Saw Hamilton--good view of the coreography. View not obstructed but post in balcony just to the left. Good acoustics. A bit far away for viewing expressions but worth it to see a great show. Quick access to restrooms and drinks

The front end of the stage is ever so slightly cut off, but you only miss one brief moment. Overall, you get a really clear view of the full stage.

You can see the majority of the stage, minus the very back of the stage (at least for the book of mormon's set up). The main positive of this row in general is that there is no one behind you so you can lean as far forward as you want

As the picture shows, the mezzanine hangs over the dress circle, so you can just see the tops of the performers' heads when they are on the upper level of the stage for Hamilton. This isn't really a problem since most of the action is on the main floor.

Fantastic seats! Complete view of entire stage, close enough to experience, but no worries about tall people in front. Also, probably wouldn't recommend anything past about the 4th row in the dressing circle, but the first two are arguably the best in the house.

Good seats, with limited view of the upper walkway and no view of the left upper walkway (I had to lean down to take this picture to get the walkway in the shot). Anything behind Row E would be very difficult to see the walkway at all, even leaning down

View was partially obstructed from Mezzanine overhang and also obstructed by taller patrons in previous row. I found it necessary to lean to the side for much of the show to see the stage.

Seat wasn't bad as far as distance, but due to overhang from Mezzanine above, the view of the upper walkways are obstructed. When actors utilize these walkways, all you can see are their feets and legs up to their knees. We also needed to lean left or right and also sit tall to see around people in row in front of us.

This seat wasn't perfect, but I definitely still loved the show. Sometimes the stuff going on up too was cropped, so I slumped down in my seat to see the action and the person in front of me was leaning way forward, obstructing my vision.

It's not the greatest. It really depends on the height of ther person in front of you. and you can't see above chest level of anyone on the upper walkway.
