Sweeney Todd Seating Question#0
Posted: 12/28/05 at 2:47pm
I'm looking into buying tickets to Sweeney Todd in April, because I am going and I know this show is not to be missed. The only problem is family budget and such and I was looking into the rear mezzanine seats.

Is there a definate reason why the rear messanine seats are priced so low? The Eugene O'Neil Theatre seems so small, are the seats so far back or is there a certain reason?

Thank you so much!

Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

The theatre is small; my tickets were for THE very last row and they were still better than any I've sat in to see touring companies. They worked fine for me. If you know the theatre is small and that all the seats are good, then just accept that sometimes you get a lucky break when it comes to pricing.

Actually, I was looking into seats as well and was wondering if the first row of the Orchestra is good. Sometimes a first row can be killer. Does anyone know what it's like in the Eugene O'Neal.

A bit off-topic, but nonetheless.

Has anyone seen Sweeney Todd on TKTs?

I sat in the first row and the seats were amazing.

Awesome. Thanks. I guess that is the seat I'm going to get. Will it still be open in March?
