We watched River Dance from the balcony and had a very good experience. The skills of the dancers were phenomenally good. The length of the program made the investment a good one. The venue had good parking nearby.

The first couple of rows are okay for seeing the stage. After that, you can see it, but maybe not as well as closer rows.
