The Book of Mormon Seating Chart What to Know

Eugene O’Neill Theater doesn’t have a bad seat, so if you can get your hands on tickets for The Book of Mormon, there’s not too much you need to worry about regarding the seating chart.

However, since I am more a seat critic than Broadway critic, I will be the first to admit that not all seats are equal. In this post, I will tell you which seats are the best and which are the worst. I’ll also tell you how to find the best deals and cheapest tickets for The Book of Mormon.

The Book of Mormon Seating Chart

Book of Mormon Seating Chart

Note: The thin red lines in the side orchestra and mezzanine section shows you which seats have a partial or obstructed view. The box seats are listed as a 4 (1 being the best seats) because they are partial view seats, however many people love sitting here. Rear side mezzanine sections are marked 4 because it’s the furthest seats and some seats are marked restricted legroom.

Orchestra Seats, Be Careful

If you are looking at tickets in the Center Orchestra or Center Mezzanine sections, the seat numbers are not nearly as important as if you are looking at the Side Orchestra sections. Unfortunately the box office doesn’t label their tickets with great detail. They either say Center Orchestra or Orchestra. This can sometimes be misleading. If you buy tickets that say “Orchestra,” that means they will be on the side. If you only want to be in the center, make sure you are only looking at tickets that are labelled Center Orchestra!

Limited View Seats – Note: Row E seats 20 & 22, are limited view, but not disclosed.

Therefore, as a rule of thumb if you are buying tickets on the side sections, I only recommend buying tickets where the seller discloses the seat numbers. While tickets that don’t include notes or seat numbers will often be listed for less money, I suggest that you assume that those seats are the least favorable seats in the row (if you are fine with the price and location, buy them ASAP).

You can save money and time when you use TickPick, to buy Book of Mormon tickets:

  1. Tickets are 110% guaranteed authenticate
  2. No hidden fees or added service charges: the price you see is the price you pay
  3. Real 24/7 customer support!
  4. Seller’s are required to disclose all pertinent information regarding their tickets
    • If tickets are marked obstructed, partial view, or restricted legroom that will be disclosed
    • We encourage seller’s to disclose seat numbers (but can’t enforce them to disclose this private information)


Knowledge is Power (know the seating map)

If you are looking for cheap Book of Mormon tickets, seats that are marked as partial or obstructed view (which means the same thing according to the box office) are not always the cheapest option. This means you may not need to sacrifice your view; instead, the best savings come by sacrificing legroom.

The Rear Side Mezzanine sections (both the right and left), have seats in rows J, K & L which were recently changed to say “Restricted Legroom.” These seats are similar to airplane seats, and are typically the cheapest available. If you are over 6ft tall, the space is tight, but still manageable (NBA players should pay up for different seats). Sellers are required to label these tickets as “Restricted Legroom,” and because general consumers don’t know what that means, they don’t buy them. This typically results in prices below $199.

Seats in the box are marked partial view seats and although you won’t miss much of the action, you may have to lean a little bit to see some character entrances. (I remember seeing a man lean over the balcony box and thinking, wow, he may fall, but I only saw him do it once). Nonetheless, box seats have a reputation for being the most coveted seats, so if there’s a show worth trying them out, The Book of Mormon would be the one to try something new.

Thanks to industry standards and guarantee policies like ours, sellers need to disclose if their seats are obstructed. However, sellers do not need to disclose seat numbers. This is because of security and privacy standards, but you can bet if it makes the tickets look better (i.e. aisle seats 1 & 3), those details will often be provided and vice versa.


Be Flexible With Dates

The easiest way to insure that you are going to get the best deal is to be flexible on the date you get tickets for. However, this is a luxury that many do not have. If you do have this luxury, my best piece of advice is to buy your tickets as far in advance as possible. It never hurts to check Telecharge, which is the official box office for The Book of Mormon. Note: as I write this on October 23, 2012, here’s what Telecharge says about future availability:

  • For pairs of regular tickets on weekdays, check dates beginning February 12th, 2013.
  • For pairs of regular tickets on weekends, check dates beginning June 14th, 2013.

