Hi all,

I'm looking to go see All the Way before it wraps up at the end of the month, and I was just wondering if anyone had seen the show and sat in the rear mezzanine (it's at the Neil Simon, rear mezz is all I can afford unfortunately). Is it worth it? Any visibility problems? Should i sit in the second to last row in the center or the fourth to last row on either sides? Any help would be VERY appreciated.

I sat in the very last row of the rear mezz, and I did NOT like it. It was very far away, and it was actually kinda hard to hear the actors. It was also difficult to make out the actors' faces. And personally, being so far away from the stage makes it easy for me to space out, and lose interest in any show, but especially a 3 hour political drama.

Had a different experience. I was three rows from the last row in the balcony and was completely involved and engrossed by the play. One man's opinion-- but I think it's a work that will continue to resonate about one of the most important years in American history.

The seats are fine. You can see and hear. What will not be is close. All of this you already know.

Buy the ticket.

i was a few rows from the back and was not enjoying it that much. Moved by my friend in the front mezz at intermission and was engrossed and loved it. I didn't like the back. Found it hard to concentrate and really see that actors expressions. The Neil Simon is a pretty deep theater.

I know it's a different show but I saw Big Fish in the rear mezz (probably four or five rows from the back of the theater) and found the view to be fine. Nothing obstructed and I didn't feel too far away.

Similar for me! I moved to a box seat for the 2nd act was much more engaged and could hear much better. Am I the only one who had an issue with hearing their words from the back? Maybe I'm just bad at hearing.

Lately I have a feeling many shows are severely undermined.
