We had tickets as a Christmas present. Great seats in a Box, had seen the show before in the West End, excited to see it again, and thoroughly enjoyed it second time around.

I went here with my family to watch the Jersey Boys and thought both the venue and performance were fantastic!! The staff were really helpful and friendly and guided us to our seats. As we were in the booth seats we were very comfortable and had a good view of the stage. Plenty of leg room and it was a... More
