Not strictly true, the lighting position in the old theatre was a scaffold above the box as can be seen in this image:-

The upper boxes were a new addition when the theatre was transformed by Delfont Mackintosh in 2003.
The Prince of Wales now has exceptionally good sight-lines, though I would readily agree that the boxes for this show offer the worst viewing experience. If any other seats in the stalls and circle are available I would personally choose them first.

How fascinating - and really appreciated the photo links - brought back memories.

I knew the follow spots were about in that location, but never really thought if they were just a platform or more solid. I guess they looked more solid to me than they were and I forgot they were accessed by ladder.

How things move on.

My 11th unlucky try at the lottery on Sat! Am I the unluckiest person alive or can someone on here beat that record number of tries!

I tried a few weeks ago, first time in! (That probably didn't help.)

Just a tip for when you'll eventually succeed - don't pick a seat at the right hand side of the front row (when looking at the stage). Lots of acoustic spill from the drum kit there, at times making the vocals a little hard to hear. If I remember correctly, the drums are screened off towards the rest of the band in the pit but not towards the pit wall.

Great drummer (and band) though!

Saw this the other night and despite the excellent cast I found it all rather dull as it only has one joke and the drama is all pitched at the same fast Tom and Jerryesque pace. The score was ok but not enough to make me want to listen again and the set looked like something that toured in 1988!

How this beat Scottsboro Boys is totally beyond me

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.

Only 1 joke? It's littered with them!
If I stay awake, it must be good.

I sort of agree, its no where near as funny as I expected and some jokes you can see coming a mile off.
