Need advice on wicked tickets - where to sit? Gershwin in NYC

I am buying my tickets for Wicked for September. Looking at middle priced tickets so my best options at this point are Row B seat 2 and 4 on the right or left (ORCH) or row N centre (middle of the row). I want to be in ORCH and I usually sit close in the theatre in my city, but it is also small holding about 700 people. I was leaning towards row B on the side, but I have read that the set is large and it may be better to sit further back. Suggestions from people that have seen wicked in the Gershwin would be great. Thank-you

IMHO for Wicked I would want to be at least 10 or so rows back to get a more complete view/

so you don't think 17 rows back is too far?

Row B is the equivalent of 7 rows back in the Gershwin. The side seats are actually right on the aisle and nicely elevated as it's "stadium" like seating. I'd choose those! (besides I like being able to put my legs into the aisle a bit).

But there's nothing wrong with the seats in N either.
