We were lucky to see Hadestown this month. The play was fabulous, but we felt crippled by the time it was done. There is absolutely no leg room in the front row mezzanine. However, the view of the stage was terrific. The stage was unique itself with parts that turned and

Saw Hadestown from the cheaper balcony seats! The rating is for the theatre not the show (which is phenomenal). The front row of these is a clear view of the whole stage. I’m usually bothered by heights, but these seats didn’t bother me. The women’s restroom is on the left side

The theatre for the lack of leg room gets a 2. The show Hadestown gets a 5. It’s fun going to broadway. The 4th row mezzanine allowed a great view of the stage.

This is a small broadway theatre with great sound and presentation. Unfortunately, with this small size comes long lines and difficulties with common facilities, so order ahead for drinks and plan wash room needs accordingly. Also, seats are tight, so select as you feel best
