I sat in that row last time I went, I want to say seat 9? Amazing view. Not too close at all.
If I had one nitpick it was that I couldn't see the Phantom when he first shows up in the mirror, because Chri

I TDF'ed the Oklahoma! matinee today and got a floor seat (FL 218). I don't think it's on there much but if you see it and you're interested in the show definitely grab it. Incredible seat.
I have walked past John Bolton three different times on the same block. Jay Armstrong Johnson in the Port Authority subway station. Harry Hadden-Paton walking toward the Beaumont stage door carrying a takeout bag.
I'm only in the city about one day a month, and not as knowledgeable about Broadway talent as I would like to be, so this is a lot for me...
Times Square TKTS questions Mar 10

The Lincoln Center location will let you buy tickets for Friday night AND the Saturday matinee, plus there's hardly ever a line. If they have what you want (they usually have the same options as Times Square, but check the app) and it's at all convenient to get yourself up there, I'd get tickets for the first two shows in one visit, then hit the fast-pass line at Times Square on Saturday afternoon.

Seconding the Ferryman. Also, the My Fair Lady revival is absolutely magnificent if you haven't already seen it.
Hopefully someone who is more familiar with the show can come along later and give you a more substantive answer, but I thought I'd weigh in as someone who was in your place a week ago. I went in almost completely blind (listened to a little of the OBC before buying a ticket) and had a lovely time. I felt like the characters could have been fleshed out a little more, but not knowing what was cut I don't know if I can attribute that to the stripped-down production or not. Overall I got

This. And if I'm about to start a new binder and go to a show with someone who doesn't want their Playbill, I'll cut off the logo on top and tape it neatly to the spine. Just to make them a little more festive and not just plain black..
Who is the phantom? Jan 23

Laird Mackintosh. Ben Crawford is in Baltimore (per both their Instagrams).
Usually when they have multiple Phantoms in one week it will be reflected in the Playbill, which is updated every week with who is going on when. But maybe it's less organized this time for some reason.

My advice would be to do TKTS if you are at all able. It's always there for around $80 and you will almost definitely get much better seats than these.
