Best Seats In The House

  • Seats: 1040

The front orchestra section or the front section of the mezzanine are the best bet to see a show in this theatre.

The extreme right and left sides of the first several rows of the orchestra have a somewhat obstructed view. Many parts of the mezzanine also suffer from limited vision and cramped seating.

Patrons heading to the balcony seats must use the entrance that is at the far right of the main entrance. Balcony ticket holders should be prepared for a long journey up a seemingly endless staircase. Although unofficial, the balcony seats in this theatre will not accommodate theatregoers who are larger than 250lbs, assuming they could even make it up the endless stairs in the first place.

Small seats is something that many other Broadway theatres that are owned by the Shubert Organization suffer from. If smoke is used in the show, it will linger in the balcony for quite a long time as the ventilation system is wholly inadequate and often feels akin to the old days that allowed cigarette smoking in the theatres.

The front row A of the balcony has limited vision as there is a huge brass safety rail directly in the sight line, which can be very annoying, so Row B is better. The boxes in this theatre have awful sight lines and terrible audio and should be avoided as should the on-stage seating, which many shows at this theatre have been known to accommodate to increase the show profitability, but reduce the quality of the overall experience for both the audience and the actors.

There are few great seats in this theatre and the trick here is to get seats that can be just "tolerated" as no seat is a luxury experience.

The closest parking is not always the best as it often takes longer to park and retrieve your vehicle as fellow theatre goers have the same idea. A better choice of parking may be the second choice or further away by a couple of Avenues.

Belasco Theatre History

In 1907, Broadway mogul David Belasco opened a theater on 44th Street and called it the Stuyvesant. He might have named it for himself, except that he already had one on 42nd Street called the Belasco.

However, when that one got a name-change in 1910, the man known as the "Bishop of Broadway" (because of his unconventional clothing choice) re-christened the Stuyvesant as the Belasco Theatre.

Ever the impresario, Belasco had his theater built state-of-the-art, with high tech lighting and set equipment and special effects capabilities. Although it is on 44th Street, arguably the heart of the theatre district, the Belasco Theatre is located east of Seventh Avenue, where only a few lonely Broadway houses still stand; perhaps as a result, it isn't as popular as many of the other theaters on the Great White Way.

The Belasco Theatre was eventually bought by the Shubert Organization, but legend has it that its namesake continued to attend performances there, albeit in ghost form, even after his death in 1931.

Belasco Theatre Design

The Belasco Theatre was designed by architect George Keister with a white-trimmed, red brick colonial-inspired exterior. The small lobby is dingy and painted an unattractive brown and cream; high on the walls and the ceiling are faded paintings of pastoral scenes. The interior of the Belasco Theatre shows some signs of age but is nonetheless very handsome, with numerous murals and beautiful stained glass light fixtures. The restroom lounges have a certain cozy charm, but are desperately in need of renovation.
