Venue Overview

First opening in 1965, the Vivian Beaumont Theater is the only Broadway venue not located in the Theater District off Times Square. As part of the Lincoln Center, it is named after philanthropist Vivian Beaumont Allen, who donated $3 million to the development of a home for repertory theater at the arts complex. 

One of two Broadway venues with a thrust stage (the other being the Circle in the Square), the Beaumont features stadium seating and forms part of a wider group of performing arts spaces including the Claire Tow Theater, which is situated on its roof.

The Beaumont was originally the home of the Repertory Theater of Lincoln Center, but between 1978 and 1985 was rented out, or more often left largely unused. This changed in 1985 when the current management, Lincoln Center Theater, was established. 

Lincoln Center Theater is now America’s largest not-for-profit theater, and the Beaumont has enjoyed a new lease of life with several acclaimed productions opening at the venue. Recent hits include Bartlett Sher’s Tony Award-winning revivals of My Fair Lady and South Pacific, and the Broadway premier of War Horse.

Vivian Beaumont Theater Seating Chart

Good value seats

The Beaumont’s stadium-style seating means there are few notably obstructed seats. Rows D and E of Center Left and Center Right in the Loge offer clear but distant views, whilst seats at both far sides of the Orchestra may have some restrictions depending on set pieces, but are incredibly immersive.

Premium seats

Rows D - K of the central Orchestra sit far enough back for an overview but close enough to feel immersed in the drama of a show, and are popular choices for theatergoers. You may also save a little money sitting a couple of rows further back, with similar views. In the Loge, the front two rows in the center are considered some of the best in the house, offering elevated views of the stage.

This is the last row, but the layout is great and if anything it seems just the acoustics leave a little to be desired. Pleasantly surprised with the view. The seating arrangement is such that the person in the row ahead of you will not obstruct t... More

You're practically ON STAGE in this seat. It's a tad off to the side, but when the actors perform on the thrust, which for this show, they mostly did, the view is fine. The view through most of the show is on the side, but to see the performers' e... More
