The Tony award winner for Best Musical began its run on October 7th at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre with an opening night that occurred on November 9th. Before you grab your tickets for The Band’s Visit and see why it won 10 Tony awards in of June 2018, we have a comprehensive guide of the theatre so you can make the best choice for yourself.

In reviewing the Barrymore Theatre, specifically the quality of the seat views and the seating itself, I thought this local New Yorker described the Barrymore Theatre Seating Chart perfectly:

It’s okay….but definitely not my favorite of the Broadway houses.  

Yes; it is a Director’s job to use the space to its utmost potential, and know a theater well enough to avoid bad sight lines.

But the outskirts of the orchestra just lend themselves to making this Director’s task nearly impossible. The feel of the theater is also a bit on the wrong side of claustrophobic.  And the seats aren’t the most comfortable.

Barrymore Theater Detailed Seating Chart

Almost every review or person I spoke to about the Barrymore Theatre seating configuration said there’s not a bad seat in the house. However, you wouldn’t know that unless you sat in one.

1. User Review of Barrymore Theatre Seating Chart:

User’s seats: Section: Left Rear Mezzanine, Row: A

“Our view was slightly obstructed. 2nd balcony may be fine for musical, but difficult for play where facial expressions are important such as Betrayal.”

2. User Review of Barrymore Theatre Seating:

“The best seats at Barrymore Theatre are in the orchestra…the mezzanine sits a little too far back for my taste. There isn’t a bad seat in this theatre, but even the last row of the orchestra has a great view.”

Barrymore Theatre Seating First Row MezzOne of the best features of this theatre is that the stage is straight ahead as you walk in from the front. The street is therefore off of the back of the house and the outside noise levels (at least in the orchestra) are almost completely unheard. Many Broadway houses have the street along one whole side of the house, with doors that open on to the street…providing almost no sound proofing.

The downstairs lounge is a little cramped compared to similar houses…There isn’t really a good place to stand before the show or during intermission. Aside from that, this is a perfectly adequate theatre in which to see a play. I don’t have any strong complaints.

You’ll see from wherever you sit. Even the back of the mezzanine gets you a decent view, but in the end you get what you pay for.”

3. User Review of Barrymore Seating Chart

“The theatre itself is very nice, it’s beautiful inside. The bathrooms are clean and there’s a lot of stalls in the lower level bathroom which makes the ladies room line move real fast. The theatre is very small so seating can get tight, despite the tight seating I was pretty comfortable. We sat in the second row on the left side of the orchestra for Macbeth which was really awesome because we got to see Alan Cumming up close when he was performing on the part of the stage near the orchestra. Some of the performance view was obstructed by the set in this seat but it was a small part of the performance so it wasn’t too bad.”

Other Notes On Barrymore Theatre

Overall the most consistent complaint at the Barrymore Theater is that getting in and out takes forever and that the bar area is extremely tight.
