Trying to get tickets to a few shows, does anybody know if Loge tickets to the far right or left have obstructions? Not sure if Gregg or Oteil would be cut off because of the angle.
If anybody has any idea please let me know.

there aren't any obstructions. the whole theater is unobstructed except for the area behind the SBD in the orchestra. it is better though to be better off towards the front than the back. generally I dont like to sit past row E in the loge or I would rather sit in the lower balcony.

Thanks for the response, i am actually on the fence between lower balcony and loge since they are around the same price in the secondary market right now. Side Loge tickets seem available at a good price. I go with my fiance's father every year and he has a hard time standing for shows so we do the "seated areas" now. I have sat in both the loge and the lower balcony, i believe Row "B" in both, loved the view from both but they were more centered seats.
Just out of curiousity what happens after row E that you don't like? overhang get in the way?

Back of the loge just feels claustrophobic a bit as the overhang is not too high. Lower balcony has a nice open feel about it. Front few rows center of the loge really can't be beat though.

Exactly. Except for the first few rows I find the Loge too claustrophobic because of the low ceiling.

The openness of the balcony is great -- even the upper balcony seats are good.

The front loge are $150. Center or side doesn't matter much. You are pointed at one of the stacks no matter where you are. I sat in Loge row D and E center for TTB and they were excellent.

Agree with most comments. I really don't think there are any obstructed views in The Beacon. Behind the soundboard is fine as long as you are standing. And everyone stands in the orchestra, so I have no problems with those seats. Lower Balcony is great, a bird's eye view and great sound, but pretty far up there. If you don't like heights, it can be a little iffy. First couple rows of the loge are my favorite seats in the house. Center is always ideal, but the sides in the first couple rows are beautiful seats.

I enjoy the center for the sound, but if you are just worried about the view then side is good

I would also add that the further back you are in the Loge, I feel you get some sound distortion from the low ceiling effect on the acoustics. If I don't get Row A or B in the Loge I would rather be up in the lower balc.

So it sounds like the overall consensus is Rows A-C go loge, anything higher go lower balcony?
Kind of what i was thinking myself.
