Is it better to be center under the Mezzanine and father back? Or is it better to be closer to the stage but more off to the side?

Thanks!

I think that's more personal preference than right or wrong answer.

For Beautiful, my perception (based on barely reading anything, btw, since I don't saturate myself with opinions beforehand, once I know a show is good and worth seeing I buy a ticket) is that it's more about the peson playing Carole so I'd rather be close and see her. Whereas a major choreography/set show, I might prefer to go back further and be more in the center.
Now t/d/b/a haterobics on here.

^ Beautiful is not in the Airlines...

If you're going to see Machinal, I would pick center orchestra and further back, but both are fine.
