We watched the show from the circle D, it was brilliant show however. I know the theatre is old but it’s not that comfortable for the taller people. I felt crunched up and wish they would modernise it so we can have more leg room.

Don’t buy anything with restricted view. It means your behind a post. You might only see half the stage.

Stalls are my preference. Recently we were in row C and had a great view of the stage and also plenty of legroom for my taller partner.

Hi, yes these are good seats in the stalls. I'd be happy with those seats. Good views, very slight to the side.
