    Mezzanine seats are the best value especially if you can secure center mezz. Also beat the bathroom/bar lines by tipping out just before intermission.

    If you can't get the orchestra, the front row mezzanine has great views! It's arguably better than many areas of the orchestra because the view is not obstructed by others.

    Mezzanine is best value. Also I hear there's free valet for Lexus owners. I drive a Camry. 😣

    Instead of buying tickets online, take the time to go to the box office in person; you'll save a bundle on service fees!

    Don't wait for the elevator. You might as well just take the twenty flights of stairs. It is quicker that way. The production however, was amazing.

    Great show Wicked! Valet was closed 20 mts prior to show starting and that was NOT good. Get there early

    Nice theater but sound was a bit muddled for Wicked. Don't know if it was the center of the traveling sound system.

    If you can’t get to Broadway, just wait and those big-budget musicals that you’re longing to see will end up here.
