Best seats are the ones up front and personal but some will argue that since being a bit further back will give you a better view of the entire stage.

Sections 102 and 202 should be fine.

we sat in the very first row for KA and i would NOT recommend it as we were too close. the advantage of the first few rows and in our case, the first row, we did see all the characters faces very clearly but we were not able to see what was happening further back of the stage very well.

in hindsight, imho, i think the best seats would be about the 5th or 6th row from the stage dead center orchestra on the floor.

No the theatre is sort of bowl shaped withoout a traditional "balcony".

IMHO, the "best" seats are section 202, row EE. You're close enough to see everything including the stuff that happens overhead and behind the 10x sections and far enough back that you can easily see what's happening at the far right and left of the stage. And of course you save a bunch of money.

I'm pretty sure 202 EE is the first row of category C. For sure Row GG is, which is where we sat last fall. Cat. D is the last couple rows in 202.

Your best bet is to call the box office and reserve the seats you want directly rather than trying to second guess the online system.

Instead of booking online we called MGM. While looking at the seating chart we were able to select the exact seats we wanted. 11 rows from the stage dead center. Can't wait.

Enjoy

The view is perfect from GG - that's like row 23 - it's plenty close.

None of the CdS theaters are very large and they're all specifically designed to accomodate each show. It's really not something to worry about beyond knowing that stuff does happen overhead so being "right in front" can be a bit of a pain in the neck.
