Finally saw it and loved it. Only criticism is I'd have like them to use a sofa lol.
If I stay awake, it must be good.

Does anybody know if the top level is mostly closed nowadays? Thinking of buying some cheapie tickets in the hope I'll be upgraded. Thanks.

I agree, go to the box office and ask for a day seat! I did last Monday (bank holiday) and got a top price stalls seat for 25! I would never risk the balcony hoping for it to be closed! The level should be closed for good! Worst sight lines ever! I got a cheap 10 there for Priscilla and hoped it be closed on a quiet Monday night but it wasn't and couldn't see 2/3 of the stage!

Closing the balcony would mean losing 300+ seats so I doubt it'll ever happen, being a listed building means Nimax can't do much to improve the theatre in terms of sightlines,

The balcony was open a couple of weeks ago, mid week. Agree it's a rotten view.

Oh I agree, they would never close the balcony for good! The size of the balcony is the main reason it's pretty much always open because you'd need a pretty empty house below to find seats for all the balcony!
