    Good to know when visiting Shubert Theatre

    When you're looking for a seat at Shubert Theatre, you'll want to consider the differences between each section. The orchestra location is the most accessible without any steps, and it provides the best views. The mezzanine location is up 2 flights of stairs, while the balcony location is on the 3rd level.

    There are no lifts or escalators in the theatre, so mobility-impaired patrons will be restricted to the orchestra section. Additionally, the bathroom is not wheelchair accessible, so keep that in mind when planning your visit. The closest accessible bathroom is at Sardi's across the street on the 4th floor accessible via lift.
