The Mezzanine hangs above the Orchestra in the Marquis Theatre, and is the smaller section of the two with around 560 seats. The section is divided into Left, Right and Center blocks with aisles in between, and rows stretch from A at the front to L at the rear. There is no accessible seating in this section and the Mezzanine is accessed by stairs only.
Like the Orchestra, Marquis Theatre Mezzanine seating benefits from a newer design for more comfortable seats, although legroom in the middle of rows may still be a little tight. Views across the Mezzanine are generally good, although there are areas patrons may want to avoid at first, such as the far sides. From these seats, the corresponding side and corner of the stage is blocked due to the angle. The back seats are also less desirable because of their distance, although the section has a very good rake which helps sightlines remain clean even in the cheapest back rows.
The best seats are in the more expensive Center Mezzanine, and row A is incredibly popular thanks to its excellent elevated view of the stage. From these premium seats, prices gradually become cheaper in the back and corners.
Left MezzanineThe Left Mezzanine comprises 12 rows of seats running odd-numbered from 1 on the inside to as high as 35 on the outside. Extra legroom is best on aisles, although seats by the far aisle offer a more partial view of the left-hand side of the stage; action on the side and corner will be blocked. The best views are from rows A-D, specifically in single-digit seats. These seats have a clearer and more central view of the stage than anywhere else in the section. A decent rake helps ensure those sitting in the back rows can see clearly over other patrons’ heads. The cheapest seats are at the rear and far corners, where the performance can feel distant, and the most expensive are in the desirable single-digit seats towards the front.
Right MezzanineThe Right Mezzanine has 12 rows of seats running odd-numbered from 2 to a maximum of 36 by the far aisle. Extra legroom is best on aisles, although seats closer to the right-hand aisle offer a more partial view of the corresponding side of the stage. The best seats in the Right Mezzanine are in rows A-D, specifically in single-digit seats. These have a clearer and more central view of the stage than anywhere else in the section, although a decent rake helps ensure those sitting in the back rows can see clearly over other theatergoers’ heads. The cheapest seats are in the back row and far corners, where the performance can feel distant, and the most expensive are in the desirable single-digit seats towards the front.
Center MezzanineThe Center Mezzanine comprises 11 rows from A to M, with seats moving from 101 to 118 left to right. Legroom is better than average mid-row, but taller patrons should opt for an aisle seat where possible for extra space. The best views are from row A, which has excellent, unobstructed sightlines of the stage from an elevated position. By contrast, the back few rows feel relatively distant with less detail available. However, there is a very good rake in the section which ensures a clear view from any position in the Center Mezzanine and there are many opportunities for good value seats in rows H-K. Seats in the front rows are priced similarly to the Center Orchestra middle and back. The cheapest seats in the Center Mezzanine are along the back rows.
SeatPlan’s best views of the stageRow A of the Center Mezzanine is sometimes preferred over any Orchestra seat. Its unobstructed, elevated and sweeping views of the stage are very desirable for enjoying musicals in particular. Rows B-D are also excellent options thanks to their elevated position.
Best legroom seatsThe Marquis Theatre has above-average legroom and comfort thanks to its relative youth as a Broadway venue. However, as always aisle seats are the safest bet for best legroom seats.

PricingThe Mezzanine is cheaper on average than the Orchestra, although premium seats in the Center Mezzanine start similarly to mid-priced seats in the Center Orchestra. Prices decrease towards the back and sides of the section, with the cheapest seats in the Marquis Theatre in rows L and M.
The Marquis Theatre has one bar on the Mezzanine level, with covered drinks allowed back to seats. If this is busy, there are three bars downstairs on the Orchestra level.
