Saw Bandstand from Mezzanine Row B, seats 18 - 22 (side mezz). The view was great, although like many other theaters, there is no leg room. It's a small theater, so I think you would have a great view from any location. There isn't a...More

There are some obstructed view seats available at the box office. The are located on the extreme sides of the front mezzanine and orchestra. There aren't any elevators, but there are no steps in the orchestra level.
