A group of us saw Billy Elliot at the Palace Theatre recently. The show was brilliant and I would have normally given such a good production an "Excellent" score.
However, if you are considering booking tickets under NO circumstances should you choose seats in the grand circle unless you are considerably less than 5 feet tall and weight no more than 7 stones! The seats are extremely narrow and there's very little room between the rows. Definitely not suitable for the average person and purgatory for anyone a little larger. It was a very uncomfortable three and a half hours interspersed with stoppages for cast sickness; unavoidable and I do sympathise; and technical breakdown; which was unavoidable had the equipment been tested properly prior to curtain-up.
Drinks in the bar were extortionate and the toilet facilities in the bar were shabby and not very clean which also soured the evening somewhat.
Finally, if you do go and have a similar experience, there's no point complaining to the management as it gets you absolutely nowhere.
