Seat about level with the top of proscenium, and has wide ledge requiring you to lean forward to view front of the stage. Got the seat for a reduced rate so OK with selection, but would have been highly disappointed if it were a full price ticket.
Tuesday Evening 10/22/19
Not great, can't see the front of the stage.
View is significantly restricted by row in front and pole, despite there being no partial view warning when buying. There is no one behind or directly to the left, so I stood for most of the play. Standing room in Orchestra is much better value. I am 5'10
The pole is an annoyance and the seat is too far back to see the action on the front of the stage. Avoid it if you can. Also, no elevator for mezz or balcony.
Had to lean to see things. Center is better than side for this show.
Back row. Had to lean to see some portions. Overall good seat!
A little hard to see the very front of the stage.
For the price, you can't do much better! The balcony feels very close, and, from the front row, it's easy to see facial expressions without binoculars. If you're short, get a cushion to help see over the ledge better. Highly recommended!
EXCELLENT VIEW!!!! Very little leg room though. Despite being on the third level you dont feel distant from the show and see faces clearly. Sometimes have to lean forward to see action at very front of stage.
It was a good seat! The seats are very squished with little leg room and you occasionally had to lean forward to see the front of the stage but otherwise they were great!!
You occassionally have to sit forward or lean a bit over the rail when there is action in the front of the stage.
Last row, right under lighting board. Extremely tight and if you are tall, you can not sit here comfortably.
Really not a bad seat in the house...unless you have very long legs.
Very clear view, however it was like watching the show in miniature. You had to lean over the edge to see the front of the stage. Great seats for the price point though.
The seat was super high up and we were the last row. You had to lean to the front of the stage, but there are only two seats in the row and you are close to the bar and concessions!
Recommended! The legroom is small, the seat sits high (I'm 5' 4" only my toes touched the floor) but leaning forward a little you can see the full stage and passerelle. Mezzanine and Balcony are tiered so tightly that you do not see anyone below you when the house lights go out. And Bette is amaaaazing!
High and steep. This is the last row that backs up to spotlight booth but there are wing seats behind and to the left so you can't stand up without obscuring someone's view behind you. There is a stage extension around the orchestra pit that is obscured by the front of the mezzanine. Plus there's a pole that obscures the left side of the stage. Don't pay any more than you have to for these seats.
High up (3rd balcony) but no obstructed views.
I would definitely sit in this section again, excellent view of the stage!
Fantastic seats! When a performer was at the front of the proscenium you need to lean forward to see them, but that is hardly an issue.
CENTER BALCONY Row B, Seats 111-112, Seat 112 is 3 seats off aisle
This seat was fine, but it is in the very last row of the theatre. You can see the entire show, but you have to lean forward sometimes to see the front of the stage. I would spend the extra money to get closer next time.
Sometimes felt like I had to lean forward to see past the railing in the front (but I'm 5'0"). Also, the stairs down to the first row are STEEP. If you are afraid of heights or get vertigo at all, I'd avoid the front sections of the top balcony.
Great view for $49 dollars! You have to lean a bit
Terrible view. Can’t even see the bottom of the curtain between the heads in front of you, much less when trying to bob and weave between the people in front of you.
Obstructed view. Had I known, I would have chosen other seats. No notice was given.
I'm short and the ledge blocked my view of the front of the stage. Otherwise good. Very tight legroom.
Pole and speaker are right in front of seat, but view is still pretty great considering.
Rush ticket. Terrible view! Completely obstructed, end up standing up the whole time and even then sight lines are poor.
The seat was amazing! You could see everything perfectly!
Don’t pay more than Rush tickets. Can’t see stage by sitting in the seat. Hello Dolly was great!
Good view, could see the entire stage & Show with all actors & performances. Would not recommend farther back in Balcony as action in front of the orchestra pit would be missed.
Really not a bad view for balcony seats. You can see most of the stage (missing a tiny sliver of the top parts of the set). The support pole does block your view a little bit, but not bad from this seat (would probably be worse from closer).
Wonderful seat. It's on the end, and there is nobody directly behind you so there's no way to obstruct anyone.
Matilda The musical on Broadway
Very cramped seats with little leg room and an extremely pitched elevation that makes you feel as if you could tumble down to the orchestra at any moment. However, the incline allows for a full, unobstructed view of the stage.
Missed a decent amount of performance at front of stage
Here is a closer pic of the annoying grill or rail that bisected part of the view. Thankfully the stage was large and went far back, so the view was obstructed for a relatively small part of the stage.
This seat has a good view of the stage for Orchestra,except for a "grill" or "rail" at the bottom of the aisle. Orchestra is very steep. Saw someone fall! Tiny space to walk (sideways!) in rows. It was also very hot and stuffy up there. (Jan. 4, 2019)
Awesome balcony seats! You had to lean a bit to see action at the very front of the stage, but it wasn't bad at all. You could see everything clearly, including facial expressions. Would recommend!
Very comfortable and mostly clear view. Not a bad view from the balcony. Only miss a little bit of what happens on top of set and what happens on far right.
missed some action at the top of the store set, and Dolly's big entrance to the restaurant, but great angle on any action on the rest of stage
Great seat. Besides the small pole on the ledge.
