The stalls are divided by two large aisles running the length of the section diagonally through the space. The front half of the stalls is made up of rows A-Q whilst the back half of the section is divided further by two half aisles running horizontally. The Circle overhang does not occur until row Q, meaning the front half is completely unrestricted and not overshadowed. The overhang only begins to affect those seats at the back of the house, which is factored into the pricing structure for the section. Because of the shape of the theatre some seats on the end of rows, particularly those in the first six rows are restricted, something which is again taken into account with their price.
The seats are very gently raked, but enough to allow those at the back a good view of the stage. Due to the interactive nature of The Lion King the stalls are an excellent place to sit with children, especially throughout the stunning opening number, though because of the rake, smaller children may have difficulty seeing the stage even with booster cushions. This is the best place to sit for children 8 and up. Boxes in the stalls are slightly raised from the level and also provide an interactive experience for the show. Each box has chairs rather than fixed seats which can be moved to allow the best possible view.
Although based on their animated classic, Disney’s The Lion King, has become an iconic musical in its own right thanks to the beautiful African infused singing, sets and costumes. Simba wrongly believes that he is to blame for the death of his father and it will take all his strength to return home and free his kingdom from his evil uncle Scar.
