I went to see Terry Fator last weekend and was shocked by the size of the theater. The seating chart does not do it justice!
So, if you’re considering going, you’ll want to read this guide. I’ve packed it with photos so you can see the views from different seats.
I’ve also included my thoughts on the best locations and some areas I don’t recommend. Because I can’t have you missing out on all the puppet fun now, can I?
Alright, let’s do this!
About the Terry Fator Theater
Terry Fator performs in the Liberty Loft Theater inside the New York-New York Hotel. This theater is anything but a loft, though.
The room is huge, long, and packed with people. There are 443 seats, a convenient bar on the side, and even restrooms, so you’ll never have to leave the room.
Everyone gets the same seat, too – a padded chair with plenty of legroom. And if you feel too close to your neighbor, you can always scoot over a smidge as they’re stand-alone chairs.
Although the floor isn’t raised, a few screens are along the sides of the room. So, even if you’re not near the front, you can still catch a zoomed-in view of Terry and his puppets.
There are three seating sections in the Terry Fator Theater: 101, 102, and 103. Within each area, you’ll find different ticket prices depending on how close you are to the stage.
For instance, Category A tickets cost the most because they’re the closest you can get to Terry, while Category C is the cheapest because they’re the furthest away.
Photos: View from the Seats
In this next part, I’ll show you pictures of the view from various seats in sections 101, 102, and 103.
I hope these will give you a better idea of why some tickets cost less than others. And help you to pick out a location that’s perfect for your group!
101 is on the left side of the Liberty Loft Theater. From most seats in this section, you’ll need to turn your head to watch Terry and his puppets during the show.
The following photo shows an example of a category A ticket in 101, row C, at approximately chair number 4:
And this next picture is a category B ticket, also in 101. I took this standing at the back of J:
102 is in the middle of the room and offers seating with a direct line of sight to Terry.
This section has the most seats available, but the rows go back far in the room. So, your view can vary greatly depending on where you sit here.
For instance, here’s a picture I took from row C at seat 7. This is a category A ticket:
And this is from row E, also a category A seat:
Here’s the line of sight from row J, which is another category A example:
And then, this is from row M, a category B chair:
Section 103 is on the right side of the room. Like 101, most of the chairs here are at an angle to the stage.
But there are still some great seats to choose from in this area, with many close to the screens, too.
For example, here’s the line of sight from row D in 103. This is a category A ticket:
I took the following picture from row G at chair number 1 (a category B ticket).
I like this location a lot because you’re still pretty close to the stage. And you’ll have an excellent view of the screen if you want to look there:
This next photo is from row FF, at seat number 1. As you can see, this is quite a bit further back in the venue, so it’s also a category B ticket:
After attending the Las Vegas show, I’d say the best seats in the Terry Fator Theatre are the Category A tickets. These include rows A-E in 101, A-J in 102, and A-E in 103.
But the closer you are to the stage in these sections, the better. And that’s again because although the stage is elevated, none of the chairs are. So, you’ll have more heads in your sightline the further back you go.
I also think it adds a lot to the show experience to sit close to the front because you’ll be better able to see the puppets’ movements and Terry’s reactions.
Great Value at Terry Fator
Rows F and G in section 103 are my choices for the best value. The chairs in these rows are both category B tickets, so you’ll save some money over category A.
But you’ll still be near the stage here and have a screen close by, too. I also like these because if you need to stand up during the show, there’s a small wall behind F that you can lean on.
Here’s an example from row F at seat number 7:
I thought that all of the seats at the Terry Fator show had an excellent amount of legroom. And that’s because the rows have a good amount of spacing between them.
But if you want the most legroom out of all the chairs in the theater, here’s where to sit:
- Section 102, B: 1, 11, or 12
- Section 102, BB: 1 or 14
Locations I Don’t Recommend
Because the theater is long, I don’t recommend sitting in the very back rows. I think these chairs are just too far away from the stage. And they’re not that close to the screens, either.
For instance, here’s the line of sight from HH of 102. This is a category C ticket, the cheapest option:
I’d also avoid getting tickets in row H, seats 1-4, and row J, seats 1 and 2 in section 101. I suggest this because there is a post between seats 4 and 5 in row G of 101.
Now, on my theater tour, I didn’t notice that the post was blocking anyone’s view entirely, but I always like to err on the side of caution.
And it does appear that it could be somewhat in the way based on my picture here:
Other Considerations for Seeing Terry Fator in Vegas
For guests who would like to sit near the restrooms, chairs in 101 are the closest you can get. They’re literally just a few steps away.
If you’d like to be by the bar, it’s also on the left side of the room – behind 101.
And for those who would appreciate having a screen near their seat, there are four of them around the venue. They’re not huge, but they do provide a close-up view if you’re within a few rows.
Here’s where they had the screens set up at the show I attended:
- In front of A in section 101
- In front of A in section 103
- On the left side of 102, next to AA (seat number 1 is closest)
- On the right side of 103 at CC (chair number 8 is closest)

My Final Thoughts
On average, there’s only about a $10 difference in the base ticket price between categories. So, in my opinion, it’s worth getting at least a category B.
But if your budget allows, I’d go for category A instead. I sat in row C and loved being that close to Terry and the puppets. And I also appreciated taking photos without rows of heads in my way.
No matter where you sit, though, this show is fantastic and worth seeing. I’ve been to many performances in Las Vegas, and Terry Fator is one of the true talents!