If you are planning on going sooner than the next 4-8 months, then Tickpick is the best place to get the cheapest tickets. It’s the only Ticket Marketplace that does not have any Buyers Fees (or service fees), thus saving you an average 10% (well over $100 when compared to other sites that add 10 to 20% fees at checkout). If your dates are flexible, you also want to be sure to take advantage of our “Compare Events” feature. On the search results page, this allows you to select up to 10 different dates that you would like to view tickets for. After you click compare, you’ll be able to view all of the tickets and the “Score Report” for all 10 dates within one screen.

Lottery Tickets or Bid on Tickets:

For many events, the longer you wait, the better the deals you can get, but unfortunately with a hot event like The Book of Mormon, that’s not typically the case. If you find tickets that you like, don’t hesitate and hope that prices will decrease. Over 90% of the time, ticket prices increase the closer it gets to the event.

If you are not willing to spend the money that sellers are asking, read about how to get Lottery Tickets for $32, or try placing bids on tickets.

If you place bids, you can set your price and time of expiration (i.e. 6pm the day of, or maybe 5pm two days before the show). You can also cancel your bid at anytime (as long as a seller has not sold you tickets already).

When you place bids on TickPick you’ll be presented with the likelihood of success (determined by your price and seats you selected). There are two great approaches, bid a few dollars below current prices to save a couple extra bucks, or place a reasonable bid with an expiration time equal or close to show time.

Low ball bids are most likely to occur within the last hour or two before the show starts. Of course this is somewhat inconvenient, but that’s also why you may be able to get prices significantly below the current listing prices.

If all else fails, give us a shout & we’ll do our best to help you find the best Book of Mormon Tickets.

  • David Wachtel

    Row D-10,12 or Mezz Row A, 107-108?

  • Drew

    I bought left orchestra row A… is this too close for comfort? It is rated 3 on your grid.

    • Brett Goldberg

      Drew – It is definitely much closer than I would want to be and we’ve had a lot of people complain about those seats. With that said, being aware of it ahead of time is definitely helpful. You never know you may enjoy being that close but there are drawbacks as discussed.

      • Drew

        Thanks for the Reply Brett. I just got word that they are seats 1 and 2 which should be closer to center stage. Does that improve at all? wondering if I should sell and re purchase. My finance is short so I wonder if this “unobstructed” view would be favorable.

  • Kerry

    Center Mezz. Row A seat 110, or Center Orchestra Row J seat 101– we are ‘tall’er people (5’10’ and 6 ft) and all of the reviews re: the theater have me worried we are going to be knees to chest. Having an aisle seat in Center Orch is appealing, but I wondered if the center mezz row a may have even more legroom? Really looking for the best combo of not being wildly uncomfortable but also having as good of a view as possible.

  • Amy

    Just got tickets for Orchestra O, 22/24. How are these seats? Are they okay?

    • Kfase

      I just ordered these tickets. How were they?

  • Ricky Chan

    I see Orchestra AND Orchestra Orch. Was is the difference?

  • Larry

    I have an opportunity to purchase Orchestra Row B in the center for a Saturday matinee. You have indicated this as preference 3. Can you explain what makes these much less desirable? Thanks.

  • Polar993


    Thanks for all the great information on seat selection!

    How do you purchase the Box Seats? Is it true they are only available through the box office lottery system?


  • Cisco

    Mezzanine Center Row A aisle seats vs Center Orchestra row P aisle. Pretty much the same price… which do I take? Please help!

    • Jack Slingland

      Hi – I sat in row T in the orchestra for Book of Mormon (the last row) with aisle seats and loved the view.

      FYI – For those considering the last row in the orchestra, it is worth noting that standing room only tickets are located directly behind you, and it can feel like the people standing are breathing down your neck at times.

      That being said if you are on the taller side and have a chance at front row of the mezzanine in the aisle those are great seats. Always a plus not having anyone sitting in front of you.

  • Alan R

    Got tickets on orchestra right, row G, 10-12, are these any good?

