Stalls - Any seats in middle of Rows D to H. Rows A, B and C are too close to the stage and you may miss out on a few acts that happen at the sides.

Prince Edward Theatre’s auditorium is quite large, and the stalls, in particular, feel very spacious. The section is divided into two, with the rear section further divided into three equal sections by two aisles. With no obstructions and roomy seating, this area is a great place to be seated. The whole of the Stalls is well-raked, which gives a clear view over people’s heads in front. The stage is quite wide but most of the seats are in line with it, apart from the ends of rows M -ZC. The overhang from the dress circle begins at row R, but its effect is minimal. As the stalls section is so vast, seats at the back can feel a bit far from the stage.

Dress circle

The Dress Circle is divided into a number of sections: the front section and the back, which has three blocks. The front section consists of only five rows divided by a wide centre aisle, making each section feel very intimate. The back of the dress circle is divided into three blocks of differing sizes; there is a larger middle section with two smaller ones either side. A safety rail at the centre ends of rows A - E can cause some obstruction of views. Legroom isn’t as generous as the stalls, but is still better than many West End theatres. The side boxes are well priced, but the view of the stage isn't great.

Grand circle

This is the highest level in the theatre. The grand circle has steep steps and is not suitable for those that suffer from vertigo. It is divided into front and rear sections, which are further divided into smaller sections. The best seats are in the middle of the central section. Seats in the grand circle curve around the auditorium and can feel extremely cramped, and the sightlines are affected at the ends of rows. Prices are reduced towards the rear of the section. The boxes in the upper circle are high and isolated with a side view of the stage.

Which seats offer the best view?

The best seats in the house can be found in the centre of the dress circle, rows D (seats 6-25), E (seats 7-26), and F-H (seats 8-27). These provide great views of large-scale musical productions as a whole. Sitting in the Stalls also allows for an intimate yet intense experience, due to the vastness of the stage.

In the dress circle, the best views are in the middle seats of the two front sections. In the grand circle, the best views are in rows A-C, seats 11-27.

Which seats offer the best value for money?

Cheaper tickets can be found in the grand circle, or in the loges either side of the dress circle and grand circle. If you choose to take seats in the first three rows of the grand circle, you can get good views of the stage for very cheap. The rear few rows of the stalls are typically heavily discounted, but offer great views.
