Wow, what an amazing, talented, beautiful, hard to watch, fascinating show. Had good seats at the front, be warned though there's not much leg room on the tables! Lovely theatre, amazing show.

We booked our tickets a while ago and since then had seen some amazing reviews of the show so couldn't wait to go. We were looking forward to seeing Audra McDonald but were completely blown away by her talent. What a voice and how she...More

The view from the Royal Circle is fine with some great seats. The centre will be more expensive and tend to sell out quick.
