Location of performance seats is not important for this one. I don't like the extreme side seats, but any place else is fine.

If you want a wonderful Italian dinner before the show, go to Operacaffe, right across the street on 4th. My husband, who is from Brooklyn, says he hasn't had chicken parmesan that good since New York. And my salmon was delicious.