Great view, could see everything on stage but had to lean to see things on the front runway, which was often
Front of the Balcony.
Little leg room especially with people next to you.
Had to lean forward to catch some of the action at the front of the extended stage.
Beware if you are short (I am ~5'2"): the center balcony seats are high off the ground. My feet did not come close to touching and it's rough on your legs for almost 3 hours. Other than that, it's fine, especially for the price. Mostly full view. Not a perfect angle for the very front part of the stage (in front of the orchestra pit) but you should get most of it.
Just about as good as it gets in the side balcony...
$51 ticket from TodayTix. Not a great seat, but luckily the show wasn't sold out and most people in my row moved during intermission
$59 seat in the the last row of the balcony, sold at the box office each day, after the SRO tickets are sold out. Considered obstructed view, but, if you stand, the view is excellent. If you want to see the faces up close, bring binoculars!
Due to the relatively small size of the theater, even this high up seat had a clear, close, and intimate view of the stage. Not bad seating by any means.
Box D is located on the right/balcony level. While you can't see anything on the right side of the stage, for this play the majority of action was center and stage left, so it really wasn't an issue.
Great seat. Only thing you couldn't see were the couple points actors entered through the aisles, but you don't miss anything otherwise. Old theater so not much legroom.
Excellent seat, front row, dead center of the Mezzanine.
Not bad distance from stage but balcony ceiling partly obstructs top view.
Seat was reasonably comfortable, not a lot of elbow room but slightly more legroom than some of the older theaters. Great view. Sound was also very good.
Great view, except I'm 5'3 and had trouble seeing center stage over lady in front of me.
Incredible seats for a wildly entertaining production of one of the most classic musicals ever made!
Just off center - a great seat for full stage view.
Small rows but it's an old theatre. What can you do...
Great seat - perfect view
Best seats in the house. Loved it and we were slightly raised to be able to look down on the stage.
Excellent seats!! Front and centre, in mezzanine so we were looking down at the stage.
Center mezzanine on the aisle but high up and a little difficult to see around high heads of hair in front of me ... especially during standing ovations but when tickets are impossible to get you take what you can get and enjoy every moment!
Dead center - perfect view
The picture doesn't do it justice.
Front Row Mezzanine...
Best Seats in the House!
Best seats in the house!
Great seats! Can see everything perfectly.
Good seat if you can get it for $59 with broadwaybox discount. I wouldn't recommend going too far back from this (one row behind is fine) as the overhang gets quite bad. Beware if you are short, the incline isn't great
Wonderful view! I've seen this show 8 times from many different seats and this is one of my favorites. Close enough to really see faces but elevated as to see the staging and wonderful choreography
Amazing view, best seats I've ever sat in
People’s heads are more obstructive than the ceiling’s overhang.
The overhang is annoying but people’s heads are the biggest view blockers.
Would have preferred 1st row of mezzanine, but these were still good seats, could see the actor's expressions and loved it.
It’s not a terrible view. The people sitting in the box obstruct the left side. I would have rather sat on the right side because a lot of action happens on the left side and I had to lean across my girlfriend to see some moments. Good leg room on the end.
Didn't sit here, just checked out the view for a friend. Considered partial view, but I don't think much would be missed.
great view of the stage, could see all the action
The balcony overhang is very low and blocks the top of the view, but besides the sets there was only about a minute of action that happened that couldn't be seen.
Partial view, upper part of the stage is cut off
Awesome seats with a full view of the stage. Concessions up just a few rows.
front row of section. You miss some view of those actors on the very far right but it's inconsequential to the story
Could not see the far right side
Excellent view of the stage.
The barrier does not block any action. It's a great seat.
Fantastic seats for the price! Close enough to see facial expressions. Beautiful theatre in the heart of Broadway.
Great seat in the mezz, not blocked by the balcony overhang at all. A little further back but you can still see faces. Be careful not to go much further back in this theater bc the balcony pitch gets really steep.
Labeled “Partial View”, and you can’t see the back right corner of the stage, but the central action was plainly visible.
Comfortable seat. Generally good view except for the stage far right. Sound was good. Not roomy but descent legroom.
Great seat to see everything. Really great overall view. I'd have liked to be a little closer to see faces, but you still got a great view of it all and could see most facials.
Perfect seat!! Not too far over at all
Nice aisle seat. Row F is the last row in the mezzanine where the balcony overhang doesn't obstruct the proscenium. Recommended.
Couldn't see the right side of the stage during the dining scene.
Great view of the entire show - balcony overhand not in sight line!
Excellent seats! Full view of stage.
Great seats during Broadway week
Slight obstruction with overhand but you can see all details of the set (including light fixtures that descend from fly loft) and all the action. Good value! However, there is a vent nearby and I was freezing the whole first act. Bring a wrap.
Real first row. Spectacular view that fully immerses you into the production. Lots of leg room.
This is actually the third row. Perfect seat. Nothing blocks the view and close enough to see everything. I can see some people preferring two rows back.
Amazing seats! You can clearly see everything.
