"O"
 
Seeking info on this show - which seating is bad for getting sprayed with water etc and which seats for good view. Thanks to all for help.

Can tell you next week as I'm seeing the show on Saturday.

any of the FULL price seats are fine - avoid the "limited view" seats.

Definitely go with the full-price seats, not the limited view. If you call for tickets, they will tell you what seats are "wet". I believe they were section 103, rows A through G. We avoided those, and sat in the section just behind (203). The wet area didn't seem to get too wet, though. I was happy with where we sat because there is so much going on that you get a better view of the whole picture. (Just FYI, I see lots of Broadway shows, and I believe the best seats are 8 to 10 rows from the front--definitely not front row. I like to sit a little farther back.) There's a great seat map available on-line at www.cirquedusoleil.com. I wouldn't pay for the "green" or "purple" sections--they are just too far away. Spend the extra money--and it's not that much more--for the better seats. This is both the BEST and the most bizarre show I have ever seen. It is amazing and completely unique, and I wouldn't hesitate to see it again.

As I recall, only the first ferw rows got sprayed.

We had fantastic seats...obtained through the hotel concierge.

I sat in row 2 in the very center once and didn't get wet at all. Don't know if this is typical of everyone in front, but "O" isn't a particularly splashy show as far as audience risk is concerned.

Hey applejack,

Just a report back. We sat maybe 15 rows back, didn't get wet at all, and had a great view. And it really didn't look like anybody anywhere got more than a light spritz a couple of times. I wouldn't worry.

And the show was fantastic, by the way.

Enjoy!

We were in the third row - did not get wet.

Loved it!
