The Stalls are divided into four separate blocks by vertical aisles running the whole length of the theatre. The auditorium feels gigantic, with almost 30 rows of seats and a maximum of 50 seats per row in the rear section. The rows widen towards the rear section creating a number of sight problems for those sat at either end of each row.The two central blocks are the best to sit in due to their proximity to the stage and clear sight lines. The auditorium is well raked, meaning that even seats which are further back have a good view of the action. The stage is set quite high, and so the first couple of rows should be avoided for those who do not wish to crane their necks looking whilst watching the show.
The Dress Circle overhang occurs a third of the way back, meaning in the rear third of the Stalls the top of the stage cannot be seen. There are no particular obstructions in this section, meaning most seats offer a clear view. For a cheaper alternative, seats towards the sides may be better value for money, giving an angled view of the show. The rows are built on a slight curve around the orchestra pit, but this doesn't create any particular problems.
