London’s Most Popular Crowdsourced Seat Guide Just Launched on Broadway

Fans of Hamilton, Hadestown, and Mean Girls unite! Never again will you have to worry about what seats to choose on Broadway with the new seating advice website.

The UK’s leading theatre seating information website SeatPlan has now expanded to Broadway, with over 30 New York theatres on the site with information about comfort, legroom, view, and accessibility.

Starting in 2011, SeatPlan has been helping theatregoers choose where to sit for eight years – and make sure they pay the best price for their ticket. Got long legs? Never sit in a cramped seat again! A long show? Find out which seat has the comfiest cushion! You can forget about sitting in seats with unmentioned restricted views, too.

With over 70,000 seat reviews and 35,000 view-from-seat photos collected, SeatPlan rates each seat based on comfort, legroom, and view, with all of the reviews coming from audience members who have sat in the seat. Audience members submit their photo reviews onto the website and earn points which can be exchanged for theatre vouchers.

Yes, you can earn theatre vouchers just by taking a photo of the stage from your seat (before the performance, of course).

For every 1000 points earned, users can claim a $10 theatre voucher to spend on their next show. And, if you’re one of the first 100 reviews for a theatre, then you’ll  earn double points – that’s double points for every review submitted for a Broadway theatre! SeatPlan also runs monthly competitions as well as giveaways on their Twitter and Instagram.

SeatPlan also has unrivalled information about each New York theatre’s accessibility, including how many steps there are, the closes bathroom, and if there is a lift.

So, if you’re planning a trip to see Beetlejuice or Be More Chill, make sure to check out SeatPlan for seat advice, and don’t forget to upload your review after the show!

Goodness me I love this time of year! Why? Because I get to bask in the sun with a pint of cider at the London Wonderground before heading into the magical spiegeltent to watch some freaky circus. It is a glorious existence! Luckily for me, summer came a few weeks early as I was invited […]


A statement regarding customer bookings in relation to UK theatre closures due to coronavirus.


One of the beauties of the film Amélie is that very little happens. There’s no drama, no test of faith and no real obstacles to be overcome. And yet it’s mesmerising, whimsical and charming. So how could a musical adaptation live up to its following, especially when Yann Tiersen already created a fantastic score? Amélie […]
