If you're tall you'll be ok. Small like I am and a lot of my friends are then you could be in for a very uncomfortable night. The new seats are wood with only slight padding in the middle so if you're feet don't touch the floor then the circulation is in for a rough ride as the edge cuts into you. I went once to a fairly short event and was uncomfortable, I went again to see Shakespear that lasted much longer and was in pain for the last hour. I vowed I would never pay to sit there again....what a shame. The majority of women I've spoken to under 5'4" have said the same as me, even without first hearing of my experience. Also I understand, in the Upper Circle the seats don't fold back, making it hard to allow people to pass and have so little leg room they have to sit with their legs spread to each side...not very comfortable either and not at all ladylike! God help any tall men that go there.
I've always gone to several shows each season but I'll not be back. I'll wait till things go to Sunderland Empire.
