Front Mezzanine guide
The Front Mezzanine has around 170 seats elevated above the Orchestra, split into three sections with aisles between and extending just five rows back (A to E).
The Front Mezzanine benefits from its smaller size and lack of Balcony overhang in the back; views in all five rows are good. This is especially evident in the Center Front Mezzanine where good value seats are available in rows C and D. Seats at the far sides are more angled to the stage and therefore offer more restricted views, but a good rake ensures patrons can see over the rows in front for relatively clean sightlines. The best views are from rows A and B, although a safety bar in front of row A may cut into the stage at times.
With tight space for taller patrons, the best legroom in the Front Mezzanine is on aisle seats. The extra comfort is offset by a restricted view on the far sides of the Left and Right Front Mezzanine, however.
The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre Front Mezzanine has three aisle transfer seats available to purchase. However, as it is located upstairs, one level above the Orchestra, it may not be suitable for all patrons with limited mobility.
Left Front MezzanineThis section comprises odd-numbered seats in the range of 1 to 19. Rows run from A to E, and the best views are from single-digit seats in rows A and B, which have decent elevated positions that are less angled towards the stage. The safety railing in front of row A cuts across sightlines slightly, however. Good value seats are in the back three rows, where a decent rake means patrons in front shouldn’t block the view too badly. For those wanting more legroom the best options are aisle seats, in particular on the inside; sitting on aisle seats at the extreme ends of rows will mean a restricted view of the stage. Seats in the back row and extreme side cost less, with prices increasing the closer patrons get to front and center.
Right Front MezzanineThe Right Front Mezzanine has five rows from A to E, with even-numbered seats starting at 2 on the inside and reaching as high as 20 on the far side. Like the Left Front Mezzanine, extreme side and corner seats have partially restricted views. The first choice for extra legroom should be inside aisle seats, therefore. The best views are from single-digit seats in rows A and B, although from row A, shorter patrons may find the safety rail cuts across their sightlines a little. Further back, the section’s rake elevates each row for clean sightlines in rows C to E. Prices are higher in the front rows, and decrease towards the back and outer sides.
Center Front MezzanineIn the Center Front Mezzanine, all seats face directly above the stage, with desirable views across all five rows. The front two rows, A and B, offer the best overall views. From these excellent seats, the only minor restriction is the safety railing’s height. The best legroom is from aisle seats, and both ends of the Center Front Mezzanine still enjoy a head-on, detailed look at the stage. Further back, rows C to E represent good value seats thanks to their raked position above patrons in front. Prices in the Center Front Mezzanine are highest in rows A and B, which are premium seating areas. In the back rows, prices are a little cheaper.
SeatPlan’s best views of the stageRows A and B of the Center Front Mezzanine are considered some of the best in the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. With elevated yet detailed views of the stage, they offer the perfect vantage point to enjoy the full spectacle of a powerful musical.
Best legroom seatsFor taller patrons or anyone wanting extra space, the best seats for extra legroom are on inside aisles. These match comfort with premium views down to the stage.
Tips• The best views are from sought-after rows A and B in the Center Front Mezzanine
• For more legroom, try inside aisle seats to avoid a restricted view
• A safety bar can obstruct views in row A for shorter patrons
• Prices are cheaper at the far edges but must be balanced with restricted views
• Good value seats are in rows C and D of the Center Front Mezzanine
PricingThe front two rows of the Center Front Mezzanine seating are most expensive for their direct and usually clear views. As it is a small section, the Front Mezzanine’s prices don’t vary massively after this, although the back and sides are a little cheaper.
The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre Mezzanine bar serves patrons before performances and during the intermission, with other convenient options down one level near the Orchestra. Drinks with secure lids can be taken back to seats, but patrons should check their budget - prices can quickly add up
The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre has restrooms on the Mezzanine level, although queues may be long during the intermission. Alternative restrooms are two floors down, below the Orchestra.
An accessible restroom is available on the Orchestra level.
