Sharon, I was seated in Section 3 or 4 about half way up, and found that was a reasonably good location. While Sections 7-10 provide a good view of the performers coming towards the audience, many parts of the performance take place in mid-field, so the middle seating will be closer to that. I'd suggest booking your tickets as soon as you have your dates finalized. Some performances can sell out quickly and if you want seating in a particular area, early booking will be essential. You don't necessarily have to buy as soon as tickets are available, but book as early as possible. If your budget will allow, you might consider the Wallace Package or one of the other premium packages. That provides a few perks over queueing up with the masses. Note that the Wallace Package does not apply to the 19:30 Saturday performances (I believe the other two premium packages apply to all performances. Be sure to book your hotel accommodations early too, as hotels fill up quickly in August. Happy travels!
