Not yet available.

Based on paying FULL PRICE (no discount!) for tickets, site writers and contributing guests have ALSO created the colour-coded plans for "value for money," considering factors like views, comfort and value-for-money compared with other same-priced seats available.

Some notes for this extra event appear below. For a full discussion, opinions, reviews, notes, tips, hints and advice on all the seats in this theatre, visit the theatre page (link at the top of this page) and click on "BEST SEAT ADVICE" (on the left of your screen).

On the plans below:
Seats in GREEN many feel may offer either noticeable value, or something to compensate for a problem; for example, being a well-priced restricted view ticket. Any seats coloured LIGHT GREEN are sold at "premium" prices because the show producer thinks they are the best. The monkey says "you are only getting what you pay for" but uses this colour to highlight the ones it feels best at the price, and help everybody else find equally good seats nearby at lower prices.

Seats in WHITE, many feel, provided about what they pay for. Generally unremarkable.

Seats in RED are coloured to draw attention. Not necessarily to be avoided - maybe nothing specific is wrong with them, other than opinions that there are better seats at the same price. Other times there may be something to consider before buying – perhaps overpricing, obstructed views, less comfort etc.

Please remember that cheaper seats often do not offer the same view / location quality as top price ones, and that ticket prices are designed to reflect this difference.

Premium and "super premium" seats are limited in the stalls, and it is easy to go in front or behind them. Prices drop at row Q, so take it before row P for the same view. Skip row S as row T is a lot cheaper and has the same view too. Rows T to V are just £25, and have a better view than the upper circle. Legroom in U and V is cramped for those over 5ft 11, but at least feet can go under seats unlike the same price upper circle where those who are taller will know the meaning of discomfort.

In the dress circle, go around or behind the premium seats - rows D and E at top non-premium price offer a good view. Better still, the side blocks rows A to D are second price and a great deal if you can get near the centre aisle. Be aware the end pairs of A and B have a restricted view but are this price anyway, so take them last, maybe. Row H is also second price, 6 and 24 are great for view and legroom with nothing in front. The rest are acceptable if legroom isn't required.

The whole upper circle main block is second price. Avoid row A, take the rest if all seats lower down are gone or if you are smaller and feel sitting in tiered rows is more comfortable. Slips are lowest price - take the ones here before balcony ones, but only the ends.

The whole balcony main block is third price, pretty adequate but take it after the rear stalls for view and comfort. As always the rear rows of the balcony are slightly better as they see over the rail. Slips here are to be taken after the upper circle ones, feels the monkey.
