Hi Andrea, all of our seats have a good view of the stage :) On the rare occasion that a seat has a limited view, this will be indicated by a little 'i' on the seat when you're looking at the seating plan - you can hover over this for more information. You might like to sit further forward for more intimate productions with smaller casts, but that's entirely a matter of preference - many of our audience have their favourite seats towards the middle or back of the auditorium! If you've never been before and aren't sure, you can always go for something in the middle. We have a steep 'rake' meaning your view shouldn't be hindered by the person in front. Hope that helps! - Amy
