Venue overview

A comparatively new venue for Broadway, the Marquis Theatre is nestled on the third floor of the stunning Marriott Marquis Hotel on West 46th Street. Despite its youth, a variety of musicals have made their mark at the venue since it opened in 1986.

When the Marriott Marquis was built on the site of several demolished theaters, developer John Portman was asked to incorporate a new venue into his designs. With high ceilings, modern acoustics and comfortable seats (not to mention extra restrooms), the Marquis Theatre is a thoroughly modern addition to Broadway.

Since opening with Me and My Girl (1986), the Marquis Theatre has seen a host of notable productions including Gypsy (1991), Annie Get Your Gun (1999), Thoroughly Modern Millie (2002) and Evita (2012). In recent years, crowd-pleasers including The Illusionists (2014, 2018) have continued to draw audiences to the Marquis Theatre.

Seating

With a capacity of around 1,611, the Marquis Theatre seating chart is divided into an Orchestra and Mezzanine, with both sections subdivided into Left, Right and Center. In the Orchestra, views are generally good, with the best sightlines in the Center Orchestra, set a little way back from the stage. In the Mezzanine, a decent rake ensures views are mainly clear from front to back, with premium seats in row A of the Center Mezzanine. In both sections, the back rows are more distant with less detail, and seats at either side are more likely to be angled, with restricted sightlines to either side of the stage.

Tips

• There is no cloakroom; large bags, shopping and luggage won’t be allowed in
• Bag checks are in operation; leave plenty of time to reach your seat
• Wheelchair seating is in the Orchestra; a lift from the hotel lobby is available
• There are four bars and four restroom areas in theater
• Plan time to navigate through crowds visiting the hotel’s other amenities

Good value seats

The Marquis Theatre has a few good value options. Center Orchestra rows J and K are cheaper than premium but remain a good distance from the stage for picking up detail. The Center Mezzanine’s middle rows are similarly well-priced, with a rake that ensures sightlines are elevated. The back rows of the Center Mezzanine, although distant, also represent good value for those on a budget.

Premium seats

Premium seats at the Marquis Theatre are invariably located in the central sections. For patrons who prefer an elevated view of the stage, row A of the Center Mezzanine benefits from an excellent combination of detail and distance. On the ground level, rows C-H of the Center Mezzanine are similarly detailed, with an immersive yet comfortable position in front of the stage.

This is a fantastic seat! The rake in the orchestra is very good, so you have no heads in your sightline, meaning you have a perfect view of the whole stage. Sat here, you are close to the stage, but at the same time you see the whole of it, so you can... More

A perfect seat - as the orchestra is raked extremely well, you don't have any obstructions in your view. You are sat close to the stage and can see everything perfectly. The legroom is great and the seat is comfortable. More

A very low stage for this production (Tootsie) meant that even row C was just about eye level with the stage. The rows are well raked and actually stepped rather than on a slope, which also makes for a little extra legroom. Seats were fairly narrow though... More
