Best Seats for HamiltonThe Victoria Palace Theatre underwent a £30 million revamp before opening for the London run of Hamilton.
Traditionally however, the front rows tended to be very low in proportion to the stage forcing audiences to crane their necks, however often giving good value for money seats, while the back rows can also give good views of the stage with little impairment from the Circle overhang, similarly usually offering good value for money seats. The very best seats however tend to be at the centre of the stalls, a little set back front the font.
The Dress Circle offers generally good views, with a shallow curve and a good rake, meaning that most of this area gives unimpaired views of the stage, but often also has little price variation. Legroom can be tight across the Dress Circle. Seats at the end of the rows can be a bargain however, but Boxes and alcove seats should be avoided.
The Grand Circle does generally have good sight lines, however the curve can mean seats at the ends of rows do not have the best views. The seats also tend to be smaller than those in the Dress Circle, sometimes leaving patrons a little cramped.
This show deserves the hypeIf there’s a record to be broken, or an award to be won, the chances are Lin-Manuel Miranda’s smash-hit musical Hamilton has achieved it. Since premiering in London at the Victoria Palace Theatre, tickets for Hamilton have been the hottest in town.
Based on the life of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, this thrilling retelling of American history ingeniously infuses rap, hip-hop, R&B and pop music to revolutionise the modern musical. The musical charts Hamilton’s beginning as an immigrant from the West Indies to his meteoric success as George Washington’s right hand man.
Debuting in 2015 in New York, Hamilton has become a cultural juggernaut all over the world. The Broadway production of this exciting musical recently premiered on Disney Plus to huge acclaim, but nothing can beat the live experience in a theatre.
With the sold-out excitement of Hamilton around the globe, the West End production continues to be one of the most in-demand shows. Don’t give away your shot by missing out on Hamilton tickets.
