Broadway/Eugene O'Neill/Fela...Please Help Me Choose Seats!

I have a choice between Center Mezzanine Row C, seats 101-104 or Orchestra Left, Row K, seats 7-13. Which are better to see Fela? Thanks

I would go with the Center Mezz which is only 1 row further back than the Orchestra seats. The side seats, especially seats 11 & 13 will have a very angled view (you will probably miss some of the action on the left side of the stage), they are 6 & 7 seats in from the aisle. We never take a side seat that is more than 4 seats in from the aisle. Go with the Mezz.

Another thought, you may want to search for 2 seats instead of 4, you may come up with better seats if you don't mind splitting up.

Thanks! I tried the two seat idea, but it didn't really give me a better option. Should I bring binos?

No you wont need binoculars.

Don't forget to use the discount codes for Fella, 30% discount.

Thanks Frank. Yep, I went on Broadway Box. Is that the right one?

Thanks again. One more silly question...It'll be the middle of summer. Do they crank the aircon on, or is it a comfortable temperature?

Each theater is different but generally it's comfortable. Bring a sweater or light jacket if you are wearing short sleeves.

Lots of casual places on 9th Avenue and not too expensive.

Also Becco (Lidia Bastianich) on restaurant row (W. 46th St) is a long time standby. Check the link below:

Also Carmine's serves big portions to share and is always lively.

How about something not Italian and not sushi? We have those covered already. Thanks!

If you like Mexican, Toloache is very good and not your typical TexMex place- more upscale. http://toloachenyc.com/media/toloache.html For American, Thalia is good.

I love Mexican, but wouldn't it be kind of heavy before sitting down for a few hours? Keep the suggestions coming, por favor.

Check out the 21 Club, not casual, but they offer a $35 three course price fixed dinner. It's an experience if you have never been.

Also check out Bay Leaf, good Indian Food in the West 50's.
