Hello all! I was looking at seating for Aladdin and they have some cheaper rear balcony seats, but they're labeled as "Seat Behind Pipe" Could anyone tell me exactly how obstructed the view is? I was looking at seats Row H Seat 2 and Row J Seat 2. Both are ont the aisle.

I sat up in the balcony about a month ago. While I didnt sit behind the pipe, I did see it. I wouldnt sweat it, all the balcony seats looked great. It is a very thin pipe running from floor to ceiling in the balcony. It isnt big enough to block too much. The balcony view is good, and the price difference makes those seats worth it.
That being said, if it were me, I would just go for regular balcony seats. I sat allll the way right front row balcony, and those were perfect.

I sat next to the pipe in row J I believe. I wouldn't want to sit there-- there's little to no leg room, because of the pipe.

I went ahead and sprang for them. Couldn't pass up a chance to one of the hottest tickets on Broadway at that price! Thanks for the input!

I went to "Aladdin" on the day of, about three hours before showtime (before lottery time) and bought a partial view ticket for $49. It was balcony front row, far right.

The box in front blocked part of the stage - but honestly, it didn't bother me at all. Plus, I was on the aisle and liked the leg room.

From now on, I'll always go to the box office to buy something instead of other avenues. I got so many last-minute tickets in great locations at awesome prices, I don't know why I didn't before.

aren- thats crazy! I sat in those same exact seats front row balcony....but I paid full price online. Those wernt listed as partial view online. Not that I'm complaining though, I was more than happy about the view.

Thanks so much! I don't normally do this, but I may ask Jonathan Freeman to sign my DVD of the film if he decides to stage door. :)

yeah, jonathan was the only one to not come out to sign when I was there, but the rest of the cast said it was because he was getting interviewed for a documentary.
