Criterion Theatre Seating Plan

Good value seats

Because of the number of pillars in the venue, some seats are severely discounted, which can occasionally provide decent value for money. Alternatively, sitting in the front row of the Upper Circle is an excellent choice. Sit in seats towards the ends of the rows for a superb view of the stage on a hugely discounted price.

Premium seats

Premium seats are located in the front row of the Dress Circle in seats 12-21, with central Stalls seating also being excellent. These seats provide the best overall views of the stage and feel incredibly close to the action.

Pretty good seat! There is a bar in front of you, but you forget about it as the show starts, you practically miss nothing except maybe something in the far right corner. Also very comfy and close to the toilets. More
