Three Days of Rain - Partial View Seats
Can anyone advise on how bad or good the partial view seats are for Three Days of Rain on Broadway with Julia Roberts?

I've had obstructed view at the Shubert and never again. I had to slump down in my seat to see the stage.

Don't know about this particular theatre, but every time I've gotten partial view tickets, I've regretted it.

I would never take a partial view seat, unless it's a play that I have seen a million times and really don't care if the view is horrible or not.

Thanks for the info! The tickets are in the first few rows, just far off to the side. It says you can't see the corner of the stage. Wasn't sure how bad this would be...

Common sense dictates that if the theater says the seats are "partial view," then you probably will miss some of the action.

I got "partial view" for Les Miserables in London from the 1/2 price ticket booth. They were front row center, you could not see the floor at the back of the stage. It was the best theater experience of my life.

It's one thing if the "partial view" are front row center and front row off to the side......a very big difference.

How about Mezz - last row L at the Brooks Atkinson (Odd Couple)? (I sat in Mezz - Row E awhile back and the seats were decent.)
