Saw Harry Potter and the cursed child, the play was amazing! I was seated at the balacony, the viev was fine but the lack of legroom made me sit uncomfortable for 5 Hours. Avoid these seats if you are tall. Ryanair has better legrroom.

We did both shows on the same day, with a meal in between, you actually don't find the time going during the performance anyway and as I'm in my fifties with a bad back and found it OK, you should be fine!!!
