It was really great. I booked a matinee by mistake through Ticketmaster online so my error. Very enjoyable indeed. Great voices. The Circle does feel a long way away from the stage but all OK. A fraction expensive.

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.
