I enjoyed Austin P. McKenzie in Spring Awakening, but I don't remember his voice being particularly strong. This is a role that requires solid technique and vocal stamina--McKenzie strikes me more as an actor who sings.
As others have said, avoid the "limited comfort" (no comfort is more accurate) and obstructed column seats at all costs. The regular obstructed view seats are definitely obstructed, but you still have a view of the stage. That said, unless you're shooting for a weekend performance, I would recommend trying rush or using the FUNSAVERS code. I have also seen performances for this engagement on Goldstar.
