Now Playing: The Play That Goes Wrong

Value for money seats

  • Dress Circle (F-G): Strike the right balance between affordability and a great view in the middle rows of the Dress Circle. Despite the distance from the stage, these seats give you a clear view of the performance without sightline obstructions or the premium rates of seats closer to the stage.
  • Boxes (B, C, and F): The boxes are in the Dress Circle and have some of the most affordable seats in the house. They tend to be off-center or quite far back in the auditorium, so your view of the stage might be more restricted, but for most shows, you’ll still get a decent view of the performance.
  • Stalls (A-O): The premium seats at the front and in the middle of the stalls offer some of the best views at higher rates, but you can get some good views from seats along the ends of the rows at lesser rates. Rows A, C, and E are great choices for a balance between affordability and views. Rows G-O have more affordable seats at the ends, though you might miss some shots on raised sections of the stage.

Best views of the stage

  • Stalls (D-H, Center): For the clearest views of the stage, go for center seats in the middle rows of the Stalls section. These are close enough to give you an unobstructed view of all parts of the stage and an immersive experience without being so close you’d need to crane your neck. They also offer decent legroom and space.
  • Boxes (B & C): Box seats B1 and C2, which are right at the back of the auditorium but on the inner edge of both sections, offer clear views of the stage, especially elevated sections. There might be a slight clipping of your sightline at the edge of the stage closer to your side.
  • Dress Circle (A & B, Center): These are the front rows of the Dress Circle. The section is elevated and raked, giving you unobstructed views of the stage. The front row also has more legroom, giving you the total premium experience.
