From the moment we arrived, we were impressed. The theatre is a step back in time, beautifully restored and a visual delight. The whole cast and crew of Jersey Boys poured their heart, soul and immense energy into a fast-paced performance which culminated in a...More

We saw Jersey Boys on their last visit to Sydney in 2010 and as we loved the show then, I booked some great seats in the dress circle last week. The show was performed with the anticipated excellence, a great cast, superb choreography and great...More

Hi, the dress circle is great for children, the seats are all on angles up the aisles so you can see, I would recommend having seats closer to front in case you have tall people sitting in front.

Capitol Theatre Seating - Wicked (7 Replies)
I am hoping someone can give me some advice. I am planning on purchasing tickets to Wicked at The Capitol Theatre in Sydney. We have a choice between seats in the stalls - middle section about 7 rows back from the stage, or loge box seats (front row box) on the left looking towards the stage. The box seats sound enticing but could anyone please advise which way I would be best to go! Thanks in advance.

The box seats look very fancy, but for my money you will get a great view in the stalls 7 rows back from the stage. I'd go for that. Other opinions may vary.

I prefer the dress circle but try and stay within the first 10 rows. The stalls are fine but recommend the middle.

In Sydney visting our daughter/s Dec/Jan and for a suprise going to book for Billy Elliot at The Capitol. Any advice on where to dine for pre theatre meal near to the theatre? Have thought about one of the packages i.e. meal inc etc but not sure how good the restaurants would be! With this in mind, maybe it's best to just book tickets and arrange our own restaurants. What are your thoughts? Would obviously ask daughter if it wasn't a suprise....

the capitol theatre is not far from chinatown where you can either eat at a food court or at one of the many asian restaurants there.... thai, japanese, chinese etc.
