Generally have enjoyed box seats at other theaters, both for the nearness and the price.  Going to be in the city this weekend and thought we'd stop by the Kerr to get tix for Hadestown for our next trip in a few months.

 

I see one picture at A View From My Seat of Box A at the Kerr, and it looked good enough to us.  Any other experiences there with Hadestown to recommend for or against?

Thanks!

As you already know, box seats will always be somewhat partial view. For Hadestown, both sides are fine since the circle thing is in center stage and you'll see most of the show. If given a choice, however, I'd recommend sitting in house left box seats.

Yes, we are familiar with the obstructions.  I should have mentioned that.  We've seen Hamilton from boxes twice so far -- going again in September.  Hopefully we'll have options at the Hadestown B.O. when we stop by there tomorrow

Per the Box Office, they only sell the boxes on the Day of the Show.

 

We bought Mezz (for much more $) for our next visit in September

Sorry to drag up and old topic but could use some advice.

 

Ticketmaster is now selling box seats and they're all $189 except two to the left in house left box B which are $99. I guess it must be heavily obstructed for that price?

I’m assuming from those specific seats, you might not be able to see the second level landing that Hades and Persephone sit at.

That being said, sitting on the inside of box seats are miserable no matter what theater, because you have to sit behind the person next to you. Just in general not a good situation.

I posted my Box A picture on Aviewfrommyseat.com last month.

The view was spectacular, but make sure you get seats 7-8. Less extreme angle.

Don't get the $99 ones a seat over. You want to be on the railing, not a seat over. It's worth the extra money, imho.

Thank you for your replies, I suspected as much that there was a good reason they were literally half off the ones at the front. 189 is way out of my price range so ill probably try my hand with stubhub or sro!
