    Grand Tier of the Winspear has some seats that are more than "obstructed view", (Grand Tier Row A, 54, 55, 56, 57…). You cannot see at all unless you lean way over.

    Also, it's scarey to walk in that first row of the Grand Tier, which is on the 5th floor. There is no real railing, but we noticed there are a few bars to grab onto if you ARE falling overboard! There are not enough aisles, just one on each end of the GT, so there is a lot of climbing over people.
