Oklahoma seating question#1
Posted: 10/1/19 at 11:34am

Considering seeing Oklahoma on my upcoming trip. Is there any advantage to being on the Odd side versus Even for this (looking at the 200 sections)?  

How is the vantage point from the floor seats? It looks like 406 and 408 are open for the performance I'm looking at. Would you recommend those over being in the main seating area?

Thanks as always for your help.

No, I don't think there is any advantage with the odd/even sides.

I would recommend the floor seats if you're looking to be really close to the performers and possibly have the chance to interact with them. The show does a good job of making the entire theater feel involved in the performance, but the floor seats are that to an extreme level.

The table seats do get interaction from actors walking on/sitting on the tables. I sat front row where there were no tables and loved the closeness of it. Either side is good.

I don't think there's an advantage in being in the odd or even sections as the actors play to both sides of the theater.  Given that Circle in the Square is a small theater, I think any seat in the 200 sections is good.  I sat in the fourth row of the 400 section on the aisle across from the 200 section and it wasn't a bad seat, though I was a bit of a distance from the band, which really didn't bother me.  I can't speak to floor seating, but from what I saw, people sitting there got up close and personal with the action, so I think it depends on whether you want more of a spectator view or a more immersive experience.  I hope this info was helpful.

definitely do not think there is a bad seat but the one section i would avoid the even 400s- i think thats the section- there is a sort of wall that i imagine cuts off pieces of the stage (though you would be pretty close to Testa and Jones at various points).

Re: floor seats, I sat floor seats on even side through the lottery loser code. It was a great and immersive experience to be on the stage. Curly/Damon Daunno sat right in from of me on the table and couldn't help but to squeal like a little girl and got some corn husk on me when Aunt Eller u/s (I forget her name) was chucking the corn at our table. Only bad view I remembered was during People Will Say We Are In Love reprise with Curly's back facing us so we could see the intense eye contact that makes the moment. It's a very small intimate theater so no bad seat in the house per se.
