Hi everyone!I am new to seeing theater shows, first one was "Hamilton" and that definitely sparked my interest further! I am planning on seeing "To Kill a Mockingbird" and am wondering if the Orchestra seating is raised at the Shubert Theater? I saw tickets for row F or G center but if the seating would make the view difficult I also saw seats in the Mezzanine left and the Mezzanine right in the first three rows for either. Anyone know about the raised seating in Orchestra section? Also, I searched around the thread and maybe I wasn't diligent enough but I did not see anything on this topic yet so I apologize if this was already posted about. Thank you in advance!
i'd be wary of the last 3 rows of the mezz at the Shubert, I often find the balcony overhang low and some of the top of the stage was not visible. haven't been in the orchestra at the Shubert for a while, but have to admit that i don't remember it being very raked.
Thank you Scarlet721 and aasjb4ever for your responses! I am glad to hear that the seating has some sort of lift as the rows progress. I am only 5'2' so I'll need the extra height! I will definitely avoid the mezzanine then and stick with the orchestra! :)
Both of my parents are pretty short, and we've never had any trouble with Orchestra at the Shubert. The sloping of the floor is enough that pretty much anyone should be able to see the action onstage!

They have them in every theater as long as you kindly ask the ushers :) Always use them if you're short or very close to the stage.
Thank you msmp, dramamama611, and dearalanaaaa for the extra confirmation. I heard that mezzanine is great if you get the first couple of rows but seeing as I cannot find any front and center, I think I will stick with orchestra. They are the same price surprisingly enough for the day I want. And haha! I thought booster seats were just for kids! Glad to know I can use them too if needed and no one will get mad!
The mezzanine of the Shubert was one of the highest squeezes for my poor legs. The only good thing was that I was mesmerized by Bette in Dolly that it was well worth it.
Thanks comets! I decided on orchestra but will keep that in mind the next time I attend Shubert theater!
I sat Row R Center Orchestra for Dolly and they were excellent seats! You will enjoy orchestra seats here!
Thank you dramamama611 and matt1982. I was actually speaking with two co-workers who are avid theater goers and even they said they bought seats in the mezzanine for the show. One prefers orchestra but because of pricing went with mezzanine and the other likes mezzanine so she can see more as she is even shorter than me and uses a booster seat as well. I am glad to hear that there isn't a bad seat in the theater except the far sides. Thank you all for your opinions, they are very much appreciated. The show is all the way in November but I'll be sure to update you guys on how it went!
I saw Dolly this past Tuesday and sat in row K of side right orchestra. I was kind of nervous because I'm very short (barely 5 ft) and I had a great view thanks to the raised seating even though the person in front of me was definitely taller than I am.