The mezzanine overhang blocks the very, very top of the stage but it does not block any scenery or stage action. An amazing view of the stage and solid leg room. A great seat for the price. Don’t miss this show!
Fabulous seat on the aisle since seats are a bit tight. Great view-even though person in front of me was a bit tall.
Excellent seat. Perfect distance and view from the stage.
Great view, closer to stage than I thought it would be.
I turned around to left to take view of box seat and mezzanine and balcony,which overhang almost half way over orchestra. I'm in 3rd row(almost too close) but perfect seat, A little further back better to appreciate the whole set & ensemble dancing.
Three rows from stage, (row B is first row in center orchestra.) 111 is four seats from aisle (almost center)rnPlenty of leg room. Great seat to see stars up close & facial expressions & detail. Two rows back in F better for set &rnensemble dancing. 7/11/17
Great seat for a perfect show, but 2 rows back and more center may be better for the dancing while still being close enough to see facial expressions.
In my opinion, row G center is the best seat in the house. Actors frequently walk right in front of you which was very exciting.
Great view! It was amaizing!
First row of theater, second to last seat on left. Rear and left stage partially blocked but still a decent reduced price seat. The aisle seat to left (seat 11) is much more limited view.
First row of the theater. Last seat on the left. View of rear and left stage completely blocked by bench and guitar player sitting entire show. Not recommended, although seat 9 next to it was improved view and ok.
My favorite theatre on broadway. Feels big but plays intimate. Stay away from Balcony - views can get steep.
A little far back, but still a great view!
Great seats purchased at the last minute!
Being this close is amazing, but it's far over to the side. Also, it's not graded at all, so it's hard to see over people.
This a great seat if you are 6' tall because it's hard to see over the people in front of you. You will be sitting sideways for most of the show. Some views were obstructed. Pros: Very close and saw Bernadette wink at me!
Favorite seat in the Shubert Theatre. Saw Matilda The Musical 3 times and this is where I loved to sit
Couldn't Be Better!
It's a partial view seat and boy do they mean it
Last row, but still excellent view
Good seats.second to Last row in orchestra. Bette Midler is fantastic. rnTight theater. rn
photo was taken standing up
Very good seat for the price, but limited legroom. If you opt to buy a ticket on the side orchestra, the left side seems a bit better than the right one.
Perfect seats, so close and just slightly off to the side. Didn't miss anything.
Decent view, if you don’t have someone tall in front of you. I’m not short and don’t usually experience this, so the theater must have poor grading. I saw about 50% of the actors’ performances.
Great view. Aisle seat. Easy bathroom access.
You can see alright from the side. You can still see all of the show.
Very good seats and show
Fantastic seat! The orchestra has a surprisingly nice rise, so heads in the row before you are lower than in most other theaters.
It was a great seat, but we missed out a little in the hat shop scene. We couldn’t see the closet and in the harmonia gardens scene we couldn’t see the table where David Hyde pierce sits on our side of the theatre. I would totally reccomend!
This is sold as a "partial view" seat - but really the only thing you miss is during ACT II at Harmonia Gardens there is a bit with Vandergelder at a table you cannot see. Otherwise a GREAT SEAT!
Last row orch... standing room at your head
Had a perfect view of the Stage and had fabulous and fun time seeing the show.
Great view, with only a little masking on the nearest side of the stage. Brilliant show. Midler is fabulous!
Definitely recommend! The stage is pretty low, so you don't have to look up like yiu would think. And sometimes the actors make eye contact with you:))Some of them recognized me from the front row at the stage door and it was really cool! xD
Great view. It's partially obstructed, but I could see most of the staging and didn't miss anything.
Close, but on the side!
Another view during intermission. Great! The photo doesn't do it justice.
We had a great view of everything. Matilda was fantastic. During the show the actors frequently run down the aisles so it was fun for my daughter to be there. I gave it 5 stars because these seats were a great value for the price.
This seat was right in front of the speakers so it did get a bit loud. Being eye level with the stage, you can't see some of the details on the stage. A staircase is to the right of this seat, so actors do walk by. The swings go right over your head(:

Unobstructed view from standing room row. No one behind you but house left is near stairwell where the cast exit and enters which light of door open/closing can be distracting at times. For $39 I can't complaint too much!
Spot 18 was near edge. With slope of the theatre the ledge was at about 4.5 feet high. If you are 5' or under it may be uncomfortable because you can't rest your arms (I spent most shoe with my chin on the ledge) but still unobstructed view
Great views. Can see all action on stage. This was a rush ticket location.
Standing Room ticket from the rush line
I definitely recommend this view. I could see everything except the very top of the stage where no action took place.
Excellent unobstructed view on aisle. Large post to left means no person next to you.
When shows are sold out- standing row is available. This is the view. No chair is available.
A great view, you feel very close up and it's not too far off to the side. Like all the standing room locations you miss seeing a single scene that takes place on a platform above the stage, other than that an incredible view especially for the price! Standing is perfectly comfortable with the wall and it's plush topper in front of you, and it is a decent height for anyone 5' I'd estimate.
Got standing room tickets, top part of the stage was cut off but it was worth it because the people a foot in front of us probably paid over $100!
