According to the Lincoln Center website:


Venue Accessibility

The box office is accessible from the plaza level. Wheelchair seating is accessible from the concourse level only. Please call 212.799.3100 ext. 2207 at least 24 hours prior to the performance to make arrangements for assistance.


Wheelchair Seating

There are six wheelchair locations in the Orchestra and ten locations in the Dress Circle.


Wheelchair Loans

Available for people to go to and from their seats. No security deposit required.

It would be a good idea to give them a call. It might be safer for you if you sit in the wheelchair in wheelchair seating to avoid being jostled, having to get up and down for your row-mates, etc. If you are bringing a wheelchair but sitting in regular seating, it's likely they will have to stow it for you during the performance. I'm not sure if crutches will fit under the seats, since there may be hardware between the seats that blocks them -- this may be section-specific, too -- but they should be able to discuss the logistics with you.

I am pretty sure you can stow crutches under the seats because I'm sure my father must have done that. He didn't go really once he needed a wheelchair so I cant speak to that. But he was on crutches from when I was 7 and I know he went after that.
