Nice seats. No overhang. Actually looks closer than the photo.

Center balcony seats have decent visibility at this theater.

This is 4 rows from the back of the center balcony. You won't miss anything going on on the stage and the price is right but I almost felt a little dizzy being so far back. There are far better seats in this venue but it is not terrible.

Said partially obstructed view but was great. I could not see the very left back corner of stage but was minimal for the price

Great "limited view" seats. No one in front, behind or near you. Like your own private section. Large speaker was in the way for some parts but center of stage is clearly visible.

I am tall so could see just fine, but could see how shorter people might have difficulty seeing the stage over the railing. I would recommend Row C as ideal. Loge are the best seats in the house.

Sorry that it's a little bit blurry! Don't let that detract you-- this seat was fabulous. I think the loge is the best place overall in this venue.

Good seats! Had to lean over a bit to see the Ringmaster interact with audience on the floor, but could see everything on stage perfectly.

Great Seats. Note that if you're in the row ahead of us, Row A, you may have a railing to look over, which is a bit forward of your seat.

Excellent seats. Even my 6 year old can see over railing. Rows in front of us might have issues.

Great view, except for action on the ramp added in front of the actual stage. I could see most of it, but missed a few moments.

Amazing seat, but VERY close. Almost too close if you like to be able to see the whole stage at once. I got this seat as a $25 rush ticket.

Perfectly centered, but pretty far back

The first thing I noticed about these seats was the lack of leg room. I incorrectly assumed that being in the front row would be spacious, but you are right up against a red curtained wall that separates your legs from the orchestra pit. (See pic) So it's a bit of a tight squeeze but once you're in, you have a fantastic view. If you love seeing set and costume details and facial emotions, the front row is for you. Because you are over to the side, you can see slightly in to the wings, but that didn't prove to be a distraction at all for us. (But I personally like seeing how things work) If you need leg room, I'd suggest going a few seats over and get the first row on the side.

Perfect seat, especially for a play like this. If you have the money, I can't recommend this seat enough!

I'm 6'2" & have a little room b/w my knees & the seat in front of me. I'm a plus size woman & my hips fit but there is not much excess room. Seats are cushy, comfy velvet. The balcony starts just behind Row M, i've got a view of the beautiful ceiling.

Small theatre - really not a bad seat even in the far back of the orhcestra section
