  • The best seats are in the back of the orchestra or front of the mezzanine. Excellent sight lines and great sound.
  • Get seats in the Loge if possible. :-)
  • Get a bag of Swedish Fish at the concession stand at the bottom of the mezzanine level staircase before the show.
  • Bathrooms bottom floor in the center and on the north side of the Balcony and Gallery levels. Women, hurry unless you want to spend intermission in a line. Men, no need to hurry.
  • If you are short like me, ask for a pillow from the Ushers. #ordwaytip
