SeatPlan Recommends: Seats in the Arts Theatre are relatively good, due to the intimacy of the auditorium. Sit in the mid-front of the Stalls for the best overall view. Seats in the Dress Circle are good for those looking for seats on a budget. Be aware that the front three rows of the Stalls may cause neck-ache due to the height of the stage.
