Venue Overview

The Music Box Theatre opened in 1921 through the combined efforts of producer Sam H. Harris and songwriter Irving Berlin, as a venue for The Music Box Revue. After a long history of shared ownership, it joined The Shubert Organization’s portfolio permanently in 2007. Well-loved for its charming Georgian-inspired design (by architect Charles H. Crane), the Music Box Theatre is decorated with columns above the doors outside, and attractive accents bordering the entrance and Boxes inside. It is best known, however, for its intimate and cozy atmosphere which works wonderfully for dramas – although its name nods to its musical origins.

After four years of The Music Box Revue, the Music Box Theatre’s program started to diversify, and shows including Merrily We Roll Along (1934), Pinter’s The Homecoming (1967), Les Liaisons Dangereuses (1987, starring Alan Rickman and Lindsay Duncan) and Blood Brothers (1993) have all spent time in the intimate venue. More recently, the theater has seen a number of successful London transfers, from One Man, Two Guvnors (2012) to King Charles III (2015).

Seats

With a capacity of around 1,025, the Music Box Theatre is considered a smaller venue in Broadway. Its seating chart is split between a slightly larger Orchestra on the ground floor and a Mezzanine above. Each has three sections: Left, Right and Center. Side-facing Boxes are on either side of the auditorium, along with standing space at the back. Views from both main sections are generally very good, thanks to the theater’s smaller size, but seats further to the side are more partial view than those facing directly in front of the stage. The Mezzanine in particular has many opportunities for affordable seating that don’t sacrifice a good sightline.

Tips

• Children under four are not permitted into the theater
• Step-free access to wheelchair and transfer seating in the Orchestra
• Coat check on lower level
• Refreshments can quickly add up; consider a post-show drink elsewhere

Good value seats

Anyone on a budget has plenty of options at the Music Box Theatre; there are few truly bad seats, so choosing the cheaper back rows won’t be too much of a compromise. For those with a bit more money to spend, rows M-O in the Center Orchestra cost less than premium and afford excellent views. Rows D-G in the Center Mezzanine are further examples of good value seats at the Music Box Theatre.

Premium seats

The best seats in the house are Center Orchestra towards the front. In particular, rows E-L are just the right distance for a comfortable, comprehensive yet detailed view of the show. Row A of the Mezzanine is also a premium location for patrons wanting a more elevated position to get immersed in a drama or musical.

This might seem very far to the side but it’s a completely unobstructed view in a fairly comfortable seat. More
