Stay Just A Little Bit Longer in Jersey Boys New Ergonomic Seats at August Wilson Theatre!

February 4th, 2012

From Playbill.com’s Kenneth Jones: Audiences at Broadway’s Jersey Boys have been more at home than ever in the past month following the Jan. 8-10 installation of firmer seat cushions in the 1,250-seat auditorium of the August Wilson Theatre.

The Wilson, on 52nd Street, became the first theatre in North America to use ProBax brand seating technology, an ergonomic addition to the venue. “Dual density foams” encourage “an anatomically correct posture,” reducing “back ache and muscle fatigue from sitting.”

Ian More, CEO of the company NuBax, which owns the ProBax technology, told Playbill.com that the additional result of a more upright posture is more comfortable leg space — your knees aren’t jammed to the seatback in front of you.

  2. Great that we have more leg space! Next step is to widen the seats. I think the theatre was built when all people were short and skinny!!
