Good value seats
Due to the shape of the auditorium and the number of pillars in the Lyric Theatre there are several restricted view seats at lower cost, which could be good for those looking to view the show on a budget - especially if they have seen the show before. Seats surrounding premium seats in the Stalls offer a very similar view for around £20 less!
Premium seats are located in the centre of the Stalls in rows F-J. These seats have the best view overall view of the stage, which is reflected in ticket pricing. Alternatively, seats in the front and centre of the Dress Circle can offer a great view!
