Is it worth getting the partial view seats AA5 and AA6. I'm coming from south africa and really want to see this show but budget is a big problem. I see these seats are selling for $59. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
You may be able to purchase from the theartre box office. We did purchase our tickets in advance in the mezzinine but the evening performane we attended in May there were many empty seats. For instance we were able to change our seats due to the excessive air conditioning (very cold) It was a wonderful show memorable singing from all the cast . Surprisingly only disapointment there are no Souvenire Programmes for sale for this great show.However there is a free playbill edition at the theartre.Enjoy your trip to New York
I would not pay premium prices for this show.
I would not risk or take a chance the view may be blocked at the far ends of the stage. What I would do is go directly to the box office and ask if they have any last minute cancellations or some special day of performance seats available. This is what I did, and I got a seat for $49 or $50 and sat in 7th or 9th row on the end seat! Ask the ticket seller to show you the seating chart and where the available seat is located. Maybe you will be lucky like I was! Good luck, and enjoy!
I may be wrong but I think the Orchestra seats you are considering are at the extreme right or left of the theater and the first row or two. You may be cut off from action on that end of the stage. You might consider seats in the from mezzanine section at either end. I believe the view is better and the cost is the same.
