    Well, I'm not sure about the show in Florida but we just caught the travelling show (Varekai) in Boston. I joined their web site's club and they send me updates and discount emails all the time. Worth a try - just go to their website and check it out.

    It is a designation given to specific seating areas within the theatre. Mostly closest to the stage.

    I'm not at all convinced that Cat 1 seats are better (especially for the money) If you haven't seen the show in DTD, I'd recommend buying Cat 2 tickets. Cheaper and frankly I think that being slightly higher (in the Cat 2 seats) may be better as so much of the action is above the ground. There really didn't seem to be a bad seat in the house, other than those on the upper decks far sides (and I think those are the ones only sold at the box office).

    Oh--okay--

    We must have had Cat 1 tickets when we booked (though that was almost 5 years ago, and hubby didn't mention anything about less expensive seats). We were 2nd row and it was actually pretty cool.

    I agree, any section is probably okay--but I like detail and seeing things up close. Though it was difficult in Cat 1 to see the beginning of the show (not sure if people know how it begins and don't want to be responsible for spoiling it).

    :)

    The only discounts I have seen are buy one get one half or free deals and those have been for either FLa residents or just show up and get them (I don't recall where I have seen them, so please forgive me--I'm not even sure if it was available only for a certain category).

    Do best what your budget can afford--if you are the type of person who likes to sit on the 50 yard line first section at a football game, front row at any stage show or concert, or front row tix to a b'ball game--then you probably will not be disappointed with choosing the 1st section.

    I haven't sat in the 2nd section so cannot compare the two adequately to say one is better than the other.

    In the past--the sooner you book, the better your seats.

    We have never been to Cirque, and booked Cat 1 and got sec 301, 1st row, seat 1 and 2

    Hope we can see all the air stuff from there, without getting neck aches. lol

    Anyone been that close that can comment?

    Well, I was pregnant and 2nd row somewhere (don't remember the section)--I do not recall any neck aches or other discomfort (other than that wretched morning sickness). I have neck problems allready--and I somehow was able to position myself to watch the show with no problems. I do not recall if the seats have a recline in them or not.

    Ordinarily I wouldn't worry about a few bucks, but I need 16 tickets spread over 3 different nights. We've been before and loved the category 1 sections.

    Actually we were in the second row, middle stage. (don't recall the section #) I don't think there is a bad seat in the place, but I can't imagine a better one than where we were.
