Over time, it was not only used for Broadway shows but also as a movie theater. When it changed ownership in 1958, it also got its new name, which is made up of Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne.

Lunt-Fontanne Theatre Seating Plan

Compared to other theaters in New York built around the same time, you’ll have quite a bit of space between rows. The 1,505 seats are divided between the Orchestra, Front Mezzanine, and Rear Mezzanine sections.

Where Are the Best Seats at Lunt-Fontanne Theatre Located?

Due to its particular design, in our experience, the seats in the Orchestra section and the first two rows in the Front Mezzanine are the best. We cannot recommend the Rear Mezzanine because there is a high probability of not seeing some areas of the stage.
