We'll be in NYC (for the first time) July 3-7 to see Broadway shows. We have tickets to Billy Elliot and the Norman Conquests. We also had tickets to Guys & Dolls, but it just closed. We are thinking about South Pacific for the evening of July 4, but since we are staying at the Marriott Marquis (to be close to the theaters), I'm a little hesitant to venture far from that area. Is it going to be a terrible problem getting by taxi to Lincoln Center & back on the night of July 4? If so, what's the next best bet to see a musical production of a traditional show - West Side Story?
Also, is it better to have front row seats on orchestra right at the Vivian Beaumont Theater or back row orchestra center seats?
