Take your kids and your grandparents because this musical is fantastic! It's hilarious and poignant throughout. I can't image there being a bad seat in the house; my only complaint is that the programs/snacks/drinks are a bit expensive at the theatre.

Take a look at theatremonkey for opinions on seats. Generally though all are pretty good and the restriction is a rail.
