Bottled it and took the TodayTix early booking offer.
Looks as if would have been OK for the price range and position I was looking for but just didn’t want the hassle of sitting in front of a few computer screens for an hour, reduced hassle just about offset by the additional booking fee.
Sat there for Present laughter and it works quite well, it seemed maybe a third across from the right but as monkey says you can move about a bit and happily no one stands directly behind it so to speak on stage. Who knows with a rearranged stage what the view will be like but I bought it without thinking, was so surprised it was there.
Went for the £20 row E dress circle seat in the end. I’ve sat there a couple of times in the past and don’t remember the pillar being a huge issue, so taking a chance it’ll be the same in the configuration they’re using for this...
I decided to go for one of the £20 in Dress Circle row Y. Sat there for The American Clock and A Christmas Carol and the view was good. Since Lungs seems to be staged in a similar way to those I hope the view won't be too restricted
Hey this will be my first time visiting the Old Vic. Really want to see this and shamelessly going to admit its because of casting. Just wanted to ask whether anyone has sat in stage stalls before for previous productions here at what the view is like? Is there much of a rake at all back here and will the actors be facing you much since the rest of the audience will be on the other side? Thanks.
Yes, theoracle , every row is raked, and the view is good. Restricted views mean a rail in view, not much of a worry. The back row does have much less legroom than the others. All productions in that format are designed to be viewed from both sides, so the action plays equally.
