NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN OR THE EASILY OFFENDED.
William needs Megan and Harry to wrestle the crown off Charles. Meanwhile Beatrice and Eugenie are trying to rehabilitate their father's public image...
Channel 4's irreverent comedy comes to the stage for a short season.
Not available. Professional reviewers are in general pretty amused. There's enough here for anyone who is not a fan of the TV programme, and some decent topical humour is included. A few find the script witless in its lack of plot, but most are content to sit back and enjoy the lampooning of everybody except the Queen.
Probably not one for the monarchist or those unfamiliar with the monarchy, but something for those Brits who see the whole thing as a soap opera anyway. 3 stars seems to average out the reviews on this one, notes the monkey.
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.

The front row is B.
Be aware that at some performances prices have been altered to be far cheaper. The good news is that even central premium seats can now be picked up at the original second price or less, with some real bargains at row ends. The box office systems will show options at the time of purchase.
At full price, in the stalls, central seats in F to H are "super premium" - go for "premium" seats around them if you must, but B and C and seats beside the premium ones are as good. Real bargains are the end pairs in rows B to G at second price. Go as far back as M in the centre at top non-premium price, then skip N as P is cheaper for the same view, likewise T is cheaper than S. In the side blocks, J 13 to 8 / 34 to 39 are top non-premium price but have unlimited legroom. Skip the end 3 in this row - cheaper but the view isn't great, same goes for the pair behind in K. There are a few decent value second price seats K 4, 5, 33, 34 / L 5 to 7, 42 to 44 and N 9 to 12 / 37 to 40 providing a way to be closer to the stage if you can't get the front block ends. If you fancy the third price stuff at the sides then P and R 11 to 8 / P 37 to 40 / R 38 to 41 maybe, but fourth price T 6 to 10 or 39 to 42 are cheaper still.
In the dress circle, A 14 to 11 / 33 to 3 are front row without premium prices. Centrally, take C or D over B - cheaper, same view. Still in the centre block go F over E, H over G and L over both J and K - same view, far lower prices. Out to the sides, E 13 to 10 / 34 to 37 at second price are a decent bet. Fourth price H and J 11 to 5 / H 35 to 41 / J 36 to 42 are worthwhile, but L 9 to 37, as central as you can for £12.50 are bargains.
Boxes are second and third price - the monkey would take them only for privacy, there are more central (and less scary, third price) seats for the bananas.
