These thin poles appear to be the obstructions, in the Obstructed View tickets here.

It was difficult to see action at the very front of the stage once people were sitting in front of us.

Far away but an amazing view of the stage. Didn't miss a single piece of the action.

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

A little hard to see the very front of the stage, but otherwise a much better view than I was expecting. The show was amazing!

Could not see the front part of the stage. It is angled in a way were you have to sit leaning forward to see above the person's head in front of you. Better view in first two rows of balcony.

Honestly these seats were just fine. Probably 90% of the set was in our view and we could always see the actors. For the price difference I think these seats were 100% worth it.

I was told the view might be bad, but it was fine. You couldn't see some parts of the top part of the stage, but that was not a problem. These seats are just fine.

These are obstructed view tickets, under $100, face value. Good view of the stage, but absolutely no view of the actors when they're performing on the rafters because of the balcony overhang. I was ok with that for the price.

This was taken from lower than eye level. Even bending down, I couldn't see the catwalk.

This is the view when someone sits in the row in front of you. Unless you lean to the left, leaning to the right to view the stage only puts the column in your view.

If you sit in the mezzanine, make sure you sit in the first 8-9 rows, so you don't have an obstructed view from the balcony above.

Good seats, minor obstruction for maybe one or two times lines on left of stage, but otherwise good.

There were hand railings against the wall. The far left use of the stage was blocked. However, 90+ percent was totally clear - it was great to see Hamilton

Very good view of most of the stage. Very very edge of stage right was obscured (for Hamilton, this meant we couldn't see the stairs on the side and the few pieces of action that happen on or under them) but it was not an impediment to overall enjoyment.

Great seats! We could see everything! The action on the top of stage left was just barely in view. Great view of the choreography and lighting, and it's not so far away that you can't tell what's happening or who's talking.

Anything from the middle of the upper stage, and then going toward stage left, was not visible, and the far quarter of stage left was also not visible. However, other than that, the seats were great.

Spent a lot of money and time researching to try to find an unobstructed view in this horrible theater, and this happened. This guy wasn't even that tall. I would've rather taken a seat behind a pole, avoid this spot at all costs.

A great experience. This is the front row of the theater, and we could see all of the actors' expressions and costumes really well. You do, however, miss action at the back of the stage, and any stage-level props (desks, benches, etc.)

Very close to the stage, you can see the actors very closely. You only lose a fraction of stage left. Speakers right above so sound is also good! Would definitely by this obstructed-view again

Most of the time you can't see anyone who's on the upper right balcony because that big speaker is blocking it. That only happens maybe three or four times during the show, though, so other than that, it's an excellent seat.

Excellent seat considering it's labeled "limited view." Ocassionally you miss action that takes place in the upper right of the stage, but otherwise it's worth it to sit close enough to see characters expressions. Incredible show

From this seat, the balcony shielded the view of the second level of the set. The pole did block some of the performance from view. I thought the show was still great and glad to have the experience.

This seat is below the stage floor, so it was difficult to see the action at the back half of the stage. But it was still great to be so close to the actors.
