    Previews for Hamilton San Francisco begin on March 10, and opening night at the Orpheum Theatre is set for March 23. The final date of the run is scheduled for Aug. 5.

    Now that you have an idea of how the Orpheum Theatre SF seating is laid out, you’re probably wondering what kind of view each level offers.

    Using fan-uploaded photos, we’ve scouted out some views that will help give you an idea of what you’ll see when you visit.

    Orpheum Theatre Orchestra Seating Views

    The lowest seats available on the Orpheum Theatre SF seating chart are located in the Orchestra Level. These seating options are most on level with the stage, so many theatergoers will prefer to sit in the Orchestra.

    The central Orchestra seats give the most direct view of the stage, though even seats off to the sides of the Orchestra Level get fans close to all the action happening on stage.

    Orpheum Theatre Loge and Mezzanine Seating Views

    Up in the Loge and Mezzanine Level, fans can experience the splendor of the Orpheum Theatre San Francisco with an elevated view.

    Situated in the middle of the venue, the Loge and Mezzanine Levels offer the best of both worlds, as they offer an elevated view of the performance that’s still relatively close to the stage.

    Orpheum Theatre Balcony Seating Views

    The final section on the Orpheum Theatre seating chart is the Balcony Level. From these upper seats, you’ll be farthest from the stage.

    However, some fans prefer the elevated view of the stage you can get from the Balcony Level, since you have a more expansive perspective of the stage.
