Rochelle’s opinion

“The show has garnered legendary status as one of the longest-running West End shows, and it quite rightfully deserves it. If you’re looking for a good all-rounder then this is up there – it has a brilliant soundtrack which requires incredible singers to bring it to life. There’s drama and romance, plus the show is beautiful to watch thanks to its incredible design.”

Cheap tickets for booking ahead

The cheapest seats in the house are £22.50 and most of them are found in the balcony. Every one is marked as having limited leg room, so best to avoid them if you’re tall! However sightlines seem to be ok if you avoid the ones marked as having a rail in view, although of course the balcony is quite high up. If you need to look elsewhere there are a few £22.50 seats on other levels. All of these are reduced due to having a pillar in view. Reviews are mixed but if you don’t mind doing a bit of leaning during the show, they’re probably worth a try for a bargain. Check the reviews and photos on Seat Plan to make sure you know what you’re getting!
