Buying tickets to The Cripple of Inishmaan now and was wondering if anyone has sat in the center row A? Is there a high bar or speakers or anything that would obstruct my view? Wondering if I should do that or row B.

Sorry I meant BALCONY, not mezzanine.

I actually purchased Row A and where I have never sat in that row I find the balcony at the Cort to have great sightlines.. Any input on this question would be appreciated so I know what I am in for for that row as well

The Cort Balcony is great. Not sure about a bar in front of the first row, but I sat a few rows back for both FENCES and VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE and had a wonderful view for both shows.

Excellent I went with center row B just in case there's a bar since I figured row B is the safer pick.

Good to hear after the horrible experience I had in row A of the Lyceum balcony.

Row A in the Belasco balcony isn't so hot either! At the Cort I ended up getting mezzanine tickets to Inishmaan because I was afraid, but it's nice to know the balcony is fine.
