Kimmel center

We are considering going to see the Beatles tribute at the Kimmel center...I just wanted to know about the seating. I think I read somewhere that certain areas are accessed by elevator. Just wondering what areas we can get to by just doing the stairs. I think what I read was that to get to certain sections you had to use a small elevator...I can't do elevators and esp ones that are small. I just don't want to buy tickets in a section that I can't get to by using the stairs. Thanks...I know this might sound like a weird question...sorry.

All levels & seating are accessible by stairs. You do not have to use an elevator as far as I know.

To double check I would send an inquiry directly

There are a couple of side boxes that are elevator only, I think (The Proscenium boxes at the Academy of Music). They are not used for a lot of shows anyway.

If the venue is Verizon Hall, I am pretty sure about all stair access. Not one hundred percent on Perleman, the Merriam or Forrest (I assume the latter two, since they were designed before elevators were as common)

I am amazed that the building/fire codes would allow egress only by elevator. This certainly would not be legal in NYC.

I agree with pookala, your best bet is to contact the venue for a question like this. http://www.kimmelcenter.org/contact/
