For reserved seating shows you have two options:

On right hand top of page simply click Best Available tab and choose your preferred price level and number of tickets.
Or Select Your Own Seats tab from the right hand top of the page by clicking on the section you prefer on the seating map or if there is only one section you can choose seats but clicking on the colored seat, then choosing the correct price type.  Grayed seats are not available for purchase.  Select Your Own Seat option requires Flash and may not be compatible with some devices  If you are having trouble viewing the map, the best option is using Best Available.
