Richard Rodgers Theatre Seating Chart Guide
To make choosing your seats a bit easier for you, we broke down the areas of the Richard Rodgers Theatre by rating them on a scale of 1 to 4, with 1 being the best and 4 being the worst. Light blue being the best and red the worst. However, this does not specifically highlight partial view seats and box seats which are arguably the best seats for Hamilton.

Official Hamilton Seating Chart
Orchestra Seating at Richard Rodgers Theatre
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!
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).
Finally, you should avoid sitting the last two rows of the orchestra section. Seats in these row may be partially obstructed. Hamilton has a lot of action at the top of the stage, and the overhand from the Mezzanine can obstructed the viewing of that action if you are in the last rows.
Mezzanine Seating at Richard Rodgers Theatre
Some frequent theatre attendees will tell you that they prefer the first row in the Mezzanine to seats down in the orchestra level. That may hold true for the Rodgers since the venue is intimate and as noted above, the Mezzanine level overhangs at Orchestra row H-J. Our customers have not complained about the height of the railing in this level being too high, as it can be in other venues. And also unlike many Broadway theatres, the very sides of the Mezzanine are not obstructed and could prove to be the best valued tickets for Hamilton.
Detailed Richard Rodgers Seating Chart with Seat Numbers
The seat numbers for any theatre, including the Richard Rodgers Theatre, are even numbered on the right side of the venue, and odd numbered on the left side of the venue. So, seats 1 and 2 will be on the aisle closest to the center sections on the Richard Rodgers Theatre. The center sections have consecutive seat numbers.
When buying tickets directly from the NY box office your seat numbers will often be numbered. But for privacy purposes, tickets reselling on sites like StubHub don’t have to state their seat numbers (only row and section). For this reason, I don’t recommend buying tickets in the Orchestra Right or Orchestra Left for Rows CC-G on secondary ticket marketplaces (Ticketmaster and Telecharge are okay). Here, you would run the risk of purchasing tickets with obstructed views, taking away from the experience of seeing what’s up on stage. If the prices seem too good to be true, they probably are.
Hamilton Box Seats
There are technically 8 boxes, four on each side, and within those four there are two upper and two lower. All box seats are considered partial view, as you are to the side, so you may miss some action (but we’ve heard no complaints). Section A & B and C & D are the lower boxes, which are more desired, while E & F and G and H are the uppers. F and H are the further back boxes of the uppers, which is better as the angle is less extreme and Box B and D are better verse A and C, since have a smaller angle as well.
It’s a tough call whether the box seats are worth it, it simply comes down to price compared to the other options. With that said, we’d consider any of the box seats better than any rear mezzanine seats. It’s a tough call when comparing to the front mezzanine, the higher boxes are probably equal to row B, while the lower boxes provide some of the best seats in the house (if you like this side vantage point).
Note: One of the best parts of the boxes is that the seats are comfortable non-stationary seats. So you can move them and get comfortable. Therefore, the box seats provide the best leg room verse any of the other seats in Richard Rogers Theatre.
Richard Rodgers Theatre Seat Reviews
via Trip Advisor
“The sound quality was excellent and the view from center mezzanine was great. The seats were small, and very close together. My shins were pushed up against the seat in front of me. I had to put my feet to the side, and I am only 5’7. I loved every minute of the performance, but theatre itself was a bit cramped.
It was a beautiful theatre and it looked like you could have a good experience regardless of where you sat. The seating on the floor actually had the seats in the back set up higher so you were not looking over anyone’s head. This is important because I would never buy a seat on the floor unless it was set up in this way. You won’t be disappointed with a seat on the floor or in the stage area.
The line was long but moved very quickly. We were ushered to our seats very quickly!
I would recommend that you see a show here, unless you are very large or very tall. My husband is 6’5 and he would have been miserable.”
“My friends and I went and saw If/Then at Richard Rodgers Theatre. It’s a pretty nice venue, and unlike most of the other theatre I’ve been to in New York (which I’ll admit, isn’t a lot) the seating here is stadium style. There is enough vertical room between the rows that you don’t have to worry about craning your neck to see over the back of someone’s head. Usually, this particular concern isn’t too much of a problem for me (I’m pretty tall), but it’s still great for everyone else. I was on the balcony and had a great view of the stage throughout the show.
Where being tall is an advantage for watching the show, it leaves me at a disadvantage with my legs, which usually start cramping up halfway through Act 1 due to lack of leg room between the rows. Luckily I scored a seat on the aisle, meaning I could stretch out my legs when I needed. If you have long legs I recommend trying to get an aisle seat.
The theatre is quite nice, and everything about my experience was pretty great until I went to use the washrooms during intermission. I’m not used to having a bathroom attendant, but whatever that’s fine. It’s just if you’re going to attend to the bathroom then shouldn’t you hand a girl more than one measly thin paper towel for her to dry her hands on? During the intermission, the bathrooms are full enough to begin with. I don’t see the point of having a bathroom attendant when the amount of paper towel I got could only dry half of one hand. Just let people use the hand dryers without an attendant. Makes more sense to me, but maybe the whole bathroom attendant thing is part of the theatre experience.”
Hamilton Lottery Policy
Hamilton does have a ticket lottery for day of shows. You can apply for the lottery online through the Hamilton website.
Since tickets are in high demand, there will be a long list of people entering the lottery daily. If you are lucky enough to be chosen, tickets will only be $10. However, please keep in mind, it is no guarantee you’ll win. In fact, chances are very slim so plan accordingly.
Handicapped & ADA Seating at Richard Rodgers theatre
The only seats accessible without steps is orchestra seating within Orchestra Rows A-K. To be closer to the street, to minimize walking you will want to be on the right side (which is even seat numbers).
For those who are confined to a wheelchair and/or those looking to attend an event at Richard Rodgers Theatre with somebody who is, there is some important information that you’ll want to know. If you’re seeking ADA or handicapped seating, you’ll usually find that there are accessible rows at the top of the lower levels of the venue. If necessary, folding chairs will be provided with guests, such as ones looking to sit with a fan confined to a wheelchair. One trick you can use to filter tickets that are handicapped or ADA accessible is by using our “Additional filters +” button on the event page that allow you to select “ADA (wheelchair accessible),” which shows all seats that the seller has marked as handicapped seating.
