How do you choose Broadway seats?

Jump to last reply

Okay, I have never been to a Broadway play, barely ever been to live theatre period. Four of us are trying to pick a play. We are in our 50's, hip-ish and want to see a play. A couple choices are Wicked and South Pacific.

We are buying far enough in advance to be able to get decent seats and are hoping to pay below $150 per person. www.broadwaybox.com gives us visual choices in seating that don't translate to a country person such as myself. No judgements please.

Where would you sit if you wanted to have the best seats for that price....or a bit more? Which play would you pick (add others as well, please)?

We really don't want to spend our time when we get there standing in line waiting to see if we could get 'cheap' seats. But, maybe I am wrong about that? Should we? Thanks for your help in advance.
