Just came from "The King and I" revival. An excellent production that benefitted from using all of the stage for a riverboat scene, the variety of sets, and the dance numbers. Seats are comfortable and sight lines are excellent.

Fabulous show with many talented actors. Loved the humour that was incorporated into the storylines as well to lighten the story. We sat in the balcony and was able to see clearly without too much shifting! We had brought friends from Tennessee and they were...More

The third tier, if you can get seats at the front of it shouldn't be too bad, but I think it might also depend on the interest in the show as well as their ages. I generally sit in the first couple of rows in the second... More

There is no formal dress code at the Pricess of Wales. You are welcome to wear whatever you choose. These days, most people dress quite casually.

As far as I remember, there is just popcorn, candy and icecream bars sold. We have taken in snacks because of the childrens allergies and there never has been a problem.
