Good value seats
Due to the shape of the Dress Circle, a number of seats are restricted view, particularly towards the ends of rows A and B. These seats face the stage at an angle, but provide an intimate view of the action. Alternatively, sit in the Grand Circle for a bargain!
The best seats are located towards the mid-rear of the Stalls, just underneath the Dress Circle overhang. Seats towards the front of the theatre may miss some of the action on stage, due to the height of the stage. Sit in rows N-P for the best overall views.
Recommended Box Seats

Located at the rear of the Dress Circle, the theatre has three boxes, all of which boast a private entrance away from the crowds in the rest of the auditorium and quick access to both the toilets and bar in the interval.
Box F is a large, spacious box with two rows of seats – 6 in the front row and a further 4 seats on a raised platform behind them. It is recommended to book seats in the front row, which include an uninterrupted view of the stage, which one SeatPlan user who sat in Box F Seat 10
