Not available for this production - the monkey loved the 2018 run, however!
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.
Little to add to that on the page, except for noting in the stalls row B is the front row and the stage is high. There are more "non premium" seats than usual there too, so do take D, E or J around them. Due to the high set, row V 5 and 13 have the best view at second price, with least sound-desk disturbance - take the seats between them if it doesn't bother you.
In the dress circle, the four side block seats near the centre aisle become premium price Friday and Saturday - go row E rather than the two furthest over.
In the upper circle, the very restricted outermost corner seats in all rows are cheapest in the place - monkey likes C3 and 25 for the cash, otherwise they are ones for those just wanting to "be there" it feels. Beside them, seats off the centre aisle are the same price as centre row G. Take whichever you prefer, feels the monkey, bearing in mind row B has problems with people leaning.
In the balcony, note that rows F and G may be added if seats can be squeezed in among the lights.
The monkey advises checking performance times on your tickets and that performances are happening as scheduled, before travelling.
