Wheelchair Seating

New York City Center’s Mainstage, Stage I, Stage II, and Studio 5 spaces are all wheelchair accessible. Seats for patrons with disabilities are available online, by phone, and at the box office. Please advise us at the time of ticket purchase of your particular needs.

For Mainstage productions, locations are available on the left and right side of the Orchestra and in row G of the Mezzanine.

For Manhattan Theatre Club plays and all other Stage I and II productions, locations are available in the first row.


A caretaker who is a non-ticket holder may assist you into the theater and to your seat. Please identify yourself to a staff member upon arrival, and they will be able to assist you further. Doors to the theater open 30 minutes prior to performance time. Unfortunately, there is no early admittance to the theater. Please plan travel and arrival times accordingly. Please be aware that there is no seating available before theater doors have opened one half hour before performance time.


The seats in our theater range from 19”-22” wide and are 18” deep. There are armrests on all. They are all joined together, no space between. Some ends have armrests that can fold up for ADA access when wheelchair or walker patrons want to transfer or slide in. Please contact in advance of your visit if you require accommodations to your seats.

A lactation room can be made available 30 min prior to and 15 min after each performance. Please contact in advance if you will require use of the lactation room during your visit to New York City Center.

Assistive Listening Devices

Wireless FM assistive listening devices are available free of charge with the presentation of either a driver's license or credit card.

For Mainstage productions, assistive listening devices are available on the table next to the House Manager's lectern on the right side of the Orchestra lobby.

For Manhattan Theatre Club plays and all other Stage I and II productions, assistive listening devices are available at coat check on the first landing on the ast side of the theater.


For Mainstage productions, ASL interpreters are located near the stage for patrons who are D/deaf or hard of hearing, seated in an area of the theater that gives the best sight lines to follow the interpretation and the action on stage. One signed performance will be offered for each production in the Encores! series, as well as the annual gala presentation.
