Depending on what height you are, you won't see much of the ruby slippers(you still get a few glimpses), toto (unless being carried) and the yellow brick road (when it's not tilted)...I've sat in row B, 2 out of 3 times seeing the show and I personally preferred these seats.

Im in Row B, Seat 20/21 for the final show... I was near the back of the stalls last time and missed all the flying in the audience and the whole snow effects... It will be nice to not have people going back and forth to the toilet too... Will be nice to be up close with no distractions!!

A while ago, people spoke of Row A being completly removed, but is still on the seating chart... Does this mean Row B is the front row??

Im not sure, he did seem lost if im honest in the role. He was good as Professor Marvel but the other roles were just too much for him i think

Des only plays Marvel and The Wizard. Uncle Henry (I think) plays all the other Oz counterparts for Des

No, Des was the doorman at my show definatly, but he was not the tour guide. And he doesnt do any dancing what-so-ever... Quite a small, unimpressive part
