All see in this theater is good, at least on the first floor where I sat. I can't speak for the balcony but the theater is not that big. Its a nice comfy size. The Aladdin was absolutely fabulous and a must see on Broadway.

The seats were tight and the space was small, my partner is 6 ft and it was a tight squeeze so it maybe worth contacting the theatre to try and get a more spacious seating area :)
