Actually, the last time we saw this show we sat in the first row of the Mezzanine section. Even though it was a bit further from the stage than we wanted to be, we had no trouble seeing everything. Since we were in the first row, we had nothing or nobody blocking our view, so for the price, these were excellent seats.

We've also seen it from the mezz - no problems.

It's long running show and rarely sells out. When we saw it everyone was invited down to the floor just before the show started. We (and quite few others) just moved forward a bit because the view was fine.

It's worth it to sit close so you can see the details of the "tricks" and still not be able to figure them out!

We were in the middle of the mezz and I wished we had sat closer to the stage. You will still see most of the show but there are some tricks that seem to work better if you are closer to the stage.

I've seen it from the front of the mezzanine with no problems. Going next month and purchased front row mezz again with the travelzoo offer.

We had 2nd row mezz through travelzoo. One thing to remember is that they want you to sign a card before the show. The card is on the stage. So before you go to your seats, go sign the card.

The 2nd thing to know is that Penn and Teller sign autographs and pose for pics in the lobby area after the show. They are very accomodating. Great guys and a good show, too.

We saw Penn and Teller and weren't too close. The Rio was offering a 25 % off ticket if you were staying there so we bought those. I don't remember how far back now. Not real far back. I wish we had been closer. Penn and Teller is one of my least favorite shows. I've seen nearly everything Las Vegas has to offer that the actors aren't totally naked. I think I would have enjoyed the show more if I'd been closer so that I could see the magic better. Their magic is a bit more subtle than some. For example, one of them swallows some dress making pins, then pulls them back out of his mouth. Unless you are really close, you can't really see that. I just don't think you'll enjoy it unless you are close.
