Good value seats

For those on a strict budget, the least expensive seats are located in the Gallery, which can feel extremely distant from the stage. Alternatively, seats towards the ends of rows in each section are cheaper, due to being angled towards the stage.

Premium seats

If money is no object then the best seats can be found in the centre of the Stalls and Circle for a perfect view of the stage. Rows F-J are considered to be an excellent distance from the stage, but you should sit further forward if you want a more intimate experience.

You had to lean to the side a little to see the one side of the stage and there was a bar blocking just a little bit of the view, but otherwise the seats were perfect, the legroom is pretty small but there is space to stretch your legs. More
