Honesty In Advertising: Seating Charts

There’s a terrific blog post from Toronto based artist, blogger, and orchestra patron Rob Elliott (h/t Musical Toronto) who decided to sketch a new seating chart for Roy Thomson Hall, home of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO), after recently attending a TSO concert.

With an approach that is perhaps best described as “truth in advertising” his blog post and sketch is fall-out-of-your-chair funny; especially for those who know all too well what Elliott is lamenting.

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra is a great organization, with excellent players and a bold programming…TSO audiences, on the other hand, leave something to be desired. Every time I attend the symphony, I fear my brain is going to explode before the concert is over.

<sarcasm>The only real concern in Elliott’s plan is the hall may need to incorporate increased scaling to accommodate higher price point distractions.</sarcasm>

Which halls do you think deserve updated seating maps and why?