    I’m worried I should have gone for center orchestra instead.

    • Brett Goldberg

      Those seats will be great!

  • WorldTheatreGoer

    Looks like from Sept 2013- July 2014 there are some orch seats avail at $169 before fees of about $8-$10. If you are willing to split up they are B9 and D13 on the Left or B10 and D14 on the right. Thoughts? They are both in full view by a seat or 2.

    • Brett Goldberg

      Those are practically the same seats / options. The row D seats are decent, but row B, is quite close…

  • Margus

    Hey – I really want the best experience and tend to go for closer. For this show, am I better off in orch Center a-d or more like L? First time to o’neill. Thanks!

    • Brett Goldberg

      Margus – If you look at the first seating chart you’ll see the Center Orchestra, Rows G to M highlighted, anywhere in between those rows would be great, although I would lean towards G to K: email us at support at and we would love to help you further.

  • Jada Den Herder

    Thanks for the info! I have Orchestra Left, Row H, Seats 17 & 19 for Book of Mormon. Seat 19 appears to be an obstructed view from your chart above. Is this correct?

    • Brett Goldberg

      Hi Jada – If you look at the seating chart above you’ll see that the red line indicating if a seat has an obstructed view is actually between seats 19 & 21. Meaning that Eugene Oneill theater labels seat 21 as obstructed but 19 not as obstructed.

      The truth of the matter is that there’s not that big of a difference between those two seats but they need to draw the line somewhere.

    • WL

      Hi Jada, how did you find your seats? I am thinking of getting orchestra left row H (seats 21 – 23). Out of the partial view seats left, I`m not sure if it is better to be closer row C&D or if row H would offer better sight lines. Brett do you have any advice?

  • Jennifer Stone Simmons

    What is the likelihood now of getting Book of Mormon tickets through the lottery or TKTS, especially if I were to try to do a Thursday show???

  • TallNJguy

    Being 6’8″ I’m more interested in the actual seats than their view. Is there any row or section you can reccomend for the best leg room? Aisle seats being the obvious choice.

    • Brett Goldberg

      Hi TallGuy – I would definitely suggest aisle seats, you can see all of the seat numbers above, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding an aisle seat here (seat numbers are displayed on the checkout or when you click on the ticket listing):

      A decent alternative is to sit in the right or left box (if you have a choice the right is better). Technically every seat is an aisle seat since there’s only two seats in a row. However, I believe all of these seats are considered partial view (you’ll miss background stuff and entrances). But this is a comedy… so as long as you are comfortable and you are able to hear you are going to laugh.

      • Natalie Seiden

        It’s really tough to understand what a partial view means, or more importantly what the experience of a partial view seat will be like.

        Any tips or pictures to better understand the experience from the box seats, or do you have any pictures for any other cheap seats that may be somewhat obstructed?

  • KMo

    Got partial view seats at face value, orch right row G – but all the way to the outside (22-24). Can you tell me how bad I can expect the view to be? Hoping G might be far enough back to offset being so far to the right?

    • Caroline Liddick

      Hi! The partial view seats are really not all that bad. I went to a show in a seat all the way to the left of row C. I saw about 99% of the show.

      I went back to see the show to see what I missed. Mostly, you miss a couple sight gags during big ensemble songs. The show is staged so that they only use that space when they really need to. I really liked partial view. It’s a great deal.

      • KMo

        Thanks, Caroline! Makes me feel better!!

    • WL

      Hi KMO, how did you find your seats? I am thinking of getting orchestra left row H (21 – 23).

      • KMo

        WL – they were just fine. A few small sight gags you might miss, as noted previously, but beyond that, they were really great. Most action in center of stage. The show is fantastic! And easy access to bar and bathroom from the end!

        • WL

          Thanks KMo!!!! I am getting excited. Going to NYC in 2 days :)

  • Caroline Liddick

    Hey Sara!

    Depends on your preference – although, you will definitely be able to see all the action from there!

  • Sara

    Just got tickets left/center mezzanine row F. Are these good seats?
