Went and saw Kinky Boots and loved the show. It is always a great venue for a show and especially when the show is a good one. Well done!

We were able to enjoy this spectacular venue by getting discount tickets with TickeTek and ended up front and center! The view was breathtaking before the show even began and the production was simply perfection on high heels. We are looking forward to another show!

In a great location, this venue is gorgeous and beautiful in many ways. The foyer carries the show outside of the theatre hall to make the whole experience a good one. Although the foyer is very crowded at the end of a show, it is...More

Hi there. Yes you will see the show fine from those seats. Central and closer to the front if always better, but you will see the whole show from those seats. :)
