Would seats in the center orchestra of Row X be good at the Gershwin? Or should I try for closer but to the right or left of center stage? Thank you.

pj.row x isnt bad. You get a clear view of the stage. But you don't see everything. Because the balcony is kind of coming down on you. Youn don't see much of the dragon and there are some cogs and people who appear at the top. If you can try maybe a few rows closer. If you can't. Then it's not the end of the world. They are actually pretty good seats.

I saw the show from center orchestra row K and then again from row F on the right three seats from the wall. I liked closer better because you catch more of the small things that Chenoweth and Menzel do that make theri performances so special.

Ticketmaster has plenty of seats anywhere from Orchestra Row G to Row N, but to the far left or right. Should I maybe try for closer up and to the side, or go for center, but far, far back?

It depends on your preference. Some people would rather sit farther back and see the whole stage. I prefer to be closer so I can really see the detail in an actor's work. WICKED is certainly a big enough show that you will enjoy the size of the show from row X. But I thought my far right row F was just fine.

Alritey, thanks for the info. I think I'll just take what comes up first w/ Ticketmaster.

I've got a ticket for orchestra row G on the far right which is listed as partial view. I was aiming for a less expensive ticket and my other choice was rear mezz for the same price. I've already seen Wicked so I'm not worried about missing anything but I was wondering if anyone has any opinions on the view from that area. I'm sure it'll be fine - just curious!

To SA44: Some people will tell you, it's too close, But personally, I love to sit close. There will be hundreds and hundreds of people sitting behind you that night who would kill to have your seat. Enjoy!!!!!
