprises around 264 seats above the Orchestra, split into three sections flanked by aisles. Boxes seating a further 12 people are positioned at either side of the auditorium.

The Mezzanine benefits from its smaller size, with views in every row clean and clear. This is especially evident in the Center Mezzanine where seats face directly above the stage. Seats at the far sides are more angled and therefore offer more restricted views, but a good rake ensures patrons can see over the rows in front for impressive sightlines. The best views are from rows A and B of the Center Mezzanine.

With tight space for taller patrons, the best legroom in the Mezzanine is on aisle seats. The extra comfort is offset by a slightly more restricted view on the far sides of the Left and Right Front Mezzanine, however.

The James Earl Jones Theatre Mezzanine has three aisle transfer seats available to purchase. However, as it is located up two flights of stairs above the Orchestra, it may not be suitable for all patrons with limited mobility.

Left Mezzanine

The Left Mezzanine comprises seven rows from A to G, with two Boxes to the side. Seats are odd-numbered from 1 to 25, although most rows are slightly shorter. Views are best from the inside of the Left Mezzanine, which sits more centrally in relation to the stage. By contrast, double-digit seats at the far side and in the Boxes are angled, and stage right is obstructed from here. Overall, sightlines are mainly good from front to back, with a good rake which slightly compromises legroom; taller patrons should choose an aisle seat to avoid discomfort. Prices in the Left Mezzanine are highest in the front rows, with good value options a little further back.

Right Mezzanine

The Right Mezzanine has seven rows from A to G, with two Boxes to the side. Seats are even-numbered from 2 to 26 at most, with the best views from single-digit seats closer to the inside. At the far side and Boxes, seats above 16 are more angled, with some movement near stage left (your right) obstructed. Sightlines across the Right Mezzanine are generally very good, however, with a decent rake to avoid too many heads in the way. The best options for extra legroom are on the inside aisle, with mid-row space a little tight. Prices across the Right Mezzanine are more expensive at the front, with good value options in the back rows.

Center Mezzanine

There are eight rows in the Center Mezzanine from AA to P, and seats increase from 101 to 112, left to right. This is the best overall area to sit in the Mezzanine, with every row facing directly above the stage. The best views are across row A, but a good rake means theatergoers in other rows usually won’t be negatively affected by the heads of those in front. Taller patrons should definitely opt for an aisle seat for more comfort and space, with either side a good choice in the Center Mezzanine. Rows A and B in this section are considered premium for the whole theater, with prices to reflect. The cheapest seats are in rows G and H.

SeatPlan’s best views of the stage

Rows A and B in the Center Mezzanine are ideally placed for impressive overhead views of the stage, and many theatergoers prefer this elevated position to the back half of the Orchestra.

Best legroom seats

Like many Broadway venues, there isn’t a lot of room to stretch out in the James Earl Jones Theatre Mezzanine. Anyone needing extra legroom or space should choose an aisle seat, therefore.


• The Balcony overhang at row B doesn’t affect views
• The best seats are in the Center Mezzanine, row A
• Aisle seats are the best option for anyone needing extra legroom
• There are some good value seats in rows G and H


Premium front row seats in the Mezzanine start at a similar price to the cheaper Orchestra seats, with prices gradually dropping in the back rows and at either side, where views are less central. There are some good options for saving a bit of money in the back rows.


The bar is down two flights of stairs, in the theater lobby. Drinks and snacks can be expensive however, so consider saving money with a drink elsewhere.


Restrooms are down three flights of stairs, below the Orchestra. These serve the whole theater so will get busy during the intermission.
