View Seating Plan

Mezzanine guide

The Mezzanine is located directly above the Orchestra, seating approximately one third of the audience. Excellent views are on offer throughout this section, particularly for large-scale productions. Rows span A-H, becoming wider toward the rear of the section, and curve minimally around the stage, allowing for clear sight-lines.

A steep rake and staggered seating ensures minimal obstructions from those in front, whilst a low safety rail runs across the front of Row A but does not significantly obstruct the view. Four vertical aisles divide the seating into three blocks of similar size, all of which offer impeccable views of the stage.

There is no overhang in this section, and the only restrictions may occur from lighting rigs positioned in front of the seating. There are two large Boxes either side of front of the Mezzanine, with three smaller Boxes inside that each seat four people and offer side-angled views of the stage.

Mezzanine Front Left

Rows in the front-left area curve minimally to face the stage, allowing for clear sight-lines. Seats are higher-numbered here, reaching up to 314 and decreasing toward the centre of the row. A safety rail runs in front of Row A and does not directly obstruct the view, however lighting rigs that hang from the front of the section may restrict moments. Good legroom is available throughout this area, despite the steep rake, with additional comfort to be found in aisle seats. The Mezzanine Boxes are located on the left-hand side of the stage, facing the action at an angle.

Mezzanine Front Right

Rows in the front-right of the Mezzanine section curve slightly to face the stage, allowing for clear sight-lines. Seats are lower-numbered in this area, beginning at 101 and increasing toward the centre. A low-placed safety rail runs in front of Row A and does not directly obstruct the view, however lighting rigs in front of the section may restrict moments. Good legroom is available throughout this section, despite the steep rake, with additional comfort to be found in aisle seats. The Mezzanine Boxes are located on the right-hand side of the stage and face the action at an angle.

Mezzanine Centre

The centre of the Mezzanine offers some of the best views in the entire theatre, particularly for large-scale musicals. Seats face the stage head-on, and due to a steep rake and staggered seating, views are unobstructed throughout. Rows span A-H with centre section seats running from 201-215. A safety rail runs in front of Row A, but does not significantly hinder the view, although lighting rigs could potentially restrict moments. Legroom is smaller in the centre of Row A, due to the curve of the seating. Clear, panoramic views can be achieved from here.

Mezzanine Rear Left

Rows in the rear-left of the Mezzanine curve minimally to face the stage, allowing for clear sight-lines and minimal restrictions. Seats are higher-numbered in this area, reaching up to 314 and decreasing toward the centre of the row. A steep rake ensures that excellent views can be achieved from here, whilst staggered seating means that those in front will not block the view. Comfort is good throughout this section, and panoramic views of the stage are achievable.

Mezzanine Rear Right

Rows in the rear-right area are slightly angled to face the stage, allowing for clear sight-lines and minimal restrictions. Seats are lower-numbered in this area, beginning at 101 and increasing toward the centre. A decent rake allows for excellent, clear views, whilst staggered seating ensures that those in front will not block the view. Comfort is good throughout this section, and panoramic views of the stage are available here.

SeatPlan’s Best Views of the Stage

The entire Mezzanine offers some of the best views in the Elgin Theatre, but most specifically in the centre section: seats 201-215 of rows A-D. From here, you feel fully immersed in the action and can experience close-up detail. There are no obstructions in the Mezzanine, so this is a great option for large-scale musicals.

Best Legroom Seats

Legroom throughout the Mezzanine is generally good, with aisle seats offering slightly more space. Due to the steep rake and staggered seating, centre rows could potentially have less legroom, although it is still incredibly comfortable.

Tips

• A safety rail runs in front of Row A but does not restrict the view
• The Mezzanine is the best place to sit for large-scale musicals

Pricing

Seats throughout the Mezzanine are mostly priced the same, with no discrepancy between centre and end-of-row seats. Therefore, it is better to sit as centrally as possible in order to get the best value for money. Top price tickets are located in rows A-D, whilst the next price bracket down can be found in rows D-H, as seats are slightly more distant from the stage.

Bars

Bars, concession stands, and lounges are available on all levels of the theatre.

Toilets

Women’s and Men’s toilets can be found on this level.
