There's plenty of chili. During intermission the stage becomes the place where chili is served, cafeteria style. There are two main lines and it's a small enough theater that anyone can go get the chili. Its a pretty small cup. The corn bread is really good.

I sat on the floor on the extreme end farthest away from the horseshoe and to be honest I missed a lot because the backs of the characters were often turned. Also the placement of the mike is on the other end of the stage, so the rare times when the cast takes to the mike and starts belting I kept thinking how much better a seat closer to the center would be. 

Another warning: in the act 2 dream ballet if you're on the ends you get sprayed with dry ice. But overall there's not a bad seat in the theater and considering I picked up the tikcets 5 minutes before the show started at tkts not bad at all.

There is enough chili for everyone. The chili comes with cornbread and is a really nice treat.  Also the onstage serving adds a feeling of even more inclusiveness.  I was in row E in the 237-9, highly recommend this area as most of the action takes place directly in front of you and the projections still are very impactful.

Can anyone comment on the view from row K? I’m in K 108. I snagged the last “cheap”  (still $79 plus fees) seat that was available on the day I wanted to go as the reviews were coming in very hot. 

Also can anyone confirm the running time of the show? It says 2 hours and 45 minutes. I am thinking of seeing a show that starts 15 minutes after Oklahoma ends and not sure if it is possible. (Though according to google maps, the The Anne L. Bernstein Theater is a one minute walk away)

Are the table seats at CITS comfortable? Are the chairs cushioned, both on the seats and on the backs?

Just in case we end up going, what are people's experiences with the 400 section? Are they the worst seats in the house? Are you blocked off from parts of the show? Or are they basically fine, just with some cons? If you sit in the 400 section, are the odd or even sides better?

The chairs at the table seats are just folding chairs with a cushion on the bottom. Not sure about comfort level, we sat in regular seats.

I had a seat at a table and definitely started feeling the lack of cushioning in the backs. They arenít awful, and it was so fun being that close I think it was worth it, but the real seats look much more comfortable.

If I was being completely honest, I'd say the best seat for Oklahoma is at any other theater (yeah, we were among those who hated the show).

Whatever you do, avoid seat B105-- you'll be on floor level looking through the back of the double bass for the whole night (though you'll have a literal ringside seat to the most toe-tapping band on Broadway).

We sat in row C, seats 232-230 and I would highly recommend those seats, or seats in that general area. We entered the lottery, lost, and then bought them as lottery loser seats for a considerable discount from face value - I checked right after getting the loser email, and there were twenty or seats to choose from sprinkled all over the theater.

Our seats were very close to the center of the long side of the circle, which was a great spot for viewing the show in general, and excellent for almost every instance that two characters had a close-up conversation. We could also see the wall with the projections and the entrance on the opposite side of the stage just fine. 

We had no issue hearing the dialogue/lyrics over the band, and aside from the times the fellows next to me started foot stomping and conducting the music, it was an incredibly immersive seat. Since we were in the center of the row, we got up late at intermission and still got chili. But they did run out toward the end of the intermission, so if your heart's set on it, hop to it. It's good!

Has anyone won the lottery for this show?  Where are the seats, are they any good?

The K seats should be fine. We sat closer, but in that area, and there aren't really any seats that are terribly distant. It's a small theater.

I don't remember when we got out. A WWII veteran who saw a production of the original musical during the war was honored on the Sunday matinee we went, so things took a little longer, and we didn't hustle out of the theater. Others might have a better idea. It sounds like you're fairly safe, given the proximity of the other theater.

I won a single ticket via lottery for the matinee today ... 

I'm wondering if the chili is with meat?

 

Thanks,

I went yesterday - matinee as a lottery winner .. seat G 238;  It was a great seat for a strange show.

At least 80% of the crowd was over 70 and I really wondered what they thought.
