Lyceum Theatre seating plan

Lyceum Theatre Stalls

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.

    I previously saw The Lion King earlier on in the year on tour in Southampton and had front row seats but on the far left of the row, so this time I opted for a more central view. These seats are brilliant if you want a close view where the actors expressions are clearly visible and being so close you feel like you're really a part of the show. However, as these seats are pretty much level with the front two rows, the people in front's heads getting in the way can become a slight issue. Also, constantly looking up as the stage is quite high can give your neck a bit of an ache but I didn't really notice it until the end of the show. If you want a more overall view of the stage I'd suggest sitting a few rows back. If you want to be close to the stage, I'd suggest sitting front row as the tickets tend to be cheaper and there will be nobody obstructing your view in front of you, I will be visiting again in February with front row seats.
