I'm looking at getting some tickets for August: Osage County before it moves theatres and found some seats in the front row. Will that be too close for this kind of show?

Read the last response. I've never seen the show from anywhere
but rear mezz, but if I had to choose tickets to anywhere in the
theatre, I would go for front mezz, first couple of rows.

I work there sometimes and I think it's better from F G H J K rows Orch (the incline is better) , or first 2 rows mezz, which overhangs the orchestra pretty close

Orch K is very, very good. Not too close, not too far, 2 seats off the aisle on the right section.

I wasn't even aware August ever played the Imperial...



broadway, that's off to the side but it should be far enough back that it isn't so bad. I suggest front mezzanine for Billy, though.
