NYC Wicked tickets.. please help!!

Hello, me and my husband are playing to go see Wicked in NYC in a couple of weeks. My husband has never been before and the only time I have been to broadway was 8 years ago in high school. Since its only a couple of weeks away, we don't have many options for tickets, but here is whats left to choose from:
Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!!!

Front Mezzanine C115-C116
Right Orchestra J7-J9

Both sets of tickets are the same price.
Thanks for your time!

I'd go with the mezz seats. Wicked has lots of of large production numbers, so being center and back a bit farther will allow you to see everything.

You can go to www.Broadwaybox.com and search for Gershwin Theatre. The page has an interactive seating chart so you can see exactly where the tickets are located.

I'd go for the J row seats. It's a big musical staged in a big theater but virtually all of the show takes place in or near the middle of the stage. I can think of only 2 extremely minor things that happen on the edges of the stage and neither would impact your enjoyment of the stage. You might miss both of them if you were sitting center in Row H. In any case, you'd be happy with either. If you are a big fan of the show (I am) you may enjoy the Saturday "Behind the Emerald Curtain" tour, offered by two of the original cast members.

I too vote for the J seats. I'd rather be closer. The mezzanine at the Gershwin is really a long way back.

Ignore the preceding post of Yesceeohh. It's a first-poster's obvious attempt to get a free ad. More important, if what they offer are discount prices, I'd hate to see its regular prices.

I just noticed that this thead is over two months old. So, happily, the OP didn't fall for the above-mentioned suggestion. As for anyone else, continue to ignore that posting.

Yes, how funny. That "wicked" site is properly named, since their prices are indeed "wicked"! Not only are the seats priced above the standard prices, but when they tell you that you will be in orchestra row Y, they don't even let you know that you might be at the extreme sides. Why on earth did the poster use the word "discounted" in his post? Discounted from what?
RIP OFF!

Oh, by the way, I checked for a random date later this month. That RIP OFF site advertised above offers seats in Orchestra row Y for a "discounted" price of $147 (plus fees). The full cost of a seat in row Y (also available for the same dates) is only $97. So can anyone explain why anyone would want to pay an extra $50 plus to buy a ticket from a non trusted web site rather than direct from the theatre or its authorized agent -- Ticketmaster? I guess there is one born every minute!
