Bought tickets to the Book of Mormon last minute/cheap seats and seats were excellent (Row M) .. The Theatre itself was clean, tidy, service was great and efficient both before and during the interval. Surprising drink prices were not over the top.

Seats comfortable, liked the attention to detail of staff ensuring patrons were seated safely - thereby avoiding the 'unexpected' step down.
