Very enjoyable show, we were sat 4 rows from the stage in the stalls, a bit to close for my liking! But my wife did the booking for us. For the older generation, it was easy to remember some of the images on the TV...More

Show was brilliant and the staff were polite and friendly. Bar prices were extortionate- £5.10 for a bottle of beer

Miss Saigon is fabulous but I found the sound at the beginning of the show a bit quiet and difficult to make out some of the words, that improved. The seats in the Palace are tiny, I'm only 5 foot 3 and my knees nearly...More

Fantastic performance, highly recommend, theatre is lovely but seats are too close together, more leg room needed. We sat in Grand tier which is high up and lots steps. Enjoyable experience never the less.

All the seats in the circle are on a steep slope so they all have a good view of the stage.

We went to a matinee which started at 14.30 and ended at 17.10. So I imagine an evening performance will be a similar length!

I’m sure this is possible. Contact the theatre direct to make sure. Management do not reply to any questions or reviews posted on TripAdvisor... I hope you get to see the show and enjoy it.
