The Vivian Beaumont Theater is a Broadway theater located at Lincoln Center, a New York City complex consisting of internationally renowned performing arts venues and resident ensembles, such as the Metropolitan Opera House, the New York Philharmonic, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and the New York City Ballet. Eero Saarinen, a Finnish-born mid-century architect, designed the building, which opened in October of 1965. The theater's first production featured James Earl Jones and Stacy Keach in a revival of Danton's Death, a play by Georg Buchner. The Vivian Beaumont Theater seats 1,200 and is the official home of the Lincoln Center Theater. Its namesake was an actress and heiress who donated the initial $3 million toward building costs.

What is the best Vivian Beaumont Theater seating?
Some say the orchestra seats, which tend to sell out quickly. Traditionally, the mezzanine or balcony provides a more fleshed-out bird's eye view and offer more pristine acoustics. It's entirely subjective. The Vivian Beaumont Theater interior structure is very non-traditional, so there are no better or worse seats. The seating is arrayed as in a stadium with a thrust stage configuration, providing full views of stage action from any vantage point.
Does this theater offer latecomer seating?
It depends on the production. If possible, ushers seat latecomers at the manager's discretion during the first break in a given performance. Some productions do not have traditional intermissions or breaks that allow latecomer seating. Resolution of these circumstances occurs on a case-by-case basis and rests entirely with management on duty. Try your best to be on time, preferably 15 to 20 minutes before curtain.Back to Top
