Gypsy seating question#1
Posted: 7/15/08 at 9:37pm
When I search for Gypsy tickets, I'm getting Left Orch Row K, Left Orch Row N, Center Mezzanine Row G, or Center Orchestra Row T. Out of these options, which would be the best overall?

I'd go for either Left orch row K or center mezz row G.

How far to the left in row K?

I've sat in those seats in row G orchestra (21-23...with a friend obviously) ~ they're slightly partial view at G, so you *might* be ok in row K...

I'd got for the mezz.

I did the mezzanine and it was perfect.

Personally (after seeing the show) I would recommend Orchestra Center Row T ... its is just bec. (without giving much spoilers) Orchestra feel like youre part of the whole theater. IT IS IMPORTANT to "feel" that, bec. there are parts of the show that the audience is a part of a certain scene!

Jay, I pretty much know about all the spoilers, but I can't think of what you could be alluding to...could you PM me about what you're talking about?

I'm thinking we're either gonna do the orchestra row T or the mezzanine.

Just pm you...


PLEASE DO NOT READ..IF YOU WANNA BE SUPRISE!





*****SPOILER******


It has to do with Miss Patti's Entrance with "Sing out Louise part!" She entered thru the Orchestra's door. if you sit in the MEZZ..you might just see her coming in and going up on the stage thru the stairs...not THE WHOLE DRAMATIC ENTRANCE!

******END****

I sat in the left orch row J and had a great seat, so I'd go with the orch row K seat. Patti's entrance really isn't anything to choose a seat based on. You'll see her no matter where you sit... she does run up onto the stage where you'll be able to see her for the rest of the show. I'd barely call it a spoiler that she enters from the orch. Any of the seats are good, I can only recommend row K because it's closest to where I sat and had a great view!

I agree with the entrance through the orchestra not being that big of a deal. She just runs u the aisle in her stupid isotoners and the drama begins when she gets onstage.

That said, I've been told by a friend that this production is really staged for the mezz and that those seats are just about perfection. I'll know for sure after this weekend ~ sitting row C center in the front mezz.

May be a dumb question, but if I had my choice between Orchestra Center O or maybe T (depending on when I try to buy) and Front Mezzanine, would Mezz be better? Normally I'd say no, but what I've read on here makes me think twice. Also on an unrelated note, had anyone stage-doored recently for Gypsy? What's it like during the week?

(or to put it simply: is a good Front Mezzanine seat better than a so-so Orchestra seat? Obviously specifically referring to Gypsy.)

Sorry, re-read thread and totally realized that my question is more or less answered. If anyone still would care to respond who knows more specifically, I would still be eternally indebted, but as it is I think I'm going for front mezz. This will be my second time seeing this show, but the first time it was my first show (well, at least Broadway show) in May. I'd always wanted to see a Broadway show and really thought I was "in love" with it and theater in general. Then I saw Miss Lupone (and the amazing Benanti. I would so go straight for her.), followed by a weekend of plays and really fell head over dance shoes. And all this was before I discovered this board and great discount sites. Though I was amazed by the show, I do remember my seat wasn't that great, which is why I want a really good one this time. Anyway, good night (or good morning if it's later) and thanks again for being such a helpful bunch.

Sorry for another seating question.
Better than another thread though, right?

Which do you think is better?

A) Rear Mezz- Row Q - seats 102-103 (77$/ticket)
OR
B)Balcony- Row D- seats 111- 112 (52$/ticket)

Balc D!
I sat Balc Row E Center the first time and could see everything fine! :)
Okay so it's a little high up and far, but still! It's really good :)
Much better than Row Q!
Hope this helped!

Oh, I meant to come back to this earlier..

I don't know about the balcony legroom, but there is NONE in the mezz. The view was great when I saw it with my family. Absolutely fantastic! But we were so cramped into the seats! (And I'm one of the ones who doesn't feel cramped at Studio 54, so I was kind of surprised I didn't remember hearing the St. James mentioned.)

If I get to choose a seat again to see it, I'd go with ANYTHING in the orchestra over the mezz unless maybe I got front row mezz.

I was in Balcony row A and wasn't exactly thrilled with the seats. Then again, I'm not a seat snob, so...the problem was that I kept having to lean forward to see over the half wall.

Then when I would lean forward, the people behind me couldn't see. For the price, it was alright. I think if I saw another show at this theatre, I would have to question sitting in the balcony.

Plus, it was soooo high up. I felt like I was taking the stairway to heaven to get to my seat. We just kept walking up and up and up...it seemed like there was no end in sight!

when i went i sat in row s of orchestra on the right aisle. my parents sat in row t right behind my sister and i. i didnt know patti came through the audience, i guess i just didn't think of it. my dad tapped my should and told me to look to my right and there she was! mama rose was two feet away from me. i would sit there again just because i thought that was cool. but the rose sign is a little cut off when you sit in rear orchestra =/
