Best and worst seats

Absolutely right about the Adelphi Circle (both of them), you cannot see properly and there is no room. I will not sit anywhere other than the stalls in that theatre.

And who could see that the road would twist

The stalls seat I sat in at the Savoy was horribly uncomfortable - leg room wasn't great but not the worst, but I had a numb backside and an aching back within minutes, and literally couldn't sit still for the first act! Only good point was that we didn't pay the full £60 for them - we'd been moved down from the back of the upper circle as it was so quiet that night.
Also remember having absolutely no legroom - to the point of actually being in pain - in the second row of the grand circle at the Victoria Palace (but these are only £25) and the balcony seats at Her Majesty's theatre too.
Some of the best seats I've ever sat in were front row day seats at the Apollo Victoria - £25 and a totally unrestricted view - and similarly at the Palladium a few years back, reduced price front row of stalls which had a damn good view and acres of legroom!

The Novello, especially at the top, is unforgiveable bad. There is no leg room.

Nothing wrong with my seat in Queens Stalls Row B when I sat there for LesMis June 2005 - & plenty of legroom
(which I need, with 2 iffy knees I often need to 'unclick').

I thought it was only a few rows towards the back of the Palace Stalls which have lousy legroom (yes, I have sat in one).
(Offhand I can't remember which rows, though I thought it was 3 or 4 rows in the general area of M or O or thereabouts.)
Palace front stalls seem to me to have plenty of legroom -
& I've sat in several of the front few rows there (several from B to F I think).
I've found my notes re Palace Stalls legroom.
A young lady working in the Box Office (at some time during the last two and a half years) told me she thought
the rows with less legroom were Rows R & O & another.
It seems quite feasible that the other row might be the 1 row which is between O & R, ie Row P (there being NO Row Q).
(However, it's also quite feasible that the other row could be elsewhere!)
(Also, she might have misremembered - so don't take this as gospel: if booking in the Stalls, check!)

I hate the balcony at the Haymarket, but I can't explain why - I just feel inertia settling over me there and feel very, very distant from the action - any seat at the National seems better than those.
Agree about the Bush, but if it's a great play, it is fabulous seeing it in such an intimate space.
