Tell Us Which Broadway Theaters Have the Most Leg Room!

Show-Score | By Samantha Dupler | Sep 1, 2016

Yesterday, we rounded up our list of the 5 Most Jaw-Droppingly Beautiful Broadway Theaters. But we all know that beauty isn't everything: arguably, comfort counts even more! Inspired by the vocal response on social media, we want your help answering the question: where can we find the most comfortable seats on Broadway? 

When it comes to the subject of available legroom at Broadway theaters, we all have a lot to say!


A blog post entitled "The 5 Most Jaw-Droppingly Beautiful Broadway Theaters" immediately sparked a discussion on Facebook. Instead of focusing on beauty, perhaps we could take a look at functionality...



The comment that sparked it all!


Other Show-Score fans quickly jumped into the convo to share their thoughts on the most spacious (and cramped!) seats in The Great White Way. Let's take a look at what they had to say.


Facebook fan Ellen thinks that the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre offers plenty of legroom in the mezzanine section, but admits that she "can't speak about the orchestra"! 


Scott couldn't recall being more "squished" than he was at the Broadway Theatre when he caught a recent orchestra performance of "Fiddler On the Roof". But, when he moved to the empty row behind his seat during intermission, he found that there was "*significantly* more leg room"!


And lastly, Lisa Anne deems the Lyric Theatre to be the most spacious seater around, pointing out that it was "specifically designed" to provide extra legroom when it re-opened in '97 with the original Broadway production of "Ragtime".


So what are the most comfortable seats on Broadway? Choose your favorite in the poll below.
Then, if you feel like it, head to the comments and tell us why.
